Anemia is a condition in which the level of healthy red blood cells in the body becomes too low. This can be damaging to health since red blood cells contain hemoglobin, which transports oxygen to the body’s tissues. It can cause health complications, such as fatigue and stress on the body’s organs. A study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food found that lemongrass tea can assist in increasing red blood cell production, making it a great natural treatment for anemia.
