Nettle Seed for Weight Loss?
Answered by: Susan Eagles
Question from: Name not given
Posted on: March 13, 2002

I have heard that Nettle seeds are good for weight loss. I have Systemic Lupus and would like to know if there are any contradictions with this herb.

I am taking Sukfasalazine, Plaquenil, Synthroid, Zoloft, Acifex, and folic acid at the present time. I also use Bentyl and Darvacette.

Nettle seed is nourishing to the kidney, and often used in prostate cancer. I don’t know of its use in weight loss. I have heard of no contraindications for nettle seed.
