Nettle Leaf (Urtica dioica) has been used as far back as the Bronze Age, 3000 BC, around the world. Native to northern Africa, North America, Asia, and Europe, the deciduous plant prefers regions with high rainfalls and nitrogen-rich soil.

Nettle is known for its high chlorophyll content and richness in vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, and K, as well as nutrients such as copper, manganese, iron, choline, magnesium, potassium, and calcium. The leaves contain a wide range of constituents, including flavonoids, phenolic compounds, organic acids, tannins, volatile compounds, and fatty acids, polysaccharides, isolectins, sterols, terpenes, and proteins.

Nettle has been used for use in history as an astringent, diuretic, antihistamine, analgesic, decongestant, kidney support, and expectorant, as well as offering nutritive benefits.
