Natural health enthusiasts suggest that stinging nettle seeds can be a potentially effective way to support lung and throat health and promote overall wellness of the respiratory system. Many naturalists believe the seeds work as a natural astringent for the lungs by helping to expel mucus.
All parts of nettle are amazing for keeping your skin hair and nails healthy, shiny and strong.
It’s often recommended that women use stinging nettle during their monthly menstrual cycle. It is believed to help the body rid itself of toxins by allowing the flushed out liver to process higher levels of estrogen more efficiently. This estrogen tolerance may calm some of the symptoms that often accompany a regular female menstrual cycle. Also, nettle is packed with iron, and it's good to have some extra iron in your diet during menstruation.
If you’re trying to kick coffee, or at least cut back on caffeine, stinging nettle seeds could be the answer. When ingested, the seeds are said to have a mild stimulant effect that helps you stay alert and focused during the day. Herbalists credit this energy to the support the seeds give to the adrenal glands. Nettle seeds work as an adaptogen (which is a natural substance that helps the body adapt to stress). They are often recommended to people who live and work in high stress environments and feel constant exhaustion as a result. Nettle seeds are believed to help restore balance to the adrenals, thus promoting energy levels and supporting an overall feeling of well-being.
Nettle seeds not only work as an adaptogen, but also as a trophorestorative (a substance that acts as a nutritive restorative for a particular organ or organ system), which many naturalists believe may have an impact on healthy kidney function.
Urtica dioica (Urticaceae) is commonly known as nettle, common nettle, or stinging nettle.
Some consider stinging nettle a bothersome weed, but its long history of use tells a different story. Stinging nettle has been used as a source of fiber (stem), dye (leaf and rhizome), food/fodder (leaf), and medicine (leaf, rhizome/root, and seed).
Since ancient times, stinging nettle has been used as a fiber crop substitute for flax. People have been making fishing nets, ropes, paper and a variety of other things all throughout our history, and it was even used in both of World Wars when other crops like cotton were scarce.
