Lemongrass is a herb that is native to Sri Lanka n\and South India. The plant’s stalks are commonly used as an ingredient in Asian cooking, but it is also possible to brew lemongrass to make tea. This tea can help fight against free radicals, helping to reduce inflammation in the body. Other benefits include relieving stress, lowering cholesterol, preventing infection, boosting oral health, relieving pain, boosting red blood cell levels, and relieving bloating. This makes it not only a delicious ingredient, but a healthy one too [1].
