We are lucky that nettles are available almost year round from our local farmers market. At ah juice we include this herb in the juices regularly. With gloves on, we gently feed the leaves and stems into the juicer (the plant has tiny barbs which can sting). We don’t mind the extra care required because it is such a super herb, considered a treatment for almost everything that ails you.
- It can relieve the pain from arthritis, gout & fibromyalgia because it is a diuretic and releases uric acid from the joints.
- It can help treat allergies like hay fever, asthma and hives.
