Today, let’s talk about the benefits of eucalyptus. The primary phytonutrient in this plant that creates a lot of its incredible effects is called eucalyptol.
Potential benefits of eucalyptus:
• It relaxes the lung tissue
• It thins mucus
• It has powerful antimicrobial properties (it may help inhibit TB, MRSA, viruses, candida, and bacteria)
• It may help suppress cytokines
• It may help suppress a cough
The biggest thing that eucalyptus does is suppress cytokines. Cytokines can basically cause inflammation, swelling, and pain. But, breathing in eucalyptus or taking it as a supplement may help reduce pain, inflammation, and swelling. This means it could also be beneficial for people with arthritis and anything related to the lungs, like asthma.
Overall, eucalyptus has been known to be a broad-spectrum natural remedy that is safe and effective.
