Stinging nettle root, like saw palmetto, has been used for centuries to help men with urinary complaints. With age, many men have increasing difficulties with urination due to a condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH, which is an enlarged prostate gland. BPH can lead to urinary frequency, urgency, weak flow, incomplete voiding and waking many times during the night to urinate. Stinging nettle root offers relief for these all too common complaints.
Ingredients: Each ml contains 250 mg of organically grown stinging nettle root (Urtica dioica). It is a 1:4 root extract in a non-medicinal base of 40% gluten-free grain alcohol and purified water.
Recommended Use: Nettle root is used in Herbal Medicine to help reduce difficulty in urination associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia.
Directions: For best results, take nettle root 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 boiled water. The alcohol will evaporate off. Let it cool, and add honey or a splash of juice to make a yummy remedy for urinary difficulties!
Caution: Do not use nettle if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. And always talk to your healthcare practitioner if your symptoms hang on or get worse!
