While every kind of tea offers up a warm cuppa comfort, not every single one is packed with as many benefits as nettle leaf tea  — an unsung, and under-brewed hero of the tea world. Nettle leaf tea comes from the stinging nettle plant; a perennial flowering plant that tastes amazing in tea form and it comes with a slew of health benefits.

Read on to find out why you need to cut back orditch your daily coffee and turn to nettle leaf tea instead.

1. Anti-Inflammatory Properties

Anything with anti-inflammatory properties is good in our books. The ability to reduce swelling, pain, and discomfort is nothing to sneeze at, and nettle leaf tea does all three with ease. In fact, studies show that nettle leaf extract can even help with serious diseases like rheumatoid arthritis by reducing inflammation. If you experience the occasional flare ups of joint pain, try a cup of nettle leaf tea instead of turning to pain medication. If you already take prescription drugs for your joint pain, add in a cup of nettle leaf tea daily for an added (and all-natural) boost of pain relief and reduced inflammation.

2. Allergy Relief

Who doesn’t dread allergies every time the seasons change? There’s nothing worse than trying to get through your day with itchy eyes, sneezing, and congestion. You’re probably no stranger to popping allergy medication like it’s going out of style, but nettle leaf tea can actually help you here too. As soon as you start feeling symptoms, have a cup of nettle leaf tea; you could see an immediate reduction in symptoms, allowing you to go about your day as planned (minus a few less annoying allergy symptoms). If you know you tend to start feeling sneezy during your morning commute, take a travel mug of nettle leaf tea with you to counteract the symptoms as they appear. Hey, just because it’s early doesn’t mean you can’t be strategic!

3. Bladder Infections

Bladder infections are no joke. If you’ve ever had one, you know exactly how hard it can be to focus on anything but the pain. Having an at-home solution ready and waiting in your cupboards would be a godsend, which is all the more reason to take another look at nettle leaf tea. Nettle leaf has been shown to reduce symptoms like an increased urge to urinate, painful urination, and lowered urinary flow, which is good news for us. Keep the tea at the ready, because you never know when a bladder infection (and it’s evil, evil symptoms) will strike.

4. Eczema

Eczema is a painful rash that can flare up with stress, diet, dry skin, and many more unknown reasons. It’s unpredictable, uncomfortable, and downright uncompromising—it doesn’t care that it might not be the best week for you to get an eczema flare up, because it’s happening anyway. Nettle leaf tea is often used in home remedies for eczema, and for good reason: because nettle leaf has both anti-inflammatory and anti-histamine properties, your skin is able to calm down a little for some serious pain (and itching) relief. Combine it with your most soothing eczema cream, and you’ve got yourself a recipe for success (15-love, eczema).


So, next time you’re going to forgoHIITing it outside because of allergies, or are trying to get your body back to fighting form after (or during) an illness, or want to soothe an eczema flare up, brew yourself a steeped infusion of nettle leaf tea. Relief is only a few sips away.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
