Nettle Root Tincture – A Potent Tonic for Prostate and Hormone Health*
“The Yin that Nourishes the Yang”
We’re proud to offer this new nettle root tincture, wildcrafted from the coast of Oregon and Washington, as you can see below. This high quality tincture is made in the USA and spagyrically prepared for maximized holistic potency.
Nettle (Urtica dioica) has long had a reputation for being a great herb for all kinds of issues. While the leaves and seeds are also used, it is the root that is most well known for promoting male health.*
Nettle Root Tincture for Prostate Health*
Nettle root is first and foremost known for its amazing ability to promote Healthy Prostate Function.*
Considering that men over 50 years of age have a 50% chance of having BPH, and men over 80 have a 90% chance, nettle root is a much needed ally in our modern day life.
Very often nettle root can help restore proper functioning, while having far less side effects than the drugs, like finasteride, typically handed out for this condition.*
There are at least four other double-blind clinical trials which confirm this efficacy.* [2-6]
Some of these effects come from the hormonal action as described below, and others may be independent from it. For instance, Urtica dioica agglutinin (UDA) is a lectin found primarily in the stinging nettle root. UDA antagonizes the epidermal growth factor receptor which has a role in BPH.*
UDA also has action on the immune system, stimulating T-lymphocytes and having anti-viral activity.*[8-10]
Nettle Root Tincture for Hormone Health*
All of the attention gets put on androgens. While these are important hormones, it is crucial to recognize that they are just one of many hormones, and there are many things that can happen to it.
As Jeff, the creator of this tincture, puts it, “nettle root is the Yin that nourishes Yang.” If you understand this in light of the hormones, it shows why nettle root can be an important balancing factor when used with more yang herbs like pine pollen tincture and tongkat ali.
Nettle Root for Women’s Hormone Health*
While it has a strong reputation as a male herb, that doesn’t mean that women can’t benefit from it as well. Because of its actions on things like aromatization and SHBG, nettle root can also support female hormone health too.*
Though this is only beginning to be scientifically studied, many herbalists are using nettle root to help women with hyperandrogenism and PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome).*
Wildcrafted and Spagyrically Prepared Nettle Root Tincture
This tincture is brought to you by the same people that provide our Ashwagandha Tincture. If you’ve tried that, then you know how high quality it is! All pictures on this page come from the actual harvest and tincturing process of the batch we have available.
These roots are wildcrafted from pristine areas from the coast range of Oregon and Washington. Then they are tinctured in 40% organic cane alcohol and distilled water.
After being pressed the roots are burned and ground down, the soluble minerals separated out from the insoluble and added back into the tincture. This spagyric process helps to strengthen the tincture by providing back the natural mineral matrix. In alchemical terms, this is putting the salt (body), back into the sulphur and mercury (soul and spirit). Separation and unification. If you don’t know what any of that means don’t worry. It just means that this nettle root tincture is more potent in a holistic way than pretty much anything else out in the market.
Just nettle root, water and organic cane alcohol, nothing else.
It is important to note that this is a whole root extract. It is not standardized. While there is are some nettle root products that are standardized to their scopoletin content, this is just of the many active constituents of this amazing plant.
How to take Nettle Root Tincture
The recommended dose is 30 drops (a dropperful) twice per day. The best way to do this is to squirt the dropper into your mouth and hold it under your tongue for about 30 seconds.
The tincture can also be added to water, tea, or other drinks. However, as mentioned above, sublingually, meaning under the tongue, is the preferred method.
Because of the ease of use, our nettle root tincture may be preferred by many over the nettle root powder. But because of the different growing and extraction methods each may have slightly different benefits. Many people will find even better results by combining the two, and also with other male reproductive supporting herbs like pine pollen and tongkat ali.
