Stinging Nettle (Urtica Dioica)

Also known as: Common Nettle, Nettle, Nettle Leaf, Ortica, Radix Urticae, Stinger, Tsuknida, Urtica Dioica

Stinging nettle grows naturally in the U.S., Canada and Europe and contains acetylcholine and serotonin. In the brain, acetylcholine acts as a neurotransmitter, a chemical used for communication between neurons, and a neuromodulator, a chemical messenger that affects the neurotransmission of a diverse group of neurons. Serotonin is known as a “happy chemical” because it contributes to your overall feelings of happiness and wellbeing. Ancient civilizations used stinging nettle to treat various health issues. Today, the roots of stinging nettle are popular for supporting prostate health. Nettle is also used to promote urinary tract health and as a diuretic to increase the flow of urine.
