Nettle Tea and BUN Levels

2014-12-30 13:43

Nettle Tea and BUN LevelsBUN (Blood Urea Nitrogen) levels elevates due to many factors such as liver disease, kidney disease, dehydration or congestive heart failure. Is nettle tea good for reducing high BUN levels?

It is lucky that nettle tea is good for people who want to reduce high blood urea nitrogen levels. Here is a general information about this traditional Chinese herb. Any questions, please email to or leave a message below.

How does nettle tea reduce BUN levels?

Urea nitrogen is the produced after protein breaks down. It forms in the liver and is discharged by kidneys as a kind of waste. Nettle tea help remove excess urea nitrogen by increasing urine formation in the kidneys. Therefore, nettle tea is used as a diuretic for decreasing high BUN levels.

Preparations and dosing

In general, patients can drink three to four cups per day but you should always drink additional water along with the tea. Nettle dry leaf is usually taken as 2 to 4 grams, 3 time daily.


Even though nettle tea is beneficial for reducing high BUN levels, but may occasionally cause side effects such as mild stomach upset and allergic reactions. Never allow an open wound to come in contact with nettle. Avoid nettle if you are pregnant because it may increase your risk of miscarriage.

Other natural ways to lower high BUN levels

Single Chinese herb have limited effect on treating kidney disease, and a holistic treatment is necessary. In that case, I recommend you to take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Cycle Therapy.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy: It is an external application used on Shenshu area with osmotic device. Bases on hundreds of traditional Chinese herbs, it shows great effects on improving kidney function.

Cycle Therapy: By smearing unguent on certain acupoints and “drawing circles” around these points, this therapy can draw out the toxins in the blood.

Both the two therapies are safe and effective for improving kidney function to speed up the filtration of creatinine and urea nitrogen. Almost 30 years of clinic practices is the evidence of the effectiveness. You can trust us! Welcome your consultation.
