Known for their characteristic stinging hairs, which produce a painful rash, nettles were used by our ancestors in the Val d'Hérens to combat fatigue and stimulate the immune system. They are rich in minerals and trace elements: iron and magnesium in particular, but also calcium, phosphorus, potassium, manganese, selenium and zinc. Nettles also contain vitamins A, B, C and K. They have diuretic and draining properties, helping to combat joint pain (rheumatism), lumbago, sciatica and gout. They also have anti-infection qualities. These products have re-established nettles as the flavour of the day, without in any way detracting from their many virtues.

 

Nettle salt, 80g - CHF 18

 

Dried nettles, 50g - CHF 15

 

 

Suggestions for use

To improve your general state of health: sprinkle some dried nettle or nettle salt on all your meals every day.

To combat fatigue: a tablespoon of dried nettle leaves in a litre of hot water. Drink three to four cups of the infusion every day for 21 days. They are an excellent dietary supplement for people who are feeling "run down".
