The herbaceous plant has in fact anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-allergic, antispasmodic and sedative properties, it can be used in case of back pain, because it is able to relax the muscles, headaches, but also insomnia and anxiety states, panic attacks, but especially in case of food allergies, asthma, hives, hay fever, eczema, and generally all inflammatory disorders originated from allergy. The plant also seems to have anti-cancer properties, according to a British study carried out by the John Innes Centre and published in April 2016 on the journal Science Advances, but this research is still at an early stage and other studies should be performed in order to understand better the mechanisms and how it is possible to use the observed effects.
