Nettle leaf is a natural blood and urine purifier that manages creatinine levels. Thus, it enhances kidney’s health. Among its cosmetic use, nettle tea is effective in improving hair quality.

Diseases are progressing fast and getting converted into deadly diseases. Being a Diet Consultant and health coach, I advise clients with kidney problems, joints or knee pain, and UTI illnesses as well as those seeking improved health and fitness. My sincere advice to all of them is to use Nettle Leaf Tea daily. I recommend that regular tea be replaced with nettle tea to control health problems and improve systemic health.

Nettle leaf has been used curatively to treat pain in joints and kidney problems, enlarged prostate, hay fever and UTIs since ancient times. Nettle tea is a natural diuretic and controls creatinine levels into the blood. Creatinine is the waste or toxin present in blood or in urine. Nettle leaf is used to combat pain, osteoarthritis and allergies. Nettle leaf can be easily incorporated in the meal in soups or salads or can be used as nettle tea. Nettle tea has medicinal properties and benefits recognized by the WHO.

Nettle Tea is beneficial for the following reasons:

    • Nettle Tea and kidney

Nettle leaf acts a commanding kidney tonic, it helps into improve kidney function. Being diuretic in nature, it has benefits such as helping improve the inconsistent flow of urine and keeping creatinine levels balanced. It reverses the signs of enlarged prostate or BPH. Moreover, nettle leaf is a good source of fatty acids, phyto-sterols and phytoestrogens. These are anti-inflammatory, modify growth features, normalize lipid peroxidation and protect muscles of the urinary bladder. Moreover, nettle leaf is enriched with polypheno ls that possess antioxidant properties. Nettle leaf and nettle tea are beneficial in lowering elevated creatinine levels and serum blood urea nitrogen (BUN: creatinine). It wipes off elevated creatinine levels from the kidney, preventing kidney diseases from developing. Thus, it helps in improving nephrotoxicity and kidney load. Hence, nettle leaf and nettle tea can help cure kidney and urinary tract infections naturally.

    • Nettle Tea for hair

Nettle tea is rich in silica; vitamins such as A, C, and B12 along with minerals such as iron and calcium, all of which support hair growth. Even hair stylists recommend using nettle leaf to enhance hair growth. It helps in improving blood circulation and reducing hair shedding. Certain hair care products also contain nettle leaf extracts to treat weak hair.

    • Nettle tea for uric acid

Nettle leaf is very effective in controlling uric acid levels. Thus nettle tea help in regulating edema and gout. Nettle tea is a worthy herbal choice for normalizing inflammatory arthritis pain.

    • Nettle tea and general health

Nettle leaf is effective in managing itching and sneezing caused by hay fever. Nettle tea is a healthy option to antihistamines for sensitive people. Studies published in 2013 and 2015 also prove nettle leaf and nettle tea aid diabetic patients.

    • Nettle Dosage

I rely upon Nettle Herb from BestSource Nutrition, which is safe and clinically prove nettle. The recommended dosage is 2-3 gms of nettle leaf per tea cup. The decoction water of the nettle leaf (which is referred to as nettle tea) can be consumed 2-3 times in a day.

This natural herb offers immense benefits. Being diuretic, it lowers hypertension and edema. It boosts the functioning of the kidney, since nettle leaf helps control creatinine levels.In a nutshell, nettle tea is great for issues of balancing creatinine levels and improving kidney functions, reducing arthritic pain and improving healthy hair.
