What Are The Benefits Of Stinging Nettle Tea?

Posted in Uncategorized

For anyone who has ever ventured out into the woods, you learn very quickly to avoid nettles like the plague. The heart-shaped leaves of the nettle pack quite a punch in the form of almost invisible hairs that cause those who come in contact with them to have stinging, red and irritated skin.

But Mother Nature did not create these plants just to cause pain; surprisingly, simply drying the nettle leaves (use gloves when handling them!) and making them in to a tea yields amazing health benefits that have been touted for hundreds of years.

Internally, it seems there is no end to what nettle tea can do for the body. To begin with, nettle tea is rich in vitamins: A; C; E; B1; B2; B3; B5; calcium; iron; folate; potassium; magnesium; manganese; phosphorous; selenium; and zinc – who needs daily supplements after sipping a hot cup of nettle tea? Even if you do not suffer from any ailments, drinking nettle tea regularly can help keep you in tip-top shape.

As nettle tea is a natural diuretic (meaning it flushes out your system), it aids in the relief of urinary tract infections and kidney stones. It can also relieve diarrhoea symptoms; just be careful, as drinking too much nettle tea also acts as a laxative!

Nettle tea contains anti-inflammatory properties that assist in a respite from joint pain and arthritis (either from drinking the tea or applying it directly to the joints – the tea, not the leaves!). These properties help open nasal cavities, as well, allowing relief from hay fever and other allergies.

If you are sick, drinking nettle tea will help your cough and asthma. Some people have even replaced their coffee with nettle tea, stating the boost and vitality they feel after a cup kicks anything they ever experienced from drinking caffeine.

Woman gain additional benefits from consuming nettle tea; as mentioned before, nettle tea is a natural diuretic, which eliminates water retention and bloating during menstruating. Additionally, during menstruation and after childbirth, drinking nettle tea can minimize excessive blood loss. Using the tea as a rinse on the hair encourages growth and helps strengthen the root; just be sure to let that boiling hot tea cool down before you dump it on your head.

Externally, nettle tea is a winner, too. The anti-inflammatory properties that help arthritis also fight eczema and acne. Kind of ironic, considering the itchy inflammation the leaves cause if they get in direct contact with your skin! Additionally, the diuretic effect of the tea helps keep your system flushed out, which always equals healthier, glowing skin.

And don’t worry – drinking nettle tea will not cause your insides to flare up in irritation like contact with your skin will. However, as with all herbal remedies, ensure you introduce nettle tea to your diet gradually in order to avoid an allergic reaction.

If you are too frightened to venture on a nettle retrieving expedition on your own (those stings are painful!), don’t worry about missing out; a nearby health food store will definitely stock nettle tea either in capsule or dried leaf format – after all, they have been aware of the health benefits of nettle tea forever!

    My mom is in Kidney Failure and is trying to stay off dialysis. What drinking nettle tea help her kidneys?

    • Hi Lori

      I’m sorry to hear about your mom.

      Unfortunately kidney failure is very serious and I would suggest you speak with your mom’s doctor about whether or not drinking nettle tea could help.

    What about the caffeine content?

    • Hi Carri

      Nettle tea is caffeine free, if it is made from fresh or dried nettle leaves with no additives.

      If you are drinking a prepackaged variety of nettle tea, it should clearly state on the package whether or not it contains caffeine. Sometimes the packaged teas are a blend of several different types of tea, some of which might contain caffeine.

      Both the loose leaf nettle tea and the prepackaged nettle tea on the where to buy nettle tea page are caffeine free.

      Hope that helps.
