Description

Siberian Thyme Herb, 3.53 Oz (100 grams)

Thyme is a plant well-known to both amateur cooks and professional chefs. Fragrant and spicy, the herb is cultivated for culinary, medicinal, and cosmetic purposes. Apart from its health benefits, thyme is also pleasant to the taste. Even the shrub’s leaves themselves look appetizing.

Thyme’s health benefits

Along with its gustatory and aromatic properties, thyme is known for its many health benefits.

Those to consume this spicy herb will be pleasantly surprised by the plant’s distinctive features.

Thyme is known for:

  • providing a mild antispasmodic effect;
  • being a great carminative;
  • its well-known antiseptic properties;
  • strengthening the body’s immune defense during the high season of viral and bacterial infections;
  • producing a pronounced relaxing effect;
  • its body-toning action.

The health benefits of thyme can be explained by the plant’s composition. Thus, the leaves and stems of thyme contain the following beneficial compounds:

  • folic acid;
  • beta-carotene;
  • B-group along А, К, Е, and С vitamins;
  • iron.

A couple of thyme sprigs is a goldmine of health-promoting, youth- and beauty-preserving substances. Thyme leaves serve as a folk remedy to cope with such problems as joint pain, along with cardiovascular system stabilization and possibly the elimination of neurological problems. Some thyme-based recipes are known to successfully treat coughs and relieve various cold-related inflammatory processes.

Thyme has also proved effective for relaxing the nervous system and managing stress-induced problems. Thyme tea is recommended as a warming drink during the cold season. Such a beverage is believed to protect against common colds and the development of viral diseases.

Where to add the spicy herb

Thyme’s delicate leaves and stems provide a nearly universal seasoning that goes with many dishes while also harmonizing well with herbal teas and pastries.

With the noble flavor and pleasant aroma of the plant, much depends on your own taste and imagination. One thyme sprig will make a nice addition to a vegetable salad or a green mix. Besides, the herb will perfectly blend into a fruity and berry composition.

A small dash of the ingredient added to your tea will give the hot beverage a whole new flavor. The warming drink will also produce a tonic effect, which is just what you need for a cozy evening.

It is also appropriate to add some of this herb to honey or a nut and dried fruit vitamin mixture. Some people use thyme to make wonderful decoctions and therapeutic teas, while others put a couple of its leaves in baked goods.
