Description

Stinging nettle contains large amounts of essential minerals and nutrients, a lot of vitamin E and enzymes, iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, vitamin A, vitamin C and a variety of proteins. The content in proteins is even larger than in soy!

Stinging nettle has to be dried or cooked before use so that they don’t sting anymore.

Vitamin C and iron encourages the building of red blood cells hence this herb can be very helpful in fighting anemia.

Vitamin E and enzymes act detoxing, encourage bowel movement, stomach and gut action, liver, pancreas and gall.

A detox course with stinging nettle over 4-8 weeks feeding 30-50g of the dried herb to the horse with the feed (or brewing a tea with it that is added to the feed) shows great results in regards to coat, mane and tail of horses and is a great way to help with eczema and other skin conditions. Improvement should show within a short period of time and dull coats become healthier and shinier.

Veterinary research has also shown that stinging nettle can help in preventing issues like laminitis, founder, arthritis and rheumatism.

For horses that won’t eat feed with added stinging nettle there is a way to benefit from external use: Put 300g dried stinging nettle into 1L of water, bring to boil and let simmer for 10 minutes, drain through a sieve. Once cooled apply careful on the horse’s coat
