Alphabet crazy ~ Nettle – a burning but incredibly medicinal plant

From a young age, we have known that nettles are an extremely useful form of the plant, which greatly contributes to better health and well-being. Older people most often mention it in connection with rheumatism. Its usefulness knows no boundaries. This type of plant is generally considered to contain a large amount of vitamin C, a lot of calcium, iron, and it also contains minerals that are hardly found elsewhere.  Modern science has discovered that nettles also contain the pigment quercetin. This flavonoid is a powerful antioxidant and antihistamine that reduces severe inflammation. The plants are harvested in May and June before flowering. The leaves are used fresh or dried for tea. The roots can be used fresh or dried and ground.
