Every housewife knows the bean leaf from the kitchen. The preparation of soups is almost impossible without it, so the bay leaf has an irreplaceable place in the kitchen. The bay leaf has always been highly valued for its healing properties and has even become a symbol of victory and nobility. It is no wonder that such a revered plant is brimming with healing power. So don’t be afraid to use it yourself!
The range of diseases it cures is wide
Bay leaf tea can undoubtedly be described as a panacea. Its action is very extensive and you should definitely pay attention to it. In addition to ridding the body of excess toxins, even in small doses the tea can help with:
- indigestion and stomach pain,
- reduction of blood sugar,
- reduction of cholesterol,
- rheumatic pains,
- weight loss and acceleration of metabolism,
- insomnia problems.
How to prepare the tea, and most importantly, how to use it?
The preparation of bay leaf tea is unusually simple. One teaspoon of the leaf, ground into small pieces, pour over 3 dl of boiling water and leave to infuse for 15 minutes. Then strain the tea and drink it warm. For a stronger effect, the leaf can be boiled for about 5 minutes and then left to infuse for 5-6 hours in a cool place. Take the tea in small doses throughout the day (no more than a glass a day). It is best to sip it for three days and then take a break for at least a week.
Don’t take contraindications lightly!
Remember that even this panacea should be taken in a reasonable amount and it is best to consult a doctor about its use. Although bay leaf has many valuable properties, some of them may also be undesirable. Because of the strong action of the herbal tea, it is important to be careful during treatment. Bay leaves can increase the risk of internal bleeding, a serious complication for people with blood clotting problems and those taking medications. Bay leaf tea can also interact with some medications, so you should be careful not to overdo anything when taking it.
