ORGANIC NETTLE LEAF, powder
Botanical Name: Urtica dioica
Origin: Albania / Germany
Production: Nettle is a common botanical native to Africa and western Asia. Over time it has become naturalized across the globe and it can now be found growing wild in many parts of the world. It grows in temperate climates, in shady regions with moist soil.
Qualities: Nettle leaf, also known as stinging nettle, ortiga, or brennessel, has stinging hairs that protect the plant. When touched, the hairs cause irritation and welts, which tend not to last long and rarely cause serious harm. Once picked, the stinging hairs lose their potency within minutes. The harvested leaves have been used in traditional medicine for centuries.
Nettle leaves are rich in minerals and consumed for their diuretic and soothing effects on their urinary tract. Nettle is also used for joint ailments and as an astringent, a detoxifier, and for its high levels of vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium, silicon, potassium chloride, chlorophyll, protein, and dietary fiber.
Common Use: Nettle leaf powder has a refreshing, slightly bitter taste, and can be taken in capsules or added to soups, smoothies, or juices. For an herbal tea infusion, we recommend using cut nettle leaves.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry, dark place in an airtight container. Refrigeration not required.
Safety: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.

Overall , I am very
Overall , I am very happy with your service. But, mistakes are made, you have sent me "organic nettle leaf" instead of "organic nettle powder". That makes a problem for me, I make a morning mix of powders as a supplement. Leaves don't mix very well with powders and are not well palatable.It was disappointing as it basically and seriously affected negatively my mix.It is not easily useable , just take in a spoon of it and go...…….. I did not say anything but now you have given me the opportunity. I will continue buying from you but you should know this. Mistakes are made, my address, items switched. So , my advice, have different persons double check orders , maybe a senior employee while rookies do the bull work.. Thanks for good efforts and good luck.
