Just like dandelion root, this little shrub is an incredible source of health benefits for women in particular.  How to incorporate it into your diet?  Stinging nettle tea!  And it's greatest positive?  It works wonders in helping anemia (a condition that plagues many, many ladies out there).  Not only is this weed rich in iron, but it directly increases your blood's ability to absorb iron which helps to reduce the fatigue that so often accompanies anemia.  Plus, it is high in chlorophyll, folic acid, and vitamin K.  All the vitamin K specifically aids clotting which can be helpful if you experience heavy periods.  Not to mention it offers mild pain relief when you are down with those gosh darn lady cramps!  As far as detoxification goes, a cup of nettle tea increases urine production, ridding the body of toxic buildup and promoting skin health, too.

Now, you might be wondering about the "stinging" part.  As the name suggests, being pricked by nettle does indeed sting.  Fortunately, there are a few ways to stop this.  First, you can buy ready to go nettle tea here!  Which is the option we are going to go for.  Second, if you decide to scour the hillsides for a live plant yourself, the remedy to the sting is super close.  Simply break open the stem (being sure to avoid further pricks) and pour the liquid antidote inside over your stings.  That sounds a bit magical to us...
