This is one of the most amazing nourishing herbs and my favorite nourishing infusion. Rich in vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, iron, and vitamin C, it is often used for anemia and with excessive bleeding. It's high vitamin and mineral content supports blood and tissue formation. Nettle also supports liver and provides hormonal balance. This herb can be used to support the body in gentle cleansing prior to conception as well as nourishing it for conception. Stinging nettle helps to prepare the body for pregnancy and sustains the embryo after conception by nourishing the uterus. It promotes strengthening of the kidneys and adrenal glands and has a high amount of chlorophyll, which acts as a detoxifier. It is also high in vitamin K, which is important for newborn health.
Nettle Leaf - contains nearly every vitamin and mineral necessary for human growth and health. Abundant in vitamins A, C, D, and K, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, iron and sulfur. Nettle contains more chlorophyll than any other herb, which is important to clean, purify and oxygenate the blood. It guards against anemia, helps gently relieve constipation, and is extremely nutritious. It nourishes and strengthens kidneys so as to help facilitate the increased demands of the mother's blood cleansing during pregnancy. Eases leg cramps and other muscle spasms and pain due to the high calcium content. (Nettle, Red Clover and Raspberry Leaf all contain calcium in its most absorbable form. Calcium and magnesium are said to be the two most important minerals that affect a woman's ability to conceive and maintain a pregnancy. Spinach, chocolate, rhubarb and brewers yeast can interfere with the absorption of calcium, and calcium supplements made of bone meal and oyster shell should be avoided as they are not as easily absorbed in the body and they have been shown to contain high levels of lead, mercury, cadmium and other toxic metals.)
Nettle is an all-around perfect fertility herb. It nourishes the glandular system, tones the uterus, is rich in minerals, and may even relieve seasonal allergies due to its natural anti-histamine properties. To top that off, nettle contains the greatest amount of chlorophyll out of all herbs, which is important to clean, purify and oxygenate the blood.
