Nettle is a perennial herb that has been used since ancient times as a source of food, fiber and medicine. Its genus name, Urtica, is derived from the Latin verb urere, meaning “to burn,” a reference to the plant’s stinging hairs. Nettle has been well-documented and recognized for its many health benefits including kidney and urinary tract support as well as upper respiratory wellness.
