Nettle is useful for a whole range of complaints such as rheumatism, seasonal allergies and the early stages of prostate complaints in men. It is a natural diuretic so if you use this herb regularly be sure to eat foods high in potassium like bananas and fresh vegetables.

Orange Naturals Tincture Advantages
All Orange Naturals tinctures are made from organic or wild-crafted herbs. During tincture-making, our master herbalists ensure that the magic of every herb is unleashed. The result is a medicinal version of liquid gold. Each tincture is bursting with the healing power of nature. Rapid absorption of a tincture taken orally allows the body to quickly begin working to restore health on every level. The body can absorb up to 98% of the medicinal components of the Orange Naturals herbal tincture since absorption takes place immediately in the mouth. In contrast, herbs taken in capsule or tablet form much first be broken down by the digestive system and thus absorption can be significantly lower.
Each ml contains 250 mg of organically grown stinging nettle (herb tops, Urtica dioica). It is a 1:4 herb top extract in a non-medicinal base of 40% gluten-free grain alcohol and purified water.
Stinging Nettle herb top helps to relieve seasonal allergy symptoms and rheumatic complaints.
For best results, take nettle on an empty stomach, which means about 15 minutes before a meal or snack, or at least 1 hour after.
Adults 18 and over: take 2 ml, 3 times per day.
For best absorption, squirt the tincture under your tongue and hold it there for a few seconds, then swallow. If you want to remove the alcohol, add the dosage to a half cup of freshly boiled water. The alcohol will evaporate off. Let it cool, and add honey or a splash of juice to make a yummy, allergy-busting drink!
Caution: Please do not use stinging nettle if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. And always talk to your healthcare practitioner if your symptoms hang on or get worse!
