Stinging nettle root monograph.

The American Herbal Pharmacopoeia (AHP) has released its quality control standards and therapeutic compendium for stinging nettle root (Urtica dioica L.) Nettles roots have historically been used for urinary complaints. The AHP Therapeutic Compendium provides a critical review of the traditional and scientific data. Each monograph establishes national standards for assuring authenticity, purity and quality control of a botanical. Accompanying the standards is the AHP Therapeutic Compendium, which provides a complete and critical review of the pharmacological and safety data currently available, including information on pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, actions, medical indications, historical and modern and traditional use, structure and function claims, dosages, interactions, side effects, contraindications, toxicology and more.
