German nutritionist Zilke Ristmeier said that the herbs are characterized by great health benefits, as they are rich in vitamins such as vitamin A (A), C (C) and K (K) and minerals such as iron and potassium.
Ristmeyer explained that the herbs are replete with secondary plant compounds that have an anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory effect, and they also reduce high blood pressure, and they are rich in essential oils that work to open the appetite or feel calm and relaxed.
