LEMON VERBENA

Lemon Verbena Tea, is one of the premium weight loss products made from Aloysia Citrodora. The health benefits of this herb are well-documented, which makes it highly sought after. 

Consumed regularly, the health benefits include:

Natural Slimming Aid / Weight Loss

Drinking tea, sugar-free of course, is generally beneficial as part of a weight-loss programme. Lemon verbena, however, is particularly suited for this task. It has been shown to suppress the appetite, helping curb those irresistible cravings for snacks or sweets. Drinking lemon verbena tea between meals can, therefore, help you stick to your diet and achieve your weight-loss goals.

In addition to the natural appetite suppressing property, which prevents overeating, lemon verbena tea also promotes the burning of fat, stimulates the breakdown of cellulite, and regulates the metabolism.

Detox and Immunity Boost

Detoxing is a constant and vital process for removing free radicals and staying healthy. Drinking lemon verbena tea can stimulate the detox process. Research has shown that lemon verbena is very rich in phenolic compounds. Phenolic compounds are powerful antioxidants which protect against free radicals. The phenolic compounds help reduce oxidative stress by aiding the body in detoxifying and neutralising the harmful effects of free radicals. This keeps the body healthy, boosting the immune system.

Lemon verbena tea shows comparable antioxidant activity to green tea but without the bitterness. It has similar free-radical-scavenging properties as some of the best known neuroprotective plants such as Ginkgo biloba, Ginseng, and Curcuma. Moreover, there's the added benefit of it being naturally caffeine free. Lemon verbena tea can thus be drunk as a detox and restorative tea throughout the day, but is especially potent at night.

Anti-inflammatory

The verbascoside in lemon verbena fights inflammation by increasing the production of tyrosine phosphatase, which in turn decreases inflammation.

Polyphenols like verbascoside derived from lemon verbena reduce inflammatory effects by reducing reactive oxidative species, which are accumulated at the site of inflammation and cause oxidative stress to the body. Lemon verbena extract causes a reduction in proinflammatory cytokines levels IFN-γ, IL-12, and IL-23.

Inflammation is one of the main factors leading to the progressive worsening of multiple sclerosis (MS). In a study (DB-RCT) of 30 MS patients, long term inflammation marker levels (reactive protein levels and other inflammatory markers) decreased after lemon verbena supplementation.

Reduces Muscle Damage During Exercise

Lemon verbena supplementation reduced oxidative damage to fats and proteins and muscular damage in 15 male volunteers after a 21-day intense running program..

In another study (DB-RCT) of 15 male students, a lemon verbena polyphenol extract decreased oxidative stress in a similar 21-day aerobic exercise program. This effect was mainly due to verbascoside, a polyphenolic compound that protects against UV radiation.

Lemon verbena decreases and maintains levels of serum transaminases, enzymes that break down proteins into energy-storage molecules. This shows a correlation between consumption and reduction of fat build up, as well as protection of white blood cells against damage caused by exercise [18].

Promotes Digestion

In many cultures, lemon verbena tea has historically been used to promote digestion. Similar to other herbs renowned for their beneficial digestive properties, lemon verbena can soothe your tummy, through its antispasmodic qualities. This means it calms the gastrointestinal tract. By doing so, it can help reduce symptoms from, for example, irritable bowel syndrome, indigestion, cramping, or bloating. This allows the digestive tract to function as intended.‎

Relieves Congestion

The final beneficial attribute of lemon verbena is its expectorant properties. This means that drinking the tea can loosen up congestion in the respiratory tracts and help eliminate the phlegm and mucous in that system. Phlegm can be a breeding ground for bacteria and other pathogens, so drinking a tea that can help get rid of that unwanted material is definitely a good way to improve your immune system.

Combats Fever

A freshly brewed cup of lemon verbena tea can help reduce a high fever. The compounds of the herb dismantle microbes that contribute to the illness. Fever often brings cold as well and you will be delighted to learn that lemon verbena possesses qualities that are known to fight cold and flu causing bacteria.

Reduces Stress

Lemon verbena makes a soothing and relaxing infusion. Finding time for yourself to enjoy a delicious cup of tea relieves tension and helps reduce stress. But the components in lemon verbena give an extra boost as they have a mildly calming effect on the nervous system and help relieve muscle tension. These calming and tension releasing properties aid in reducing nerves, anxiety, and stress.

Studies have indicated that verbascoside, a biological component in the lemon verbena leaf, is the main ingredient responsible for the stress and anxiety reducing properties.
