9 Wonderful Lemongrass Tea Benefits
Improves Digestion
For thousands of years, lemongrass has been used in various cultures around the world to soothe stomach issues and improve overall gut health. The tea contains a component called citral that can help digest food more effectively, thereby preventing constipation and other irritation in the bowels. Furthermore, the anti-inflammatory nature of lemongrass tea’s antioxidants will help improve the balance of your microflora and prevent acid reflux disease, hemorrhoids, and other irritating conditions.

Reduces Inflammation
Whether you are suffering from arthritis, a sore throat, a headache, or a twisted ankle, the anti-inflammatory effects of lemongrass tea can have an effect all over the body. By reducing inflammation in the tissues and cells of the body, it can effectively ease pain and reduce irritation. This also makes lemongrass tea a good topical application for certain skin issues; you can allow the tea to cool and then apply it with a cloth to the affected area.

Treats Depression and Anxiety
Studies reveal that people who regularly consumed lemongrass tea did see improvements in their mood swings and anxiety. The chemicals in lemongrass tea are sedative in nature, which can help relax the mind and prevent worry and stress from building up. It also lowers the levels of stress hormones in the body. In terms of depression, the energy-boosting properties of lemongrass can help turn your mood and behavior patterns around.
