Lemongrass is an herb, typically found in Southeast Asia, which has been used for centuries for its therapeutic and medicinal benefits. This extremely powerful antioxidant adds a lemony taste and citrusy smell to food.
It has been found helpful in:
- Improving digestion by inhibiting bacteria and yeast growth in the gastrointestinal tract
- Reducing inflammation in muscles and joints
- Lessening symptoms of colds and fevers
- Supporting healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels
Lemongrass is also packed full of essential Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, C, and folate. It also provides potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, iron, zinc, and copper – making this a powerhouse herb.
