Research led by Dr. Rivka Ofir and Prof. Yakov Weinstein, of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology in Israel, found that the compound that produces the Lemongrass Tea scent in this herb, kills cancer cells in test tubes, while leaving healthy cells intact.
The study found that citral, the aromatic substance found in lemongrass or, lemon grass, causes cancer cells to “kill themselves” by a mechanism called programmed cell death.
The researchers observed that a drink with only one gram of lemon grass seems to have the necessary amount of citral to propel the cancer cells to commit suicide. More research on the potential of this herb to fight cancer continues.
