Product Description

Native to the Mediterranean, bay leaves are picked from a densely leafed evergreen that grows profusely along the Mediterranean Sea. Generally used to flavor soups, stews and roasted meats their aromatic flavor is enhanced as it cooks, they should be removed before serving. Its scent giving plant compounds are among the most powerful antioxidants in existence. Some people claim putting a couple leaves in stored grains helps to repel insects; in fact they are routinely used to preserve food. Research in Korea found their antioxidant power reduced oxidation, the internal “rust” that erodes cells in our bodies. They found bay leaf at the top of the list and stronger than vitamin C and stronger than BHA and BHT currently used to preserve food. It’s been known in research to reduce blood sugar levels by 25%, drop bad LDL 30-40% and total cholesterol by 25-30%. It may also help prevent or treat Arthritis, Cancer, Indigestion and food poisoning mosquito bites, ulcers and help heal wounds.*

The bay leaf was so revered it was used to make crowns in ancient Roman times.
