Stinging Nettle Supplement Information

Stinging nettle is a type of plant that is sometimes used medicinally. Though mainly taken for allergies, stinging nettle supplements are also used to treat high cholesterol, an enlarged prostate, and several other conditions.
 
Stinging nettle is available without a prescription. However, this does not mean it is without risks. For example, you may be more likely than others to experience problems with these supplements if you have any of the following conditions:
 
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney disease, such as kidney failure (renal failure)
  • Any chronic or severe medical condition.
 
If you have any of these conditions, make sure your healthcare provider has this information before you start taking stinging nettle.
