Bay leaf doesn’t only add flavor to your meal. It also has amazing benefits for your health!
The health benefits of Bay Leaf are numerous. Bay Leaves are extremely beneficial for health and can be used in various ways. Bay Leaves are rich in iron, calcium, manganese, magnesium, potassium and vitamins A and C. These are extremely beneficial for the body and are therefore fit for human consumption. When used in cooking, these are a highly nutritious addition to cuisine.
Also, bay leaf, including bay leaf essential oil, offers antimicrobial and antioxidant benefits. A study conducted at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University focused on the antimicrobial and antioxidant activities of specific essential oils from white wormwood, rose-scented geranium and bay laurel on fresh produce against Salmonella and E. coli. All three essential oils showed antioxidant properties, with the highest activity occurring in bay laurel essential oil.
A few studies suggest bay leaf could be helpful to destroy cancer cells. This is because it is packed with phytonutrients and catechins – compounds that can tackle cancer cells. One study revealed bay leaf extracts helped eliminate breast cancer cells.
