Stinging Nettle, rich in nutrients, is often compared to spinach. It is a good source of chlorophyll, minerals (particularly iron and soluble silica) and vitamins. From a pharmacological point of view, Stinging Nettle is most disconcerting. It contains a variety of acids (formic, silicic, threonic, etc.), amines (acetylcholine, choline, serotonine, histamine, etc.), flavonoids, etc. However, none of these molecules explain its beneficial effects. According to a reference, a polysaccharide fraction (not yet chemically identified) would be responsible for the anti-inflammatory effect and a polypeptide fraction or lectine for its immune effect.(5) But, these fractions have not been characterized and no other researchers have confirmed this data. Stinging Nettle promotes uric acid elimination and red blood cell production. Although its active principles are still unknown, Stinging Nettles activity is very well documented.The German Commission E acknowledges the following uses for Stinging Nettle leaf and whole plant (as opposed to the root): as supportive therapy for rheumatic ailments, as irrigation therapy for inflammatory diseases of the lower urinary tract and prevention and treatment of kidney stones
