Description

Although verbena is native to South America, it has largely become a globally accessible plant and herb due to its powerful medicinal effects and properties as a food additive. The plant is a perennial shrub that has a strong lemony aroma. However, the traditional uses of verbena as a medicinal herb have returned to modern herbal use, especially since modern research has revealed a wealth of unique ingredients that make this plant very important for human health. One of the unique properties of this herb and one that you don’t often find in simple teas.
When using verbena tea as an exercise supplement, research has shown that the high antioxidant properties of the herb reduce the damage it causes to muscles during training, without inhibiting the growth of additional muscle mass from your body, also offering increased endurance.
Arthritis and injuries can destroy our joints and mobility. As we age, or when we get injured, it can be difficult to feel able-bodied again because our joints are in constant use and rarely have time to heal properly.  Verbena has been directly linked to reducing joint pain and faster recovery for joint-related injuries. This is mainly due to the impressive levels of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds in this small herb. Oxidative stress is a result of the activity of free radicals and their presence in all organs of our body, which weakens the immune system, thus helping the creation of cell mutations and chronic diseases.
Tea from verbena also has some soothing properties that are traditionally based on relieving stomach problems and indigestion in different cultures.
Verbena can have potentially antispasmodic properties that can help it calm the stomach and eliminate cramps and bloating, which can lead to discomfort and gastrointestinal problems. As mentioned earlier, lemon verbena helps regulate appetite by affecting certain hormones that control appetite, which helps prevent discomfort associated with overeating. In traditional South American medicine,  verbena is used as a diaphoretic, which means it stimulates sweating and is therefore used to reduce fevers and speed up healing for those suffering from inflammatory diseases. Antioxidant compounds found in verbena can also have an impact on hormonal balance in the body. The ultimate beneficial characteristic of verbena is its expectorant properties. This means that drinking tea can ease congestion in the respiratory tracts and help eliminate phlegm and mucosa. Phlegm can be breeding ground for bacteria and other pathogens, so eating verbena tea can help get rid of mucus is definitely a good way to improve your immune system.
