My Weight Control Tea

How much do you know about nettle?  Did you know that besides having a detoxifying effect, nettle can also help with weight control and hair growth?  Look online in a search and discover recipes and reasons why nettle is good for more than you think.  Last month, I started making a nettle and green tea concoction in an effort to grow my hair and make it stronger from the inside.  A side effect that I didn’t expect was that my clothes started to fit a little looser, even though I’ve been slacking off on the exercise routines.  Here’s a vid of MY PERSONAL recipe.  I add a dash of cinnamon to each cup I drink for an extra punch of calorie burn.

Word of note:  Not everyone can try everything.  If you feel that you may be or are sensitive to nettle, then by all means leave it alone.  That goes for anything you consider taking. The green tea and adding cinnamon also provide good benefit for controlling your weight.  Look for some links after the video.

    This looks interesting. How much nettle, green tea, water and ice do you use? How much does this make? I already have green tea bags and I have Nettle leaf powder? Is nettle leaf powder okay?


    • I use about 5 green tea bags, and about a teaspoon and a half of nettle. 50% water and enough ice to make sure not to break the container. I’m not sure how much the container I used holds, but a container like you would use to make lemonade would work. I would think that nettle leaf powder would be alright. =) HTH

    Thank you. Do you store in the fridge? Oh if you are sensitive to nettle what herb other could you use? About how many glasses of this did you drink a day?


  3. Yes, I store it in the fridge, and drink 3 cups of it a day. Cinnamon works well, too if you have a nettle sensitivity.
