Why eat nettles?
Nettles are one of the most powerful iron sources in the vegetable kingdom.
Great for anaemia, for during menstruation (to top up departing iron stocks) and as a general blood tonic. Whenever you feel run down, or tired, think nettles!
Eating nettles or drinking the tea can make your hair brighter, thicker and shinier; it may improve your skin - clearer and healthier, good for eczema and other skin conditions. Nettle tea is also a tonic for house or garden plants!
