Let’s Get to the Root of It
Meet nettle root, or as we like to call it, the multi-vitamin of super herbs. Best known for its pain-relieving properties, nettle root has been historically used for centuries to support the bodies’ overall well-being. In fact, this herbaceous shrub was first introduced to the scene back in medieval Europe to help rid the body of excess water and relieve achy joints. But wait, not so fast! We’d advise you wear some protective gloves next time you try roaming your garden for this powerful plant.
With heart-shaped leaves, yellow or pink flowers, and fine hairs, nettle root, or commonly referred to as stinging nettle, is known to release defensive chemicals that can irritate or sting the skin when touched. Although such exposure can be painful, studies suggest that ingesting this herb can actually lessen pain occurring inside the body (mind = blown).
Bring on the Benefits!
Apart from its ability to soothe achy joints and muscles, nettle root has also been shown to support the immune system, circulatory system, nervous system, digestive system, endocrine system, spleen, urinary tract, and respiratory tract. Now that’s what we call a SUPER herb! Packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, like calcium, iron, potassium, silica, vitamin A, vitamin K1, vitamin C, carotenoids, sterols, and flavonoids, this heroic herb contains all the arsenal it needs to promote immunity, relieve pain, and provide avid users with radiant hair, skin, and nails. With such a wide-array of benefits, Dr. Bader found it a no-brainer when deciding whether to incorporate this super herb into our SkinTē formulas. Why not invest in your health and super-herb yourself?!
