Oat Straw & Stinging Nettle Leaf Tea

I’m a BIG tea drinker. Not just matcha, all kinds of home made, loose leaf teas. It’s so important for your health and to help your body naturally detox itself. This tea in specific really covers the most important bases of helping your body stay balanced, and nourished. 🌱 @nomadicsonglines my angel friend, is the one who introduced me to this tea ✨

Here are some benefits:

• Urinary tract health. Nettle may help flush harmful bacteria from the urinary tract.

• Nettle has historically been used to treat pain and sore muscles, especially related to arthritis. The Arthritis Foundation suggests that nettle tea may also reduce the inflammation and pain association with osteoarthritis.

• Blood sugar management. Nettle has shown some promising effects on blood glucose levels. It may help the pancreas make or release more insulin, the hormone that lowers blood sugar.

• Nettle is high in plant chemicals called polyphenols. A review of the research on polyphenols suggests that these powerful compounds may play a role in the prevention and management of chronic diseases related to inflammation, such as diabetes, obesity, cancer, and heart disease

• There is evidence, that oat straw, also known as Avena sativa, can have a beneficial effect on mental health. Some of the mental health benefits of oat straw extract include its ability to treat depression and anxiety. • Cancer has no known cure, but it is preventable. Oats, for example, are a beta-glucan. Beta-glucans are immunomodulators and have shown anticancer properties.

Instructions
 

How to make;

  • Add water to the leaves.
  • Bring the water just to a simmer.
  • Turn off the stove and let sit for five minutes.
  • Pour the mixture through a small strainer.
  • Add a bit of honey, cinnamon, or stevia, if you like.

Notes

Start out by only having one cup of nettle tea to make sure you don’t have any reactions to it. **I also just add in a large jar or bowl. 1/2 cup of each. Fill with room temp water and let it sit over night. Strain it and put it into glass bottles in the fridge to drink during the day.
