    Antioxidant, Hepatoprotective, and Anthelmintic Activities of Methanol
    Extract of Urtica dioica L. Leaves

    “Anthelmintic activity of the methanol extract was also investigated using adult Indian earth worms (Pheretima posthuma) and the results revealed a dose dependent increase in anthelmintic activity of the extract at 25, 50, and 100 mg/mL concentrations. “

    In the conclusion:
    present study also clearly indicated the traditional ethno
    medical claim of the plant as anthelminthic and also its use
    in hepatopathy. We have already undertaken a further investigation on the isolation and identification of compounds
    related to the antioxidant, hepatoprotective and anthelminthic
    activity in this plant, which may lead to new chemical leads
    with potential for clinical use and further investigation.”

    “Throughout the remainder of the study, there
    was no significant difference in the FEC of the natural garlic extract treated sheep when compared to the Ivermectin treated sheep. The control sheep had significantly higher than the natural garlic extract and Ivermectin treated

    “Throughout the experiment we observed that there was no significant change in
    BW between sheep that were administered natural garlic extract and those that were
    administered Ivermectin. The sheep that were not treated with an anthelmintic lost
    weight compared to the other treatment groups, most likely due to the increase in
    parasite load. This is advantageous to the producer because they could implement
    using only natural garlic extract instead of the commercially available anthelmintic
    (Ivermectin) and still achieve the same rates of production (Perry and Randolph, 1999)”

    “Little scientific research has been conducted on using garlic as an anthelmintic in
    sheep, but it is thought that garlic does not prevent the production of parasite eggs but
    rather the hatching of eggs into larvae (Bastidas, 1969). Our results are in agreement
    with this hypothesis, as we observed no difference in FEC between the garlic extract
    and commercially available anthelmintic treatment groups.”

    In other words, the garlic extract worked just as well as ivermectin!
