Health benefits of Allspice leaf
Once employed by the Mayan Indians for embalming, extracts from allspice leaves and berries have been used in folk remedies and herbal medicine to treat digestive disorders and inflammatory conditions such as rheumatism, arthritis and neuralgia. Herbalists and aromatherapists use allspice to treat nervous exhaustion, arthritis, menstrual cramps, flatulence, diarrhea and indigestion. Oil from the leaves has commercial and cosmetic applications as well, and is commonly found in men's cologne. Allspice essential oil is used in aromatherapy to lift your mood and reduce fatigue.
Allspice is a carminative herb, capable of reducing gas and bloating. Herbal Facts notes that allspice's anti-inflammatory and pain-killing effects cause it be helpful as a topical treatment for arthritis and muscle pain, while its antiseptic and anesthetic properties may help relieve toothache. Allspice's antioxidant abilities are so potent that it has been used to preserve meat.
In a study published in 2010 in "Journal of Applied Physiology," researchers found that eugenol had potent anti-inflammatory effects, suppressing the expression of inflammatory agents such as cytokines and cyclooxygenas-2 -- or COX-2 -- in the lungs of mice with laboratory-induced inflammation resulting from endotoxins. The team noted that the mice treated with eugenol experienced significantly less inflammation and improved lung function over the control group, and noted that eugenol's antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects stemmed from the inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis.
Organic farming uses no pesticides or artificial fertilisers and works with nature to build the fertility and health of our soil while caring for our environment. Organic farming has a low carbon footprint. Pure and simple, just the way nature intended.
This product is naturally gluten, nut and soy free. Please bear in mind that we do pack a wide range of natural food products on shared equipment including nuts, seeds, grains and cereals. This includes sesame, peanuts, soy and gluten. While we do our best to avoid any kind of cross contamination, this can occasionally occur and any of our products may contain traces of these, unless we have specified the product is otherwise certified.
TWC source this product as Certified Organic (spec sheets available on request). We then pack it down in a yet-to-be-certified organic facility. This means it can't be sold as Certified Organic (just 'Organic'). We're in the process of gaining our very own organic certification and expect this will be complete by mid 2019. It's then that these very same high quality organic products will regain their 'certified' status on the TWC website. Some old labels may say Certified Organic on them. The product is no different whatsoever and the pack down area uses all organic cleaning agents. Clear as mud? ;)
