Herbal tea can be calming and soothing, but one herbal tea really stands out as a protectant during these CoVid times.
Stinging nettle tea, which is inexpensive and easy to make, is loaded with minerals and nutrients. It also contains plant compounds that block virus docking in the lungs, reduce inflammation and interfere with the whole series of bad biochemical events in viral infection called “the cytokine storm”.
I am making a strong infusion of stinging nettle daily. Here’s how to do it:
Take 1 cup dried stinging nettle and pour over 1 liter of boiled water. Steep for at least 2 hours and strain. Take 2 cups daily. You can add mint, ginger or lemon for a flavour boost.
