Nettle Root (Powder)

Nettle root powder is the dried and ground roots and rhizomes of the stinging nettle plant. While the leaf has a flavor like spinach, the pale, grooved rootstock has a much milder taste and a slight mucilaginous quality. Nettle root powder is traditionally used in male care teas and tonics due to a high concentration of polyphenols, such as p-coumaric, caffeic, and ferulic acids. Nettle root powder is an easy-to-use form of the herb that may be added directly to foods, taken in capsules, or made into pastilles. The powder may also be incorporated into skin care products.
Also Known As nettle, stinging nettle, devil's claw, devil's plaything, burn nettle, burn hazel, burn weed
