Stinging nettle has been given its name due to its ability to give a passerby a quick sting from its leaves. But the stinging nettle plant is more than a passerby’s momentary irritant, it has been used for thousands of years as a medical herb. Stinging nettle has had such profound effects on everything from hair growth to hormone balance that we have included it in our PolyPlus nutraceutical blend.
All parts of the stinging nettle plant can been used for medicinal purposes but we have included stinging nettle root because of its ability to balance androgen and estrogen levels within the body. Stinging nettle root works to optimize and stabilize the endocrine system. It can bind to excess androgen and estrogen hormones in the body and remove or distribute them when and where they are needed. Singing nettle also offers many nutritional benefits as well. They are loaded with vitamins C, B and K as well as minerals like choline, calcium and magnesium.
Stinging nettles can be used in many ways and offer benefits for women of all ages. Stinging nettles offer immune support, hormone balance, hair regrowth, lactation benefits and an energy boost. Stinging nettle also offers detoxifying benefits, can stimulate metabolism and works as an anti-inflammatory.
