Stinging Nettles in Herbal Medicine

Stinging nettle is used for a variety of different purposes in herbal medicine. This plant appears to provide numerous effects. For instance, the leaves contain quercetin, a flavonoid that may help with allergies by inhibiting histamine release from certain cells in the body. The leaves also contain several other flavonoids, such as beta-sitosterol (which may help lower cholesterol and treat an enlarged prostate).
 
The plant also contains compounds that may have pain-relieving, anti-inflammatory analgesic, numbing, antiviral, and antibacterial effects. Because stinging nettle contains many different active components, it is likely that benefits of the herb are due to combination of several of the different components.
