The medicinal properties of wormwood enhance its usefulness in case of low acidity of gastric juice and insufficient bile formation. Further positive effects from the consumption of this plant can be achieved by combining it with other herbs that promote bile secretion. In addition to its ability to increase secretory function, wormwood also contributes to the overall improvement of the digestive system.
Tinctures and decoctions of wormwood are recommended to be taken before meals to stimulate appetite. At the same time, wormwood-based preparations have an effective effect against parasites. Due to its choleretic effect, wormwood helps to lose weight and cleanse the body of toxins.
The plant also has antimicrobial and healing properties, which makes it possible to use wormwood decoctions for external use in the treatment of skin lesions. Compresses made from wormwood, its juice, and finely chopped stems have a decongestant effect.
In addition, wormwood can be useful in dental diseases – rinses based on it promote rapid healing of mucous membranes, eliminate unpleasant odor and reduce inflammation.
Taking wormwood helps to increase the body’s resistance to various infections and negative environmental influences. This herb can be useful as an additional tonic after viral diseases.
