Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus), a stalky plant with long, thin leaves, is one of the largely cultivated medicinal plants for its essential oils in parts of Asia, Africa and America. It has a fresh, lemony aroma and a citrus flavor. It is a common ingredient in soups, curries, laksa, and tomyam. One of the most popular ways to enjoy lemongrass is in tea.

Anti-inflammatory and Relieve Pain
In vivo study on effect of lemongrass extract on inflammation and pain
|Subject||ALB/c mice (n=20)||Male rats and mice (n=48)|
|Duration of the study||3 days||4 hours|
|Dosage||200 mg/kg body weight||35－140 mg/kg|
|Groups||• Control group • Treatment group||• Negative control • Positive control • Test group|
|Parameters analysed||Macrophages obtained to determine cytokine production||• Paw oedema volume • Analgesic capacity • Histological analysis|
|Function • Lemongrass has anti-inflammatory action by cytokine inhibition. • The polyphenols present in the extract showed a significant contribution for these activities.||Visible benefits • Lemongrass extract inhibited macrophages to produce IL-1β. • Linalool oxide and epoxy-linalool oxide found in the extract possess anti-inflammatory activity.||Visible benefits • Lemongrass extract inhibited oedema by 70.8 and 82.3% in acute inflammatory models while 84% for positive control group • The extract reduced peripheral pain by 57% and 83% for positive control group.|
In vivo study on antioxidant activity of lemongrass extract
|Duration of the study||10 days|
|Dosage||100 mg/kg body weight|
|Groups||• Normal (no treatment) • Control (paracetamol alone) • Treatment group (Extract + paracetamol)|
|Parameters analysed||Malondialdehyde (MDA) -Serum vitamin C • Catalase activity • Cholesterol • Phospholipids|
|Function • LG extract could protect from drug-induced lipids peroxidation via its antioxidative effects. • LG extract has several phenolic compounds such as isoscoparin, swertiajaponin, isoorientin, chlorogenic acid, and caffeic acid that exert cardioprotective effect.||Visible benefits • Pre-treatment with lemongrass inhibited the elevation of serum levels of MDA and catalase. • The depletion of vitamin C was also prevented. • The extract prevented alteration to membrane lipids by preventing the increase in cholesterol/phospholipid ratio by paracetamol.|
|Subject||Male rats (n=30)|
|Duration of the study||60 days|
|Dosage||100, 200 mg/kg body weight|
|Groups||• Normal • Induced cardiotoxicity and untreated • 100 mg/kg body weight • 200 mg/kg body weight • Vitamin E|
|Parameters analysed||• Creatine kinase,lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), glutamate oxaloacetate transaminase (GOT) and glutamate pyruvate transaminase(GPT) • Oxidative stress markers like thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) and hydroperoxide • Enzymatic antioxidants like superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, glutathione peroxidase(GPx) and glutathione-s-transferase (GST) • Non-enzymatic antioxidants like reduced glutathione (GSH), vitamin E and vitamin C.|
|Function • LG extract could protect from drug-induced lipids peroxidation via its antioxidative effects. • LG extract has several phenolic compounds such as isoscoparin, swertiajaponin, isoorientin, chlorogenic acid, and caffeic acid that exert cardioprotective effect.||Visible benefits • LG pretreatment decreased activity of cardiac markers in serum and increased the same in heart homogenate. • LG decreased the toxic events of lipid peroxidation (TBARS) in both serum and heart tissue, by increasing the level of enzymatic antioxidants and non-enzymatic antioxidants. • The LG extract at a dose of 200 mg/kg b.wt.is cardioprotective and antilipid peroxidative, which is comparable to vitamin E.|
Lemongrass Extract Reduces Body Lipid and Glucose Level
In vivo study on lemongrass extract on lipid profile and glucose level
|Subject||Male rats (n=18)|
|Duration of the study||4 weeks|
|Dosage||1.5 ml/10g BW daily|
|Groups||• Non-diabetic control rats |
• Non-treated diabetic rats (NTDR)
• Treated diabetic rats (TDR)
|Parameters analysed||Total cholesterol (TC), triglyceride (TG), high-density lipoprotein (HDL), low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and glucose levels in blood|
LG extract has both hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic effects.
LG extract reduced BW, blood glucose, TG, TC and LDL levels of diabetic rats and the rats had higher HDL levels compared to the non-treated group.
In vivo study on lemongrass extract on digestion
|Subject||Male mice (n=32)|
|Duration of the study||1 hour|
|Dosage||200 and 400 mg/kg BW|
|Groups||• Negative control |
• Positive control
• 200 mg/kg BW
• 400 mg/kg BW
|Parameters analysed||Gastric damage lesion score|
LG extract can be used to reduce gastric damage and thus potentially be used to treat gastric ulcer, stomach cramping or upset.
• LG pretreatment depicted a higher preventive index in ethanol-(88%) and aspirin-induced (76%) acute ulceration.
• The extract protects against aspirin-induced gastric ulcers may be due to enhanced synthesis of prostaglandins, thus improving the microcirculation.
Boosting Red Blood Cell Levels
In vivo study on lemongrass extract on red blood cells
|Subject||55 men and 50 women aged 18-35|
|Duration of the study||30 days|
|Dosage||Infusion of 2, 4, or 8 g of lemongrass leaves once daily|
|Groups||• 2g • 4g • 8g|
|Parameters analysed||Hemoglobin (Hb) concentration, packed cell volume (PCV), red blood cell (RBC) count, mean cell Hb (MCH), mean cell volume (MCV), mean cell Hb concentration (MCHC), total white blood cell (WBC-total) and differentials, and platelets|
|Function It can boost red blood cell production likely due to the presence of some nutritional constituents and its antioxidants.||Visible benefits The LG infusions increased PCV, Hb, and RBC in all subjects, particularly in the subchronic phase (30 days).|
