Are stinging nettle supplements safe for pregnant or nursing women?

A Answers (1)

  • Nettle is not recommended in pregnant or breastfeeding women due to a lack of available scientific evidence. In theory, nettle may induce uterine stimulation.

    You should read product labels, and discuss all therapies with a qualified healthcare provider. Natural Standard information does not constitute medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
