SOMETHING ABOUT VIETNAM LEMONGRASS
Lemongrass is a tropical plant native to Southeast Asia and a common ingredient in Thai cuisine. Now grown in Africa, Australia, and North and South America, lemongrass is widely used as a natural remedy for digestive issues, neurological problems, and high blood pressure.
Lemongrass reportedly has antibacterial and antifungal properties. It has traditionally been used as a pain reliever and fever reducer. Lemongrass contains citral, a natural plant compound with anti-inflammatory effects.
Lemongrass extract is also used to provide the fresh scent in many soaps, candles, disinfectants, and insect repellants.
The best way to enjoy lemongrass is in tea, either commercially prepared or made from fresh lemongrass stalks. You can find fresh lemongrass stalks in Asian grocery stores.
