- Anti-Inflammatory + Digestion -

Wormwood is used for various digestion problems such as loss of appetite, upset stomach, gallbladder disease, and intestinal spasms. Wormwood is also used to treat fever, liver disease, depression, muscle pain, memory loss and worm infections; to increase sexual desire; as a tonic; and to stimulate sweating. Wormwood contains the phytochemicals 'azulenes', compounds which are proven to have powerful anti-inflammatory activity. Whilst inflammation is a necessary step in the healing process - persistent, low level inflammation is at the root of practically all known chronic health conditions, including everything from rheumatoid arthritis and high cholesterol to dementia. This anti-inflammatory effect is responsible for the relief Wormwood can provide from the pain and swelling of arthritis.

DO NOT TAKE: If you're pregnant or breastfeeding, have heart disease, kidney problems or epilepsy. Not for long term use or excess dose.

Wormwood tea recipe: Steep _ to 1 teaspoon of dried wormwood leaves in one cup (250 mL) of boiling water. Steep for 5-10 minutes; the longer you steep, the more bitter the flavor. Add peppermint, honey, or lemon juice to taste (not required).
