Nettle leaf's purported anti-inflammatory effects have been repeatedly confirmed by modern research over the past ten years.
Nettle is particularly effective in treating allergic rhinitis, relieving nearly all the symptoms of itchy, watery eyes, sneezing and runny nose. It also has performed better than the prescription drug furosemide in reducing blood pressure, increasing urine output as a diuretic and increasing salt excretion. Nettle also seems to be effective in reducing pain and producing a sedative effect.
Nettle Leaf shows some promise in boosting immune system function and is an effective treatment for many skin conditions. Nettle leaf has also been used as a hair and scalp treatment for centuries, and again, those uses are being supported by research as well. Nettle leaf extract seems to promote hair regrowth and thicken hair, as well as reducing dandruff and scalp conditions when used as a rinse.
