Nervines are plants that help to nourish and calm the nervous system. These plants are wonderful for helping to soothe nervousness and anxieties. These herbs also lend a calming hand when children have become so overtired that they become wired. They can help to ease children into sleep. They can also soothe aches and pains associated with teething, earaches, and growing pains.
Nourishing plants act as a nutritive food in the body. Their herbal support comes from the high amounts of vitamins, minerals, and other phytochemicals they contain that are easily absorbed.
Stinging Nettle (Urtica dioica) is reputed to have more chlorophyll than any other herb. Since chlorophyll is only one molecule away from the iron carrying hemoglobin, a pregnant woman can use this additional iron to produce the extra blood cells she will need to support her growing baby.

Milky Oats (Avena sativa) contain vitamins A, C, E, & B and the minerals calcium, zinc, iron, and magnesium. They act upon the nervous system as a nourishing tonic and has a normalizing effect on the entire physiology. This is especially important during times of high stress. The relaxing and nourishing qualities of oats ease emotions like fear and anxiety and help with nervous stress, exhaustion, and insomnia.
Alfalfa (Medicago sativa): a wonderful nervous system tonic, alfalfa acts as a cellular de-stressor with its high potassium content. Potassium is a mineral that allows nerve cells to relax; without this vital nutrient, the nervous system would be in a constant state of excitation. Potassium helps regulate a cycle of work and rest in the nervous system, helping the body cope with various stresses at any given time. Alfalfa also contains healthy amounts of calcium and magnesium, specifically for bone formation. These two nutrients have a special symbiotic relationship, where one helps with the absorption and assimilation of the other. Calcium sold in supplement form is often paired with magnesium for this reason.
Red Raspberry Leaf (Rubus idaeus) has been used traditionally to support healthy pregnancies. It contains an alkaloid called fragarine that strengthens and tones the uterine and pelvic areas. Red raspberry leaf is high in vitamins C, E, A, B and has significant amounts of major minerals like magnesium, potassium, calcium, and phosphorus. It also contains essential trace minerals such as zinc, iron, chromium, and manganese. These vitamins and minerals are bioavailable, making Red Raspberry Leaf tea or infusion a wonderful, food-based “supplement” during preconception, pregnancy, and beyond.
