Nettle is an annual herb that is distantly related to the rose. The herb has a long and varied history of use. For instance, it is one of the ingredients in the old English formula for Nine Herbs Charm, the 10th century answer to venomous snakebite.

It has also been a food crop for centuries, and is still consumed as a steamed or puréed vegetable. Powdered dried nettle leaf adds a spinach-like flavor to foods, such as stews, soups, and egg, cheese and rice dishes.

Nettle, also called stinging nettle, is a perennial herb with a natural range that includes North America, Europe, Asia and North Africa. Although the herb can easily become an invasive weed and has a reputation for delivering a “sting” when brushed against, its chemical composition makes it a wonderful companion plant and natural fertilizer due to its nitrogen content.

The herb is also a nutritional ally for people. Nettle is abundant in fiber, protein, calcium, iron, magnesium and vitamins A and K. The herb also contains soy isoflavones that, like the prescription medication finasteride, inhibit 5 alpha-reductase type 2, an enzyme that contributes to male pattern balding.
