Nettle is a rich source of iron and vitamin C, both of which actively promote an efficient circulatory system. An effective circulatory system is vital for the cleansing of the body, removal of waste products, expulsion of toxins and nutrient support of the muscles and bones. Nettle also contains sodium, chlorophyll, protein and dietary fibre. It is ideal for use as a spring tonic and general blood cleanser. It is a good conditioner and encourages ‘dappling’ on a horse’s coat. It acts as an astringent and helps support the lymphatic system. Nettle also contains manganese, potassium, sulphur and vitamin A. A wash can be made from nettle that can be used as a rinse for manes and tails.
