Freeze-dried nettle capsules have been very effective at keeping my allergy symptoms in check. I am still adjusting to the best way to use it, however. The diuretic effect has decreased my quality of sleep, and I usually take a capsule around 5 or 6 p.m. (and one in the morning, too). I am going to experiment with taking the capsule earlier in the afternoon. But for allergies, yes, it works! No mo ... Show Full Comment
