The benefits of lemongrass, also known as cymbopogon, are diverse. It has strong antiviral, antibacterial and antiseptic properties, and acts as a sedative, widely used to treat anxiety and insomnia.
As a tea, lemongrass aids in detoxifying the body, especially the digestive system, bladder, liver, pancreas, and kidneys. Ayurvedic writings mention lemongrass as a treatment for coughs and cold symptoms. It brims with antioxidants and vitamin C, providing a strong boost to the immune system and aiding in pain relief.
