Lemongrass is a popular ingredient in traditional Thai soups, tea, and in folk medicine. Studies indicate that lemongrass possesses various pharmacological activities such as anti-cancer and antibacterial effects, and that it has anti-amoebic, antifungal, as well as anti-inflammatory and antidiarrheal properties.
- IMMUNE SYSTEM SUPPORT: Geranial and neral oils present in lemongrass have antibacterial effects against Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Staphylococus aureus and Salmonella paratyphi and Shigella flexneri. Lemongrass is also an anti-amoebic and an antifungal agent, and is effective against protozoa and mycobacterium. It was found to have anti-malarial effects, that were almost as effective (at 86%) as a leading antimalarial drug chloroquine.
- CANCER: Lemongrass slows the growth of cancer cells, and has been shown to decrease metastasis (spread of existing cancer cells to new areas of the body)
- ANTIOXIDANT: Lemongrass is rich in antioxidants capable of eliminating free radicals that accelerate ageing.
- HIGH CHOLESTEROL: Lemongrass extract lowers cholesterol in the blood and may therefore have positive effects on cardiac health.
- DIABETES: Lemongrass has hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic effects, lowering blood sugar and triglycerides, which in turn lowers the risk of diabetes.
- ANTI-DIARRHEA: Lemongrass treats digestive tract spasms and diarrhea, with higher doses having the strongest effect.
- FREEZE DRIED: The organic lemongrass herb contained in this product is pure and freeze dried for maximum efficacy, ensuring pharmacologically active properties are protected, and the product is easily digested. It has not been subjected to any heat during the drying process or any means of mechanical grinding. The freeze dry process offers vastly superior preservation of the active constituents of the herb, offering nutritional value comparable to that of the fresh plant.
