Lemongrass is a grasslike plant that has a strong, lemony fragrance and taste. Native to Africa and Asia, Lemongrass is used for a wide variety of purposes and research has shown it also has significant health benefits.
Lemongrass contains a number of beneficial components, including one called citral which is a mixture of several similar compounds. Cancer research has shown that citral acts as an antioxidant that can help protect your cells against damage by free radicals.
Studies have also proven that lemongrass has anti-microbial properties that help to prevent or slow the growth of bacteria and fungi. Research has shown that regularly drinking tea with lemongrass was effective against the oral fungal infection called thrush.
