This classic combination perfectly balances refreshing lemongrass with the gentle spice of ginger root and organic lemon myrtle, making the ideal caffeine free infusion for any time of the day. Lemongrass has a cooling energy which helps to soothe your stomach and keeps your digestive functions in check. It contains a component called citral that helps to digest food. It has been used as an ancient remedy for all stomach problems in Chinese medicine like bloating, constipation or indigestion.
Additionally, lemongrass is nature’s formula for taming high blood pressure. It is rich in potassium which increases the production of urine in our body, which in turn stimulates blood circulation and lowers blood pressure. By increasing blood circulation, it also helps in purifying the liver. Lemongrass is also known to limit cholesterol absorption from the intestines, thus promoting overall heart health.
