Uses & Effectiveness

Overview

Verbena is a plant. The parts that grow above ground are used to make medicine.

Verbena is used for mild gum disease (gingivitis), swelling (inflammation) of the nasal cavity and sinuses (rhinosinusitis), heart conditions, depression, and other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses.

In manufacturing, verbena flowers are used as a flavoring agent in alcoholic beverages.

Vitamin B6, found abundantly in bananas and avocados, helps produce serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates mood, sleep, and appetite, making it a natural mood booster!
