Nettle Dry Extract

It is obtained from hydro alcohol extraction of nettle roots (Urtica dioica)

NettleWe actively cultivate Urtica dioica plants in our plantations in Bulgaria in order to produce high-quality nettle dry extract.

For all that it is rarely a friend to gardeners, the humble nettle has been used for its medical properties since the time of the Ancient Egyptians.

This means that it’s primarily companies in the health and medical industries who use as the bulk producer and manufacturer of the nettle dry extract they need.

Of course, this means that – like all of our products – our dried nettle extracts are produced to very high quality tolerances:

All ISO:9001, REACH, GMP and Organic standards are met. Plus, we have our own laboratory with which we test each batch.
