  • Urticaceae
  • Nettle, ( Urtica dioica , Urticaceae) was chosen as the object of this study because it is a widespread plant in R. Macedonia, edible, used in medicinal purposes, and also frequently used as a model plant in different studies [ 13 - 15 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • Salix
  • The aim of this study was to characterize the anti-inflammatory mode of action of botanical extracts from rosehip (Rosa canina), willow bark (Salix alba), and nettle leaf (Urtica dioica) in an in vitro model of primary canine articular chondrocytes. (uni-muenchen.de)
  • hairs
  • The Latin root of Urtica is uro, meaning "I burn," indicative of the small stings caused by the little hairs on the leaves of this plant that burn when contact is made with the skin. (prohealth.com)
  • vegetable
  • Despite U. dioica being recognized as an edible and highly nutritious vegetable, research attention has focused more on its value as a source of alternative medicine and fiber. (hindawi.com)
  • This information is essential because the capacity of fresh nettle to irritate bare skin may discourage potential consumers and postharvest processing methods that make it safe to handle, while maintaining nutritive value will benefit the development of U. dioica as a specialty vegetable.

  • fiber
  • A recent report from ongoing work in Italy confirms the potential of U. dioica as a sustainable source of textile fiber [ 7 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • study
  • The aim of the study was to determine the antidiabetic effects of aqueous extracts of U. dioica in alloxan induced mice and the safety of U. dioica on mice models. (omicsonline.org)
  • In conclusion, this study confirmed that U. dioica at a dose of 50 mg/kg, 100 mg/kg, 200 mg/kg and 300 mg/kg body weights possessed anti-diabetic activity. (omicsonline.org)
  • management
  • Urtica dioica has traditionally been used in the management of cardiovascular disorders especially hypertension. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Identification of NO-mediated vasorelaxation and calcium channel blocking effects explain the antihypertensive potential of U. dioica and provide a potential pharmacological base to its medicinal use in the management of hypertension. (biomedcentral.com)
