Stinging nettles are a potent herb with a long history of use. Nettle is onne of natures bestÂ nutraceuticals, containing protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, beta-carotene, along with vitamins A,C, D, and B complex, all in a form that is easy for the body to use.
Stinging nettle shows up in many current testosterone boosters. Several studies show that the herb is useful for preventing prostate gland enlargement. It binds sex-hormone-binding globulin, or SHBG, which ties up testosterone in the blood. Lowering SHBG would have the effect of increasing free, or active, testosterone. When bound to SHBG, testosterone is inactive. On the other hand, more free testosterone also means a greater chance of its encountering the ubiquitous aromatase enzyme. When that happens, testosterone converts into estrogen.
Stinging nettle helps to keep testosterone circulating freely and keep you feelingÂ sexually vital, and may even help with male pattern baldness!Â Stinging nettle also acts as a tonic to theÂ female systemÂ making it a herb that couples can share.
Nettle has many other benefits such as detoxification and reduced body inflammation. You can buy it in supplement form, or in tea form. We sell cleansing nettle teas here at Shape Wellness Center Atlanta!
