Nettle Root
Urtica dioica L. ssp. dioica
Organic
1 ounce

Nettle root has been used historically to help relieve prostate troubles and studies show that it may help treat male pattern baldness. Use caution as Nettle Root may lower blood pressure. LONG TERM USE OF NETTLE ROOT IS NOT RECOMMENDED.

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.
