Nettle Root - Bulk Organic
Nettle root consists of the dried or fresh roots of Urtica dioica or Urtica urens. However, in many instances in herbals, nettle root is not referred to or recommended separately from the whole plant. Most often, herbals refer to nettle as the whole plant, and describe its uses accordingly. Germany's Commission E and ESCOP recommend nettle root specifically for relieving urinary disorders. The British herbal Compendium recommends nettle leaf or herb as a mild diuretic. But nettle's uses are far broader. Dr. James Duke cites a multitude of therapeutic uses for nettle.
The common nettle comes by its other name, stinging nettle, honestly. The innocuous plant, a perennial that grows in many parts of the world and that has been naturalized to Brazil, delivers a stinging burn when the hairs on the leaves and stems are touched. Its healing properties are as well known among various cultures and are part of folklore and tradition. Those healing powers are even alluded to in at least one fairy tale, The Swan Princess, in which the heroine must weave shirts of nettle leaf to cure her twelve brothers who have been turned into swans by an evil stepmother. The nettle leaf and root both have medicinal properties, but each is more effective against different complaints. Nettle root is used fto support prostate health.
Summary - Nettle root has showed a great deal of promise for support of benign prostatic hyperplasia, a condition affecting a large proportion of men over the age of 40 that is often a precursor to prostate ailments. Because of its diuretic and hypotensive actions, nettle leaf may lower blood pressure. If you are taking diuretics or other drugs meant to lower blood pressure, consult your doctor before using nettle root. Its long term use is not recommended.
