While more research is still needed, Stinging Nettle is also said to stimulate hair growth, reduce blood sugar and improve insulin resistance in diabetics, and provide relief from water retention – all symptoms of hormone imbalances. Furthermore, Stinging Nettle contains ingredients such as serotonin and acetylcholine, which offset the hard effects of stress on the adrenals. It’s also a rich source of minerals like zinc, magnesium, potassium, and iron, which means a long steeping process is necessary to pull out all the good stuff.

Here is how to make the drink:
1. Place 1/2 cup of dried/fresh nettle leaves in a container (with cover)
2. Pour one litre of boiled water into it and cover it tightly to allow up to 10 hours of infusing.
3. Consume the whole of one litre of the infused drink per day. (Make more if you want)

Warning: Pregnant women are refrained to consume this drink as it has been known to stimulate uterine contractions.
