Lemon Verbena Health Benefits
There is extensive clinical evidence that lemon verbena is effective for a wide variety of ailments. The lemon verbena contains a lot of essential oils, as well as flavonoids and antioxidants.
The essential oils have a calming and at the same time mood-lifting effect on most people. This can also help with sleep disorders. The antioxidants are known to bind free radicals, which protects the body from oxidative stress. This is important for muscle regeneration and other important body functions. It can also have a positive effect on joint pain. Furthermore, lemon verbena has a partial antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effect. Lemon verbena also has a positive effect on breastfeeding mothers - it stimulates the flow of milk, as this study proves here.
In fact, lemon verbena has no known side effects, apart from a small number of people who have allergic reactions to the essential oils it contains - but these people also react to many other herbs in the same way. For everyone else, a freshly brewed tea made from lemon shrub is just the thing. Cheers.
