Stinging Nettle

(Urtica dioica) In the fourth and fifth century BC, Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine, had already outlined sixty-one medicinal uses for nettle. It contains an abundance of chlorophyll, calcium, chromium, magnesium, zinc, and significant stores of iron, selenium, phosphorus, potassium, riboflavin, silica, thiamine, and Vitamins A, C and K. Stinging nettle can help prevent testosterone from being converted to DHT, which accumulates in hair follicles and is a primary cause of both male and female pattern baldness. Stinging nettle's richness of iron & silica will also combat hair loss and encourage hair growth.*
