Effect Of Lemongrass Water To The Body Of A Hypertensive Patient

Published

on

Herbal tea made from the leaves and stems of the lemongrass plant is known as “lemongrass water” (Cymbopogon citratus). Traditional medical practitioners have used this plant, which is indigenous to India and other tropical regions, to cure a wide range of illnesses for centuries. In recent years, lemongrass water’s reputation as an effective natural treatment for hypertension (also known as high blood pressure) has grown.

Millions of people all around the world deal with the devastating effects of hypertension every day. Consistently elevated blood pressure is a hallmark of this condition, and it can lead to artery damage and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, stroke, and other serious illnesses. Despite the availability of numerous pharmaceutical options for the management of hypertension, an increasing number of people are seeking relief from their condition through more natural means.

According to healthline Drinking water infused with lemongrass may have a number of health benefits, including the ability to lower blood pressure and improve circulation, according to a review of the available research published on webmd. This is because citral and geraniol, compounds found in lemongrass, have been shown to have anti-inflammatory and vasodilatory effects in animal studies. This is why lemongrass works in this way. Vasodilation, the process of expanding blood vessels, can help lower blood pressure and increase blood flow.

One study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology looked into the effect of drinking water infused with lemongrass on the blood pressure of hypertensive rats. Scientists found that the rats’ systolic blood pressure (the top number in a blood pressure reading) dropped significantly when they drank water infused with lemongrass. This lends credence to the idea that consuming lemongrass-infused water can reduce blood pressure.

In addition to its effect on blood pressure, lemongrass water may also have other health benefits for hypertensive persons. As an example, studies have shown that it has antioxidant and antibacterial properties, which can help protect against infections and boost overall health and well-being. Drinking water infused with lemongrass may not only aid digestion, but also reduce inflammation.

Although the potential benefits of lemongrass water for hypertension patients are exciting, it is important to note that further study is required in order to fully understand the influence that lemongrass water has on the body. Have an appointment with your primary care physician before starting any new treatment, whether it’s an alternative treatment like lemongrass water or something more conventional.

The consumption of lemongrass-infused water is only one of several natural methods available for managing hypertension and improving overall health. Here are a few examples:

Fruits, vegetables, entire grains, and lean proteins should all make up the bulk of your daily diet. Avoid processed foods that are high in sodium and saturated and trans fats, and reduce your overall food intake as much as possible.

Exercising on a regular basis. Strive for at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity per week, or at least 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity per week.

cutting back on your alcohol intake. Women shouldn’t consume more than one alcoholic beverage each day, and males shouldn’t consume more than two.

Dealing with anxiety. It can be helpful to learn how to de-stress in healthy ways, like through yoga, meditation, or physical activity. Because stress can cause a steady increase in blood pressure, controlling it is crucial.

Put down the cigarette! Because smoking raises blood pressure and damages arteries, it increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke.

In general, those with hypertension may reap some health benefits from consuming water flavoured with lemongrass. Changing one’s diet and drinking water infused with lemongrass have both been linked to reduced hypertension and improved health, though further research is needed to confirm these effects. A discussion with your primary care physician about your treatment options is essential before making any changes to your existing regimen.
