Nettles are very nutritious and high in minerals including iron. Regular use of nettle tea is great for anemia. Nettles are wonderful for kidneys, and female conditions including PMS. The tea can be taken safely long term. In high doses, FRESH nettles are very effective for seasonal allergies as it acts as an antihistamine. NEVER harvest nettles after they have flowered as chemicals in the plant at this time can cause urinary tract irritation!
