Nettle leaf has a fair amount of vitamin C, but nowhere near the levels of sources such as acerola, amla or rose hips. On the other hand nettle leaf is a much better source of silica for collagen formation.

This is another reason I prefer formulations over individual herbs in most cases. Formulations can cover a lot more aspects. Therefore, I would recommend going with the nettle leaf in conjunction with a high vitamin C source. The nettle leaf is also a good source of amino acids and trace minerals also needed for collagen formation.
