Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) is highly valued as a powerful herb in both culinary world and folk medicine. The ancient Greeks and Romans, however, also regarded thyme as a symbol of bravery and used to cleanse their temples and homes with bundles of burning thyme. Thyme was also used to preserve food and to prevent and treat food poisoning. But what else does thyme hide? Let’s take a closer look at this powerful herb!
Let’s start at the beginning – what is thyme?
Thyme is a semi-shrub that grows to a height of 30-40 cm, with slightly woody stems and narrow, strong leaves that are slightly rolled at the edges. However, at the tops of the stems you can see purplish pink or white flowers, which the plant bears from June to August. Preferring sunny habitats, thyme is native to the Mediterranean, North and West Africa. In Estonia, however, thyme is widely cultivated as a culinary herb because of its pleasant flavour and, of course, as a medicinal plant. Fresh thyme is often used to flavour various soups, stews and broths, and to make a healing herbal tea.
What is the healing power of thyme?
Thyme harbours truly powerful healing compounds, able to destroy various viruses and prevent and treat colds. This makes thyme a truly effective remedy for upper respiratory tract, bronchial and throat problems. Thyme’s antiseptic, antiviral, antibacterial and expectorant properties support the body’s healing process, enabling it to recover more quickly from any illness. Thyme is helpful in relieving coughs, fevers and various bacterial infections due to the thymol content in the plant. Thymol has strong antiseptic properties and its effects on various strains of bacteria have been confirmed by several scientific studies. However, in addition to thymol, thyme also contains carvacrol, which has antioxidant properties and has a tonic effect on the nervous system, boosts mood and, if consumed regularly, increases overall well-being.
In addition, thyme is an excellent helper in case of:
- sleep disorders;
- low mood and stress;
- digestive problems;
- food poisoning;
- prevention of damage caused by free radicals;
- eliminating pathogens from the body.
Because of its antiviral properties, thyme is also essential for the following conditions:
- Ebstein-Barr virus;
- chronic fatigue syndrome;
- Hashimoto’s thyroiditis;
- rheumatoid arthritis;
- multiple sclerosis;
- urinary tract infections;
- tinnitus, etc.
Regular use of thyme can help to significantly reduce the viral load in the body and get rid of distressing health problems. Thanks to its extremely high antioxidant levels, thyme also helps to destroy free radicals and thus protect the body from damage caused by free radicals.
