Reaching a height of two to four feet, it blossoms from June to September, boasting heart-shaped leaves and vibrant yellow or pink flowers.

While stinging nettle products primarily utilize the stem and leaves, it’s important to note that the roots also possess pharmacological properties. This herb’s anti-inflammatory qualities make it effective in addressing various health issues. Notably, the aboveground parts have shown significant promise in providing relief for allergies and respiratory ailments. Additionally, the roots have the ability to alleviate urinary disorders and enlarged prostate.

Furthermore, stinging nettle offers a broad range of therapeutic benefits, making it a versatile and valuable medicinal plant.

5 Benefits of Stinging Nettle

Despite its reputation for pain, stinging nettle is used to help a number of ailments. Studies have shown stinging nettle has antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-ulcer, astringent and analgesic capabilities.

According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, the plant has been used most commonly throughout history as a diuretic and for treating painful muscles and joints, eczema, arthritis, gout, and anemia. Today, it’s used primarily to treat urinary issues, as well as allergies and joint pain.

The most proven health benefits of using stinging nettle help with the following:

1. Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) and Urinary Issues

BPH symptoms are caused by an enlarged prostate gland pressing on the urethra. BPH sufferers experience varying levels of increased urges to urinate, incomplete emptying of the bladder, painful urination, post urination dripping and reduced urinary flow.

Doctors are still not entirely sure why stinging nettle alleviates some of these symptoms, but many clinical studies infer that it contains chemicals that affect the hormones that cause BPH. When taken, it also directly affects prostate cells. Stinging nettle root extract has also been shown to slow or stop the spread of prostate cancer cells. It’s usually used in combination with saw palmetto and other herbs. The root of the plant is primarily used in connection with urinary issues.

Stinging nettle is used as a successful general diuretic and can help urine flow as well. It’s also used in home remedies for bladder infections.

2. Osteoarthritis and Joint Pain

Arthritis sufferers often experience joint pain, typically in the hands, knees, hips and spine. Nettle works alongside nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to allow patients to decrease their NSAID use. Because prolonged use of NSAIDs can cause a number of serious side effects, this is an ideal pairing.

Nettle can also provide relief when taken orally. Another study published in the Journal of Rheumatology shows stinging nettle’s anti-inflammatory power against other autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis.

3. Hay Fever

Histamine production in the body triggers the specific adverse reactions associated with allergies, resulting in uncomfortable symptoms like congestion, sneezing, and itching.

Stinging nettle’s anti-inflammatory qualities have a direct impact on crucial receptors and enzymes involved in allergic reactions. When consumed at the onset of hay fever symptoms, it actively prevents their occurrence. Interestingly, despite containing histamine, which might seem counterintuitive, there is a historical use of histamines to treat severe allergic reactions.

Moreover, substantial evidence suggests that low plasma histamine levels, rather than high levels, are present in severe reactions. In a comprehensive global study conducted by the National College of Naturopathic Medicine, stinging nettle proved more effective than placebos in a 98-person, randomized, double-blind study, providing clear evidence of its remarkable ability to alleviate allergies.

4. Bleeding

Certain products containing stinging nettle have shown, when applied to the skin, can reduce bleeding during surgery. The product, called Ankaferd blood stopper, is made up of alpinia, licorice, thyme, common grape vine and stinging nettle, and has also shown evidence of reducing bleeding after dental surgery.

5. Eczema

Eczema afflicts sufferers with a long-lasting, dry, and itchy rash. The Penn State University College of Medicine study mentioned above highlights stinging nettle’s antihistamine and anti-inflammatory qualities, making it a natural treatment for eczema. Sufferers can take nettle orally and use a cream to internally combat eczema and alleviate the itchiness and redness of the rash.
