Nettle leaf has been used in herbal remedies or solely as a single remedy for a long time – and there seems to be a lot of information on hair growth and nettle leaf extract correlation – but very few websites actually talk about how it actually works; infact, no website we have seen even referred to why it helps, other than possible DHT blocking.
Yes, there is a lot of evidence stating it blocks DHT, or helps reduce it and create healthy levels of hormones in the body, but new studies are now suggesting that it does this differently than previously thought.
It seems that, when Nettle leaf extract is consumed regularly, it helps cleanse and detoxify the Liver, and then, Kidneys over time.
This is significant – as we already know that the Liver is in charge of cleaning the body from toxins; this means from toxins we eat, but also toxins we create internally, such as excess hormones which need to be removed and no longer required. (Please note, definition of a toxin is, anything that the body is no longer able to handle, generally anything in excess).
We already discussed how detox is important for youthful looks and thicker hair in our previous article here but we did not talk about to what extent it is, and how to actually detox properly; and the answer is, nettle leaf extract (in liquid form).
How do you take Nettle leaf extract?
This can be taken 2 teaspoons everyday, diluted in warm water (to evaporate the ethanol). This will work over a longer period of time, but people have seen results within days of taking it in their mood and elevated levels of energy (due to detox, allowing higher capacity of the liver to function).
