Stinging Nettle Tea Improves Prostate Health
Stinging nettle tea, although typically considered a pest due to the speed and density with which it grows, can be an effective remedy to a range of conditions.
Urtica dioica in Latin, stinging nettles occur in the northern hemisphere amidst the temperate climates of Europe and North America in the spring ad summer. Growing to approximately 1 – 2 metres high, they can be seen growing in just about any patch of soil that is not grazed on or maintained.
The harsh chemically administered sting for which stinging nettles have become infamous – although quite uncomfortable – is actually the source of its benefit as a medicinal herb. With the right treatments, stinging nettles can be used to treat a range of ailments, not least of which are Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) and improving prostate health in general. Though, to be properly effective, the stinging nettle must be treated correctly. Cue stinging nettle tea!
It must be pointed out though, that stinging nettle tea is not a cure for either prostate cancer or prostate health problems in general.
It does however ease the symptoms associated with these conditions.
