Nettle: properties and benefits:

Nettle (Urtica dioica) is a herbaceous plant particularly rich in potassium, phosphorus, iron, vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium and potassium. Widespread both in the east and in the west, known for the irritating power of the hairs that cover its leaves and stems.

However, its beneficial and healing properties are less known, making it an effective medicinal plant, particularly used in herbal medicine. We must also not forget that nettle can be used in the kitchen in the preparation of tasty dishes.
It is considered a real panacea for women who go through menopause and a consequent reduction in bone mass, due to calcium loss.
The consumption of nettle is also useful for all those suffering from anemia or iron deficiency, with particular reference to women of childbearing age. Nettle has hemostatic and antidiabetic properties.

The intake of nettle is recommended to promote intestinal regularity and in case of episodes of dysentery.
