What is Lemongrass
With a distinct citrus aroma, Lemongrass is a tall, slender grass in the Poaceae family. It is native to Asia and is commonly used for culinary and fragrance purposes. However, Lemongrass has traditionally been regarded as a healing medicinal herb with many fantastic health benefits.
Lemongrass has a range of nutritive compounds that make it a stellar beverage. It contains a host of vitamins including A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and C, plus many body-sustaining minerals such as calcium, zinc, iron, copper, potassium, phosphorous, manganese and magnesium. Moreover, Lemongrass Tea is bursting with antioxidants, flavonoids and phenolic compounds like quercetin, catecol, chlorogenic acid, and luteolin, to name a few. It also contains powerful volatile oils like the antioxidant citral. Lemongrass is considered a lemonal or citral, which gives it its antimicrobial properties and also lemony scent.
Benefits of Lemongrass
Lemongrass has phenomenal health benefits stemming from its broad range of active ingredients that help cleanse and strengthen the body and boost the immune system. With tremendous antioxidants, especially citral, Lemongrass helps cells protect, defend and repair against free radicals that cause oxidative stress. Citral activates an enzyme that purifies cells to expel free radicals that weaken cells. As cells remain stronger and healthier, the entire body operates at a higher level and tissues, organs and regulatory systems can thrive. It also slows the risk of serious cellular mutation and disease, as well as the whole biological aging process for a more youthful, healthy body.
Lemongrass is promoted to reduce pain and symptoms from common colds, fevers, coughs, the flu, congestion and other respiratory issues. Sometimes Lemongrass is called fever grass because it works to break fevers by inducing sweat. And with a ton of antioxidants like Vitamin C, it is great for reducing mucous and nasal blockages to make the body feel better faster after sickness. Lemongrass Tea also helps with chronic swelling from rheumatism and arthritic pain, and water retention known as edema.
Lemongrass proves to have wonderful benefits for the heart and brain, as well as mental and emotional health. Lemongrass Tea supports the nervous system to calm the nerves and reduce stress both through its nutritive properties and its relaxing citrus aroma. Plus, it stimulates neurons for greater cognitive function and less risk of degenerative brain diseases. Lemongrass tea can also rev the metabolism for a steadier use of energy throughout the day.
