Freeze-Dried Stinging Nettles (420mg 120 tablets)

Planetary Formulas is proud to introduce Freeze-Dried Stinging Nettles, derived from organically cultivated nettles. Stinging nettles have long been renowned for their tonifying properties and more recently have become noted for providing seasonal sinus support. Planetary Formulas premium nettles have been freeze-dried to preserve the potency of the active constituents in the plant's stinging hairs and leaves. This process ensures that Freeze-Dried Stinging Nettles will deliver all the benefits inherent in the nettle plant. The suggested daily use supplies the same dosage used in clinical research on freeze-dried nettles.

A History of Traditional Use

Stinging nettle (Urtica diocia) has been a staple of herbal practitioners for centuries. At one time nettles were among the most commonly eaten late winter or early spring greens, due to their high content of vitamins, minerals and amino acids. They are also a rich source of flavonoids and chlorophyll.Nettles have traditionally been used as a tonic and for respiratory support. According to the noted 16th century herbalist Nicholas Culpeper, "when juiced, the [nettle] leaves are used to open the lungs." Maude Grieves, the author of A Modern Herbal - one of the most popular sources among herbalists - reported on the traditional practice of inhaling the smoke of burning nettle for respiratory support

The primary active components of freeze-dried nettle leaf are concentrated in the fresh stinging hairs, and include histamine, serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine) and acetylcholine. Freeze-drying preserves these essential elements to provide the full spectrum of constituents necessary for use as a respiratory support herb.

Suggested use: 1 tablet twice daily between meals.
