– Five health benefits of
stinging nettle, of nettle leaves. I’m so excited to share this
knowledge with you today, ’cause this is my favorite healing plant. I’m gonna dive right into why these powerhouses of nutrients are so beneficial for your health. My name is Peggy Schirmer
from, welcome to Gut Feelings,
the channel to support all the gut feelers out there to become their own health experts,
to help heal their body so they have all the energy to bring their gifts into the world. And today we’re gonna talk
about the five benefits of the nettle leaves,
what they can do for you, and why they are so awesome. Did you know that these
beautiful leaves here that are often stinging us if we don’t know how to touch them, or if they are not
wilting like these ones, they are powerhouses of nutrients. For example, they contain
ample amounts of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is the blood of the plants. You see dark green leaves
you think about vitamin K, which they have ample
amounts from and chlorophyll. Apart from that, stinging nettles contain a high amount of minerals, for example, Iron, Calcium, Zinc,
Chromium and Magnesium. And also vitamins, they
are not short in vitamins. Of course vitamin K,
because of the dark green, and vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D. Yeah, if you think about
vitamin D deficiency, a lot of people struggle
with that, and vitamin E. This nutrient density is also the reason why they are health benefit number one, such strong immune boosters. They do everything for your body. They make your body stronger, just like if you look at the signature of the stinging nettle, it’s kind of, it’s a Mars signature. It’s very strong, it’s
very solid, very grounded. This is what nettle does
for your immune system. And because it’s such a immune booster, it’s also called the fatigue killer, yeah, it helps boost your energy, and dispels any sluggishness. Just try it out, you’re
gonna be surprised. Health benefit number
two of stinging nettles, and especially stinging nettle leaves, the positive impact it has
on our endocrine system. nettles, and this is a
major-major health benefit for us, helps us to support and to balance our hormonal system. Here especially our pancreas,
think about diabetes, because it helps there
to lower the blood sugar. And also think about you thyroid. A lot of women, especially, have problems with their thyroid, either
it’s under productive, or over productive, here
stinging nettle can be a great support to help rebalancing that, also because it has so
many helpful nutrients, and as we’re gonna find out in health benefit number three right now, it’s a major detoxer for your body. Detoxing your body will
give you more energy, it will help you heal your liver cells. These guys basically what they do, they don’t only help
to cleanse your blood, but what they also do is
they kill, literally kill the bacteria, the viruses,
the other pathogens, that are still in your system, if you suffer from
urinary tract infections, from bladder and kidney stones, stinging nettle can
break these stones down, so you don’t have any
problems with that anymore. Health benefits of stinging
nettle, number four, and this was a major one for me, is that it helps with
allergies, and with any kinds of respiratory tract
infections and ailments. So, if you suffer from hay
fever, you have a pollen allergy, you have ragweed allergy,
you’re allergic to cat hair or mold, or you’re just
sensitive to certain foods, think about using nettles
in your daily diet. I’ve recorded a separate video of how to use stinging nettles, I give you three ways
how to best use them. You right now important to know is that stinging nettles are acting like a natural antihistamine. So, they’re basically,
they stabilize the cells that release histamine into the tissue, and that’s what makes them
also anti-inflammatory. This is a major-major
help for if you suffer from asthma, if you have chronic coughing, if you have sinus infections. stinging nettle helps you
to decrease the swelling in your nose and also in your lungs. Helps to relax your body, and
stabilizes your whole system. And last but not least,
health benefit number five, this is an important one for this channel, it’s all about your digestive health, and stinging nettle won
the first price here. It helps with any kinds
of digestive issues. It helps to stabilize your
digestion, make it stronger, again, think about the
signature of a nettle. It’s very strong, it’s
very solid, grounded. So, if you suffer from nausea, if you have any kinds of
inflammatory conditions, leaky gut, colitis,
irritable bowel syndrome, cea bowel, it helps to
kills the pathogens as well, acid reflux, even has some
anti-cancer properties, if you suffer from colon cancer. So, make sure to try out this herb, and just get it, yeah,
it’s growing everywhere. I’ve just made a video of
how to harvest nettles. You can find them very likely wherever you live, in the world, just around your corner, and if not you can always order
them over the internet. I’m gonna put you a link
there for nettle leave powder which you can put in your smoothies. And for nettle tea, lose nettle tea, that you can use as a tea, which will help your
body stabilize it self, get enough nutrients and minerals, and vitamins in there, and really boost and speed up your healing process. These were the five health benefits, just to recap, number one, nettles help to boost your immune
system, fight off fatigue and energize you. Second, nettle leaves benefit you from supporting your hormonal system, especially your thyroid and your pancreas. Health benefit number three, nettle leave benefits you
by detoxing your body, supporting your liver
to flush out the toxins, and even are able to kill off bacteria and viruses and other pathogens that you have already in your system. Number four nettles help with allergies and with any kinds of
respiratory tract ailments, asthma, sinus infection, chronic coughing, COPD lung diseases. And last but not least
health benefit number five, nettles help you boost
your digestive health, they make you digestion stronger, and help you heal from all
kinds of digestive issues. Thank you so much for watching this video. Check out if it’s summer
