Health Benefits Of Taking Lemon-Grass Tea

Lemongrass is a herb that originated in Sri Lanka and South India, although it is now grown in many parts of the world. The plant's stems are used in Asian cooking, but lemongrass may also be used to make tea. Lemongrass tea's health and medicinal advantages have caught the interest of numerous academics.

Although many people believe lemongrass tea provides a number of health advantages, there aren't enough large-scale research to back this up.

Tea has been shown to assist in the fight against free radicals, therefore reducing inflammation in the body, according to doctors. Lemongrass contains the anti-inflammatory compounds chlorogenic acid, isoorientin, and swertiajaponin. Inflammation is linked to a number of health issues, such as pain and heart disease. As a result, lemongrass tea may be a beneficial addition to one's diet.

- Lowering cholesterol levels: According to a study published in the Journal of Advanced Pharmaceutical Technology & Research, lemongrass extracts appear to lower cholesterol levels in rats. According to the research, the response is dose-dependent. This indicates that including more lemongrass in your diet may help you decrease your cholesterol even further.

- Infection prevention: Lemon-grass has anti-infection capabilities, according to studies.

For example, the plant appears to reduce the development of thrush, a fungal infection that commonly affects people with weakened immune systems, such as HIV patients.

- Pain relief: According to one research, lemongrass may be able to prevent discomfort. This indicates that a person who drinks lemongrass tea may be able to avoid suffering discomfort.

Lemongrass tea contains diuretic qualities, which means it helps the kidneys to generate more urine than usual, which relieves bloating.

According to a tiny research published in the Journal of Renal Nutrition, lemongrass tea increases urine output more than other drinks.

This diuretic impact on the body might be beneficial when water retention causes bloating. This is a frequent symptom of premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
