Blue vervain or Verbena officinalis is a perennial plant believed to originate from the Mediterranean region. Nowadays it grows wild in various other parts of the world including most of Europe, North Africa, Japan and China. American Blue Vervain or Verbena hastata is another type of the same plant and is a native of Canada and parts of northern USA. The most important health benefits of blue vervain include its ability to stimulate the liver, soothe the nervous system, detoxify the body, reduce depression and stress, eliminate pain, lower inflammation, protect the immune system, and alleviate chest congestion. One of the oldest and most reliable uses of blue vervain is as a diuretic, as it stimulates the release of urine from the body. This can help to eliminate toxins from the system, as well as excess water, salts, and fat. It also helps to protect the kidneys and the liver by reducing the presence of dangerous substances and toxins that accumulate there. If you have a bladder infection, blue vervain can be a highly effective remedy. If you regularly suffer from chest congestion, colds, chronic bronchitis, sore throats or respiratory inflammation, blue vervain tea can be a simple and pleasant means of clearing up your tracts and eliminating irritation. There are certain soothing properties of blue vervain that can effectively treat a number of ailments, including nervous disorders, chronic anxiety, stress, and sleeplessness. For women who suffer from strong or severe periods, blue vervain can be a blessing. It has been known to reduce cramps and general discomfort, primarily for women who are bloated and cramping. Can also be used to bring on periods. Some women struggle to produce enough milk for their baby, and this is completely natural in many cases. However, blue vervain can help to stimulate the production of milk in the breast, ensuring that your baby has all of the nutrients it needs in that crucial period of growth. The anti-inflammatory properties of the herb are the perfect complement to this pain relief, as it will also reduce swelling and inflammation, such as in cases of gout, arthritis, or inflammation in the gastrointestinal system.
