Nettle grows wild in many parts of the world, and the fresh leaves are often used in salads and other dishes for added health benefits. Its leaves, before picking, are covered with fine stinging hairs to protect the plant in its natural habitat.
Nettle has traditionally been enjoyed as a wild edible. This nutrient rich herb is a significant source of vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium, silicon, potassium chloride, chlorophyll, protein, and dietary fiber. The vitamin content may help support vibrant skin, hair, nails, and a healthy circulatory and respiratory system. Folk herbalists have used nettle preparations for the skin and also to support healthy urinary function.*
