Anxiety Relief & Stress and Mood Management
Silver Linden flowers tea health benefits include calming anxiety, gently lowering blood pressure, and significantly improving mood.
All of this makes Silver Linden a great herb to have around in times of stress. Linden has a calming effect on the nervous system and can also aid sleep, relieve a tension headache, and ease an upset stomach.
Silver Linden flowers have these powerful benefits because they contain an essential oil composed partly of an alcohol sesquiterpene called farnesol, which has sedative and antispasmodic properties.
Digestive System Support
Due to its antispasmodic properties, Silver Linden helps in reducing the inflammation in the gut and, therefore, manages an upset stomach.
Silver Linden flowers also help in the treatment of constipation, gas, bloating, cramping, diarrhea, and symptoms of ulcerative colitis and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Reduces Pain and Inflammation
The powerful anti-inflammatory properties in Silver Linden flowers (quercetin-3, 7-O-alpha-dirhamnoside and kaempferol-3,7-O-alpha-dirhamnoside) help treat many inflammation conditions, such as spasms and muscle aches, headaches, joint pain, arthritis, itchy skin, gout, and wounds that are caused by poor blood circulation.
Silver Linden contains a few antioxidant compounds like rutoside, tiliroside, and chlorogenic acid. These potent agents tend to keep blood pressure level in check, protecting your cardiovascular health and treating hypertension.
Silver Linden is also used to treat a rapid heartbeat, to prevent blood clots, and reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, atherosclerosis, heart attacks, and strokes.
