This may sound completely batty - no, I’ve not been on the Christmas brandy - but I do seem to find nettle tea very beneficial for soothing my sensitive bladder.
I had been rummaging on the Internet and found all sorts of information on NF-kappa B, this being a protein within cells which is involved in DNA transcription which seems to be associated with MS pathology.
It turns out that nettle extracts potently inhibit NF-kappa B:
Perhaps I just need something to believe in, but I’m drinking plenty of nettle tea for the apparent bladder benefits alone anyway. Green tea too - I’ve heard good things about its anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties.
Disclaimer: I am not a medical person and some may consider me eccentric. I don’t know whether nettle tea is healthy and palatable for everyone.
Happy festive season everyone.
