Can I use nettle tea bags as I have no time to infuse etc … and can I drink this on a continuous basis –
What vitamins and minerals are in stinging nettle?
Thank you for your expertise and patience
You can use nettle tea bags but they will not give you any medicinal benefits, besides the benefit of consuming hot water. Making nourishing herbal infusions takes no more than ten minutes per night, much less time that a visit to the doctor. Make an investment of ten minutes per night to regain your health and vitality and your hair will grow back strong and healthy. Yes, you can drink nourishing herbal infusions on a continuous basis. Stinging nettle, if used as a full strength nourishing herbal infusion contains many minerals very important to your health and wellbeing.
In this article, https://www.susunweed.com/How_to_make_Infusions.htm you will find it takes Susun less than five minutes to make an infusion…simply pour the herb in the jar and fill with boiling water, let sit four hours, strain, and drink to your health.
Find detailed info on nutrients in nourishing herbal infusions:
Stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) builds energy, strengthens the adrenals, and is said to restore youthful flexibility to blood vessels. A cup of nettle infusion contains 500 milligrams of calcium plus generous amounts of bone-building magnesium, potassium, silicon, boron, and zinc. It is also an excellent source of vitamins A, D, E, and K. For flexible bones, a healthy heart, thick hair, beautiful skin, and lots of energy, make friends with sister stinging nettle. It may make you feel so good you'll jump up and exercise.
Oatstraw (Avena sativa) reduces high cholesterol, increases libido, and strengthens the nerves. A cup of oatstraw infusion contains more than 300 milligrams of calcium plus generous amounts of many other minerals. Its steroidal saponins nourish the pancreas and liver, improving digestion and stabilizing moods. Oatstraw is best known however for its ability to enhance libido and mellow the mood. Do be careful whom you share it with, or you may find yourself sowing some wild oats. In Auryuvedic medicine, oatstraw is considered the finest of all longevity tonics.
Red clover (Trifolium pratense) is better in every way than its cousin soy. It contains four phytoestrogens; soy has only one (isoflavone). Red clover infusion has ten times more phytoestrogens than soy "milk," fewer calories, more calcium, and no added sugars. Red clover is the world's leading anti-cancer herb; soy isoflavone encourages the growth of breast cancer cells in the lab. Red clover improves the memory; Japanese men who ate tofu twice a week doubled their risk of Alzheimer's disease. Soy beverage can contain up to 1000 times more aluminum than milk, according to Sally Fallon, lipid researcher and fat specialist. She believes that "the highly processed soy foods of today are perpetuating . . . nutrient deficiencies. . . ."
Comfrey (Symphytum) leaf is free of the compounds (PAs) found in the root that can damage the liver. I have used comfrey leaf infusion regularly for decades with no liver problems, ditto for the group of people at the Henry Doubleday Research Foundation who have eaten cooked comfrey leaves as a vegetable for four generations. Comfrey is also known as "knitbone," and no better ally for the woman with thin bones can be found. And, don't forget, comfrey contains special proteins used in the formation of short-term memory cells. Its soothing mucilage adds flexibility to joints, eyes, vagina, and lungs.
Thank you soo very much for your kind advice that will lead me back to “me” in good health and passion for life
Much love and blessings to you, Justine
