Lemongrass is a herb that originated in Sri Lanka and South India but is currently planted in a lot of locations throughout the world. The stems of the plant are used in Asian cookery, but lemongrass can also be brewed into tea. The health and medical benefits of lemongrass tea have piqued the curiosity of several scientists.
Many individuals believe that lemongrass tea has a variety of health benefits, but there haven't been enough large-scale studies to back this up.
Doctors are aware that tea can aid in the battle against free radicals, hence lowering inflammation in the body. The anti-inflammatory chemicals chlorogenic acid, isoorientin, and swertiajaponin are found in lemongrass. Inflammation plays a role in a variety of health problems, including pain and heart disease. As a result, lemongrass tea could be a healthy beverage to include in one's diet.
1. Improving cholesterol levels
Lemongrass extracts appear to decrease cholesterol in rats, according to an article published in the Journal of Advanced Pharmaceutical Technology & Research. The reaction is dose-dependent, according to the study. This suggests that increasing the amount of lemongrass in your diet could help you lower your cholesterol even further.
2. Infection prevention.
According to the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, research findings reveal that lemongrass may have anti-infection properties.
The plant, for example, appears to lessen the occurrence of thrush, a fungal illness that typically affects persons with compromised immune systems, such as HIV patients.
3. Pain reduction.
Lemongrass may be able to block discomfort, according to one study. This means that drinking lemongrass tea may assist to prevent a person from experiencing pain.
4. Bloating relief.
Lemongrass tea has diuretic properties, which means it encourages the kidneys to produce more pee than usual.
Lemongrass tea boosts urine output more than other beverages, according to a small-scale study published in the Journal of Renal Nutrition.
When water retention causes bloating, this diuretic action on the body can be useful. This is a common premenstrual syndrome symptom (PMS).
