voordelen van lavas (glutenvrij)

Lovage, also known as maggi plant, is an herb often used in cooking for its distinctive taste and aroma. In addition to its culinary uses, lovage also has several health benefits. We also use this herb in various VA Foods products. The benefits of lovage include;

  1. Anti-inflammatory properties
    Lovage has anti-inflammatory properties and can help reduce inflammation in the body, which is common in celiac disease.
  2. Digestive problems
    Lovage is known for its calming effect on the digestive system. People with celiac disease can have digestive problems due to the damage of the intestinal lining by gluten. Lovage can help relieve these symptoms, such as abdominal pain, gas, and bloating.
  3. Relief of menstrual pain
    Lovage can also help reduce menstrual cramps. Apiol, also found in lovage, has an antispasmodic effect and can help relax the muscles in the uterus. This can reduce the pain and cramping associated with menstruation.
  4. Strengthening the immune system
    Lovage contains several antioxidants that can strengthen the immune system. Antioxidants help fight the harmful effects of free radicals, which can damage the body and increase the risk of chronic disease.
  5. Lowering of blood pressure
    Lovage may also help lower blood pressure. In fact, the herb contains substances known as coumarins, which can relax blood vessels and thereby lower blood pressure.
