Nettle tea is a recognized diuretic for creatinine control. India’s best nettle leaftea is grown in Kashmir. Brewed from a standardized recipe, it can greatly enhance kidney health.

Creatinine is a breakdown product generated during natural metabolism. Kidneys routinely filter out creatinine through urine. The level of creatinine in the blood can build up for various reasons such as improper kidney functioning, UTIs, dehydration, or even high intensity training and workouts. However, high creatinine levels in the blood are usually a precursor of compromised kidney functioning. Left unchecked, high creatinine levels can lead to life-threatening conditions such as uremia.

Nettle (Urtica dioica) grows wild in the northern hemisphere in areas with heavy rainfall. Kashmir’s pristine mountains offer the best Indian nettle leaf. Traditional recipes have used nettle leaf and other parts of the plant for thousands of years. Nettle tea, brewed from fresh or dried nettle leaf, is a known diuretic recipe to aid kidney functioning and health. Nettle tea cleanses the blood, flushing out toxins. This helps control creatinine and uric acid levels, thus aiding in treating conditions ranging from infections to kidney stones, polycystic kidneys, and kidney failure.

Nettle leaf contains fat-soluble vitamins and significant amounts of water-soluble vitamins. Trace elements and vitamins stimulate the immune system and help the body to resist bacterial and viral infections. The water-soluble vitamins B, C, E, iron, zinc, selenium and manganese in nettle leaf are potent antioxidants.

The flavonoids in nettle leaf have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that limit oxidative damage responsible for chronic diseases. Nettle leaf acts as an anti-hypertensive to control blood pressure.
