Powerful And Proven Health Benefits Of Bay Leaf


No spice collection is complete without bay leaves.

For thousands of years, humans have been using it in food due to its digestion-boosting, respiratory-enhancing and anti-inflammatory properties.

Of course, it also tastes great – but only after an hour or so of simmering. If you try to eat it before then, you’ll be greeted by a rather bitter and unpleasant taste.

Benefit #1 – Reduced Anxiety.The bay leaf contains a compound called linalool. A study by the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists found that linalool decreases anxiety and enhances social interaction.

In as little as 10 minutes of smelling a burning bay leaf, linalool begins working. Some have even described the effect as mildly psychedelic.
