Nettles. Spiteful stingers which lurk in the undergrowth to ruin summer rambles or incredible healthy resource to be loved and respected? Well until recently I would have been firmly in camp one as we have nettles growing in abundance around our English village.
But then I learned about some of the health properties experts claim nettles can offer, and tried a refreshing tasty way to imbibe this amazing plant without the sting.
Containing omega-3, essential amino acids, vitamins, and fibre, nettle apparently has the ability to help lower blood sugar levels, aid in lowering blood pressure, help fight the symptoms of hay fever, and boost your immune system.
Immunity from UK-based Nasslor Health-drinks Ltd is the first detox health drink to harness the healing and immunity-boosting benefits of nettle and make it available in a ready-to-drink can.
