Behold the humble Stinging Nettle (Urtica Dioica):

The common stinging nettles within the UK are in an abundant and are a forgotten free food source, with amazing health benefits.

Not only do they contain up to 25% protein (one of the highest protein content for a leaf vegetation), they are a natural blood cleanser.

They are also jam packed full of essential Vitamins & minerals including:

  • Vitamin A 

  • Vitamin B2 

  • Vitamin C 

  • Vitamin K 

  • Iron 

  • Potassium 

  • Calcium

  • Manganese. 

They are known to Help & Prevent the symptoms of:

  • Anaemia

  • Asthma & C O P D (See Amazing Study info below)

  • Acne & spots

  • Respiratory & Urinary Infections

  • Rheumatism & Arthritis 

  • Hay fever 

  • Colds & Flu

  • Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH)

The best part to pick is the growing tips (top 6 leaves), and are best picked from March to May (before they go to flower), and a pair of rubber gloves will prevent you getting stung. Once picked, just put in a cullender ​and pour boiling water over them, this will remove the sting and irritations leaving them ready to eat (season with a little salt & pepper and drizzle olive oil over makes them very palatable with a similar taste/texture to spinach).
