Lemongrass offers a plethora of goodness to the human body. The fresh smell is known to soothe nerves, and ingesting lemongrass helps relieve anxiety, and may also help manage pain, which is due to the high content of antioxidants. Some studies have also shown it to have some anti-infection and anti-inflammatory properties. And thanks to the high levels of antioxidants, lemongrass helps in detoxifying the body, boosts the production of red blood cells, and keeps the kidneys functional, preventing fluid retention. The antioxidants also make sure that your cholesterol levels are kept under check and the heart is in good health. When infused with tea, the properties of lemongrass mix with the antioxidants and vitamins occurring naturally in tea leaves, making lemongrass tea one of the most refreshing and medicinal teas one will find.
