How do you juice nettles?

  • When it comes to juicing, nettles are treated the same as leafy greens. It works best in a single auger, twin-gear, or mechanical juicer.
  • Only collect young leaves for juicing. Make sure to harvest with scissors and gloves.
  • Wash the leaves at home and leave them soaked in water for two hours. You will get more juice from them.
  • Only put leaves in the juicer, not the stems. 
  • Nettle juice is similar in flavor to spinach juice. The taste is delicate, not too strong. It also mixes well with carrot juice.  And don't worry, it doesn't sting.
  • Nettle juice and nettle tea are equally effective as a health supplement.  
  • You can do a spring nettle cleanse using nettle juice. All it takes is a small shot - drunk either alone or mixed into other juices. Don't do it longer than ten days, as it is a powerful herb.
  • Nettle is effective an cleansing the blood. After a nettle cleanse, you will notice more energy, alleviation of eczema, acne and psoriasis. It also helps with rheumatism or digestive problems.
  • Nettle juice is not suitable for people with weakened kidneys.

# 1 Twin-gear juicers are the best juicers for leafy greens. They  are also easy to use, because teh twin gears pull in leafy greens without the need for a pusher. They also give the highest yield.
# 2 Single auger juicers do a great job with leafy greens. They do not have the same yield as twin-gears, but they are the most popular. This is due to their versatility, ease of use, and easy cleaning.
# 3 Mechanical juicers are generally good for greens. The quality of the juice is amazing, the yield is good. The only drawbacks are the physical effort needed to turn operate them, and the limited types of produce for which they are suited.
# 4 Centrifugal juicers aren't designed for leafy greens.  There will be little juice yield, and more of a "wet salad" result.
