Thank you for the question.
Bay leaf (Eugenia polyantha) has long been used by the people of our country for food delights. According to many studies, bay leaf is good for health because it contains rich vitamin C, niacin, fiber, tannins, and many other nutritional components, so that it can prevent the formation of kidney stones, minimize the formation of cancer cells (including breast cancer), reduce blood sugar and acid levels veins, relieve pain (including muscle aches, joint pain, abdominal pain), accelerate wound healing and inflammation in the skin, reduce levels of cholesterol and bad fats in the blood, overcome dandruff, and so on.
To get the benefits of bay leaves to be more optimal, it is recommended to consume them in fresh conditions without the cooking process that is too long. But make sure, you first wash the bay leaf thoroughly before consumption to avoid the risk of digestive infections and other health problems.
It should also be understood, that not everyone is good to consume bay leaves at all times. Therefore, despite its many benefits, this leaf should not be consumed too much huh ..
