2. Immunity Booster
After a long day of work, you’re much more susceptible to sickness and diseases. When you wake up the next morning with the sniffles or a nasty cough, you’ll often shrug it off while drinking some aspirin or whatever over-the-counter drug. Indeed, many people ward the everyday cold or the occasional flu with synthetic medication, but we all know how medicine like that can cause other harmful side effects in the body.
Stinging nettle offers a natural alternative to common disease-fighting medicine. Instead of addressing the sickness, stinging nettle activates and strengthens the lymph system to boost your immunity. Stinging nettle also contains several immune-boosting compounds, like vitamins A and C. These antioxidants protect immune cells against damage that can hamper the immune system. Instead of fighting the sickness, it defends the body from being susceptible to these diseases in the first place.
What can I say, I’d rather not get sick than nurse a cold while working. Prevention is always better than cure!
