The benefits of eating nettle – yes, you heard that right!

By Roy Lamb, Nasslor Health Drinks.

The humble stinging nettle (Urtica Dioica to give it its scientific name) has long had a place in culture and herbal medicine, first being mentioned by Aesop in his Fables for Children in around 560 BC. While native to Europe, it is found across the world and is often seen as a weed.

So you may be surprised to hear that you can eat nettle in many different ways. Not only is it highly nutritious, it’s also free, which is a bonus for any student watching their pennies!
