Is nettle (tea) healthy?

Nettle is very healthy and full of vitamins and minerals. It also has a purifying effect on the human body.

Below is an explanation of the valuable elements and the associated properties that nettle contains:

  • - Vit. B1: energy supply and beneficial for nervous system and heart
  • - Vit. B2: energy supply
  • - Vit. B5: energy supply and construction and breakdown of proteins and fats
  • - Vit. B11 (folic acid): production of red and white blood cells
  • - Vit. A: good for growth and skin, hair, nails and eyes
  • - Vit. C: strengthens the immune system and increases the absorption of iron from food
  • - Vit. E: regulates metabolism
  • - Vit. K: regulates blood clotting

Minerals: iron, silicon, calcium, potassium, boron, sodium, copper, magnesium, zinc, sulfur, manganese, chromium and certain nitrates.

We highlight a number of important minerals:

Iron is an important element in red blood cells. The red blood cells are responsible for transporting oxygen throughout the body. With an iron deficiency, this does not function properly, which can lead to fatigue.

Calcium is important for the building up and keeping bones strong and healthy.

Sodium and potassium are important for maintaining fluid balance and blood pressure.

Magnesium is essential for the proper transmission of nerve impulses and the control, formation and functioning of muscles.

Nettle has a positive influence on Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) and urinary tract infections

The most recognized health benefit of using stinging nettles is its beneficial effect against benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also known as enlarged prostate and urinary tract infections. Clinical studies indicate that nettles contain components that affect the hormones responsible for BPH. (source: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/11509966/)

Nettle helps with osteoarthritis and joint pain relief

Research shows that nettles help relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis and joint pain, most commonly in the case of pain in the hands, knees, hips and spine. Nettles even work in combination with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which can reduce the use of NSAIDs. Stewed nettle leaves were used for the study. Further research should show whether this also applies to nettle tea. (source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6100552/)
