People have used Nettle for centuries as an herbal medicine. Modern research also supports many of the potential health benefits of nettle and nettle tea. Nettle leaf can be used to treat a variety of things including:
1. Allergies and hayfever thanks to its antihistamine properties.
2. Urinary tract health; Nettle may help flush harmful bacteria from the urinary tract. This can benefit people who have urinary conditions, such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). BPH causes an enlarged prostate gland in men. This can cause pain or other problems urinating.
According to one 2013 studyTrusted Source, men with BPH who took nettle extract had fewer clinical symptoms than those who didn’t.
3. Alleviate arthritic pain and symptoms of gout.
4. Lactation stimulant.
