|Stinging Nettles Freeze-Dried|
Herbal Sinus Support

research on these constituents shows partial inhibitory effects on the biosynthesis
of arachidonic acid and leukotrienes.
Supplement Facts for 420 mg
Traditional Use of Nettles
Stinging nettle (Urtica diocia) has been a staple of herbal practitioners for
centuries. At one time nettles were among the most commonly eaten late winter
or early spring greens, due to their high content of vitamins, minerals and
amino acids. They are also a rich source of flavonoids and chlorophyll.
Nettles have traditionally been used as a tonic and for respiratory support.
According to the noted 16th century herbalist Nicholas Culpeper, "when
juiced, the [nettle] leaves are used to open the lungs." Maude Grieves,
the author of A Modern Herbal - one of the most popular sources among herbalists
- reported on the traditional practice of inhaling the smoke of burning nettle
for respiratory support.
Freeze Drying Stinging Nettles Preserves Active Constituents
Nettles contain a wide array of constituents that are generally lost in the
typical drying process. The primary active components of freeze-dried nettle
leaf are concentrated in the fresh stinging hairs, and include histamine, serotonin
(5-hydroxytryptamine) and acetylcholine. Freezedrying preserves these essential
elements to provide the full spectrum of constituents necessary for use as a
respiratory support herb.
In one double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 98 individuals, freeze-dried
nettle was found to be moderately or highly effective by a majority of participants
for addressing seasonal discomfort. Modern in vitro research on freezedried
nettles has shown that it partially inhibits the body's production of arachidonic
acid and leukotrienes. This function is an extremely important aspect of freeze-dried
nettle's support for the respiratory system, and may be lost in products that
are not freeze-dried.
