Solgar Nettle Leaf Extract contains nettle leaf and is one of Solgar’s Botanical range products.
Solgar’s Botanicals are carefully selected from plants growing in the wild or cultivated on special botanical farms. The finest, freshest botanicals are chosen based on a strict set of criteria such as the geographical origin of the raw material, the authentication of the species and the qualities of the raw material. Botanicals have been used by mankind since early history as the beneficial effects of food beyond their nutrient function have been recognised since early times. They have been used through centuries to maintain health and a lot of today’s medicines were originally derived from botanicals. Botanicals are still the basis for Chinese medicine and are important constituents of many European natural remedies. As Hippocrates said, ‘Let thy food be thy medicine, thy medicine be thy food’.
Nettle leaf extract is derived from stinging nettle (Urtica dioica), a flowering plant growing all over the world, originating from Europe and Asia. It is best known for the stinging reaction that follows when skin comes into contact with the stinging hairs on its leaves and stems. For centuries this plant has been used medicinally, with most products made from the stems and leaves. Solgar Nettle Leaf Extract comes in a 1 vegetable capsule daily dosage, giving you all the healthy benefits of this stinging botanical.
