Studies related to Inflammation and Stinging Nettle

Cytokine Secretion In Whole Blood Of Healthy Subjects Following Oral Administration Of Urtica Dioica L. Plant Extract

Effect Decrease
Trial Design Cohort
Trial Length 2-4 Weeks
Number of Subjects 20
Sex Both Genders
Age Range 18-29, 30-44
Notes for this study:
Oral ingestion of Stinging Nettle was able to reduce the amount of TNF-a (a pro-inflammatory biomarker and cytokine) released in response to lipopolysacchrade (LPS).

A release of IL-6 was seen when LPS was not present, but did not occur with LPS present and thus was not overly inflammatory.
