Health Benefits of Lovage

1. Fights the Risk of Kidney Stones

Lovage is an aquaretic, or a type of diuretic that encourages urination without electrolyte loss. The increased urination flushes the urinary tract to potentially help avoid kidney stones.

2. Lung Support

Traditional medicine uses lovage to loosen phlegm in the lungs, which in turn improves airflow, breathing, and oxygen intake. In one trial eucalyptol, the active chemical compound in lovage that reduces lung irritation, produced significant, positive results within four days.

3. Soothes Rough Spots

It turns out lovage is loaded with compounds that may soothe rough patches in the body. Compounds in lovage that provide this benefit include limonene, eugenol, and quercetin. Studies involving limonene have shown it provides soothing effects throughout the body, although it has been especially noted to help reduce issues associated with colitis.

4. Promotes Healthy Skin

Lovage is recommended as a natural way to fight skin conditions like dermatitis and acne. The exact mechanism of action is not fully understood, but traditional skin care approaches include lovage in their routines.

5. Fights Harmful Organisms

Scientists have found lovage one of the most potent extracts against organisms like E. coli, Salmonella, H. pylori, and H. influenzae.

6. Eases Digestion and Relieves Gas

 

The soothing benefits of lovage are very effective and it's even a great remedy to soothe the digestive tract, reduce bloating, and relieve gas.
