Nettles have been found to contain antihistamines which are a critical defense against the body’s natural response to pollen and other allergens. Additionally, their high nutritional value is part of what has made them such a popular food source—Nettles are a great source of iron, calcium, Vitamin C, folic acid, potassium, manganese, and carotenoids. Dried Nettle leaves are also sometimes used in teas for expectant or nursing mothers.
