Nettle (also known as Stinging Nettle) has been used for centuries worldwide to treat allergy and respiratory symptoms such as asthma, hay fever, hives, and other allergic dermatitis. It helps to clear congestion in the nose and chest and is also used today to help treat coughing and other bronchial symptoms. Nettle has also been used for joint ailments and urinary health symptoms. Studies show that stinging nettle's anti-inflammatory power assists with joint pain including rheumatoid arthritis.
