Nettle Tea - Health Benefits

Nettle tea is made from common nettles (Urtica dioica) and, as well as being tasty, has some great health benefits. It is actually not a true tea but rather, is a tisane - true teas are those made from the tea plant (Camellia sinensis), tisanes include hot drinks made from herbs, spices & fruits.


This particular tisane is rich in vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, B complex, calcium, potassium and magnesium. It is also a diuretic which means it helps reduce water retention, aids weight loss and improves kidneys and bladder function.


Nettle tea contains antioxidants and polyphenols, research suggests that polyphenols help to reduce inflammation and chronic diseases (https://www.mdpi.com/2072-6643/10/11/1618). Additionally, evidence suggests that the drinking of nettle tea can help with blood sugar management for patients with type 2 diabetes (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24273930).
