The stinging nettle uses both physical and chemical defenses to keep predators from munching on it’s precious leaves, but once the stinging hairs are destroyed with pulverization or boiling water, only goodness remains. These leaves have been shown to help reduce inflammation, reduce histamine production, acts as a diuretic, may reduce blood pressure and blood sugar, detoxify and speed healing overall. Of course, all this being said- this will still be a warm, comforting and nourishing soup if you do not have nettles in season and swap the leaves for another leafy green.
