The Stinging Nettle is a member of the nettle family (Urticaceae) which grows wild on compost and landfills. It is a very old and popular medicinal plant, the touch of which remains unforgotten. The reason for the stinging is formic acid (in 1924 the properties of the Stinging Nettle were researched for the first time) ; further active ingredients include chlorophyll, histamine, serotonin, tannic acids, gallic acid, glukokinine, acetylcholin, vitamins A, C and E, mineral salts (e.g. iron), magnesium, silicone, sodium, calcium and phosphor. The plant is also rich in plant hormones and enzymes. Caffeoyl-china-acid has pain suppressant, adstringent and anti-inflammatory properties – a fact which lends itself for treatment of arthrosis, rheumatism, joint pain and gout.

The Stinging Nettle is also used to cleanse blood, body and skin and to balance hemoglobin levels. The root is known to treat issues with the prostate and help to facilitate urinating. A spring cleansing with Stinging Nettle is a tradition in many households (often cooked as a vegetable) which also helps stimulating the digestive system. Stinging Nettle has lactating, blood sugar reducing and detoxifying properties. It’s regular consumption inproves the metabolism of the body.
