I have been holding my own controlled experiment. Another "discover-ment" of sorts.
Well, it turns out that it is a natural anti-inflammatory. Read about it here. (I dont' think this is the link my hubby found...)
So I've been taking it before bed and for whatever reason, I sleep like a log now. IF I remember to take it. That's the "controlled" part. When I take it, I sleep great. When I don't, I wake up groggy, neck hurts, hands stiff and not feeling rested.
Not. At. All.
My MIL has gone off all her pain meds for arthritis and my mom had tried it, but hasn't seen any earth shattering results.
I'm going to have to plant this stuff myself because I know it makes a major difference in my aging joints.
Anyway, just passing along the word about Nettle because I like to share. It may or may not work for you, but it's been a godsend for me.
Thanks hubby for discovering it. :)
