Strengthen Your Mettle With Some Nettle

Part of this post is taken from Solle Naturals Facebook page.

When I read the Facebook post, I had to go look up mettle. I’ve heard the word before, but was really surprised with what it meant.  After reading, I thought, “Wow!” I love having an herb in my life that is strengthening me in this way! This was always included in my herbal pregnancy and breastfeeding tea, but I had forgotten how many great benefits it has.

According to Oxford dictionary:

“a person’s ability to cope well with difficulties or to face a demanding situation in a spirited and resilient way:”The team showed their true mettle in the second half.”

Synonyms:
spirit, fortitude, strength of character, moral fiber, steel, determination, resolve, resolution, backbone, grit, courage, courageousness, bravery, valor, fearlessness, daring, bravery, guts, spunk, balls, caliber, character, disposition, nature, temperament, personality, makeup, stamp”

Post from Solle Naturals

“Nettle is just one of the herbal ingredients in Solle Vital, Solle’s one-of-a-kind foundational product, but just take a look at the list of health benefits you can get from this one ingredient, as compiled by herbwisdom.com.

“Nettle has been used for centuries to treat allergy symptoms, particularly hayfever which is the most common allergy problem. It contains biologically active compounds that reduce inflammation. Dr. Andrew Wiel M.D. author of Natural Health/ Natural Medicine says he knows of nothing more effective than nettle for allergy relief. And his statement is backed up by studies at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon.

Decongestants, antihistamines, allergy shots and even prescription medications such as Allegra and Claritin treat only the symptoms of allergies and tend to lose effectiveness over a period of time. They can also cause drowsiness, dry sinuses, insomnia and high blood pressure. Nettle has none of these side effects. It can be used on a regular basis and has an impressive number of other benefits most notably as a treatment for prostate enlargement.

Nettle has been studied extensively and has shown promise in treating Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, asthma, bladder infections, bronchitis, bursitis, gingivitis, gout, hives, kidney stones, laryngitis, multiple sclerosis, PMS, prostate enlargement, sciatica, and tendinitis! Externally it has been used to improve the appearance of the hair, and is said to be a remedy against oily hair and dandruff.

In Germany today stinging nettle is sold as an herbal drug for prostate diseases and as a diuretic. It is a common ingredient in other herbal drugs produced in Germany for rheumatic complaints and inflammatory conditions (especially for the lower urinary tract and prostate). In the United States many remarkable healing properties are attributed to nettle and the leaf is utilized for different problems than the root. The leaf is used here as a diuretic, for arthritis, prostatitis, rheumatism, rheumatoid arthritis, high blood pressure and allergic rhinitis.

The root is recommended as a diuretic, for relief of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and other prostate problems, and as a natural remedy to treat or prevent baldness

An infusion of the plant is very valuable in stemming internal bleeding. It is also used to treat anaemia, excessive menstruation, hemorrhoids, arthritis, rheumatism and skin complaints, especially eczema. Externally, the plant is used to treat skin complaints, arthritic pain, gout, sciatica, neuralgia, hemorrhoids and hair problems.”

Wow! And just think, nettle is just one ingredient in just one of 3 herbal blends found in Solle Vital. No wonder so many people swear by Solle Vital everyday to protect their core, enliven their body and energize their mood. “


I love knowing this information. In the coming posts, I will try to touch on some of the other ingredients in Vital.

Wow, I was up at 4 a.m. coughing and asked the Lord to lead me to some relief. My doctor says I’m a puzzle. I’m going to try some nettle!
