A fragrant tropical grass which yields an oil that smells of lemon, is referred to as ‘lemongrass'. It is used in Asian cooking, perfumery and medicine. It is a genus of African, Asian, Australian, and tropical island plants in the grass family. Here Michelle Simmons, NaturalNews.com, reflects on the many health benefits associated with lemongrass, and lemongrass tea:
“People with anemia may find that drinking lemongrass tea may benefit them. A study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food found that lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) tea can help increase red blood cell production, making it a great natural treatment for anemia.

Anemia is a condition in which the level of healthy red blood cells in the body becomes too low. This can potentially harm health because red blood cells contain hemoglobin, which transports oxygen to the body’s tissues. It can cause health complications, such as fatigue and stress on the body’s organs. (Related: 7 Potent Superfoods To Combat Anemia And Balanced Hemoglobin.)

For the study, researchers from the University of Uyo and the University of Calabar in Nigeria looked at the effects of lemongrass tea on hematologic indices in humans. To do this, they enrolled 105 individuals aged 18 to 35 years to participate in the study. All participants underwent a thorough pre-survey medical screening.
The participants were randomly assigned to one of three groups, with groups 1, 2, and 3 receiving two, four, or eight grams (g) of lemongrass leaf powder, respectively, infused in 150 milliliters (ml) of hot water once a day for 30 days. The researchers assessed their hematologic indices one day before the intervention and at the 10th and 30th days after the intervention.

The results revealed that lemongrass leaf powder contains tannins, saponins, alkaloids, flavonoids, macronutrients, and micronutrients. All infusions from lemongrass leaf powder greatly increased packed cell volume (PCV), which is the percentage of red blood cells found in the blood. Lemongrass leaf infusions also significantly increased hemoglobin and red blood cell levels.”
