9. Digestive Care
Antioxidants and other anti-inflammatory properties make nettle the perfect warrior against any digestive complaints. For those who experience Crohn’s, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, acid reflux or even parasites can use nettle to re-balance gastrointestinal flora.
10. Combats Menstrual Problems
In the nettle leaf, there is very high vitamin K content. This vitamin is something called a styptic, which is a compound that reduces bleeding. However, there is much more vitamin K present in the fresh leaf than there is in the dried leaf of nettle. This quality of nettle makes it an excellent remedy for women who experience heavy bleeding during menstruation or even postpartum bleeding. The analgesic effect can also ease any cramping that happens during menstruation!
