"This is a very pure nature product. I read a lot about the working of stinging nettle. In the raw-food diets they recommend this very often because it is a kind of green food. I used it for itching, redness and irritation skin problems. It helps me a lot. Every morning i take 2 caps. My skin calms down and also clean my colon. Buy this in bulk."
