How to eat

Lemongrass is a staple spice in many Asian cuisines, mostly used for its characteristic pungent, lemony aroma to enhance the taste of various dishes, both sweet and savory or beverages. The essential oil extracted from lemongrass can be used as a bug repellent or used in aromatherapy to freshen the air, reduce stress, and uplift the mood.
Lemongrass is also used as a folk remedy to promote sleep, relieve pain, and boost immunity.

Health benefit

Lemongrass offers a lot of nutritional benefits. One cup of lemongrass contains more than 10% of the recommended daily amount of iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, and folate. The mineral with the highest content in it is manganese – about 175% of the recommended value. Manganese is an essential nutrient and is used in the treatment of osteoporosis, anemia, and premenstrual syndrome.

Lemongrass helps to stimulate digestion and prevent flatulence. It also helps to eliminate phlegm and eliminate bad breath. Lemongrass contains mainly citral which helps to kill and prevent cancer cells, sparing other healthy cells. Besides, lemongrass contains beta-carotene-1 which is an antioxidant that can also help the body prevent cancer. Moreover, it can help the body eliminate uric acid and unwanted toxic substances inside the body. In particular, drinking lemongrass juice can cure hangovers.
