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
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.

GROWING RABBITS FED CITRUS LIMON OVERABUNDANT DIET
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
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 .
