Thyme: Properties and benefits

Thyme is a plant with truly interesting beneficial and therapeutic properties. It has antispasmodic and protective properties of our digestive system. It acts effectively to decongest and fight inflammation of the respiratory system (especially bronchitis, pneumonia, etc.). It also has anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal properties, very useful for fighting bacteria and fungi in our body (especially in the intestine where it effectively fights the proliferation of pathogenic bacteria and therefore prevents states of dysbiosis). It also has the ability to protect the heart and stabilize blood pressure and is therefore particularly useful for our cardiovascular system as a whole. It is a powerful antioxidant and is therefore able to fight the oxidative process of free radicals and the premature aging of our body. Recent studies have shown that, due to all the benefits it is able to bring to our organism, this precious plant has preventive properties against various types of neoplasms (tumors).
