Today I present to you another medicinal plant that is in my garden.
Wormwood is known for its bitter taste, but also for the many beneficial health effects it brings. The healing effects of wormwood have been known since ancient times. Although it can help with many problems, it should be noted that it contains a substance called thujone, which can be toxic in large quantities. Thus, after about a week of regular consumption of wormwood preparations – usually teas – a short break is required.
Wormwood is extremely helpful in various digestive problems.
Wormwood has been proven to relieve cramps and stimulate blood circulation, which helps to improve blood circulation to the gastrointestinal tract and kidneys. The result is both better digestion and better metabolism. It is used to stimulate appetite, against bloating, against intestinal parasites to strengthen the intestinal mucosa.
