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.
Lemongrass contains 1-2% of essential oil on dry basis. One of the main constituents of the many different species of lemongrass (genus Cymbopogon) is citral. Lemongrass oil has been found to contain up to 75-85% citral. Lemongrass is also used as a folk remedy to promote sleep, relieve pain, boost immunity and also as bug repellent.

Green biotechnology extraction
Citral (monoterpene) which is also found in lemon peels, is the substance that gives lemongrass its distinctive aroma and flavor. Compared to all other plants, lemongrass contains the highest amount of citral. Citral is known to be a mixture of stereoisomers, geranial (E-isomer) and neral (Z-isomer). Lemongrass also contains various phenolic compounds and flavonoids that possess anti-inflammatory, antihypertensive and anti-diabetic effects by scavenging free radicals that cause adverse effects in the body.

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|
|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|
|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.
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|
|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|
It can boost red blood cell production likely due to the presence of some nutritional constituents and its antioxidants.
The LG infusions increased PCV, Hb, and RBC in all subjects, particularly in the subchronic phase (30 days).
