Laurel or noble laurel (Laurus nobilis) is a shrub very common in the Mediterranean areas.
Laurel leaves and fruits, in culinary preparations, truly support digestive tract functions. They increase appetite, stimulate lazy stomachs and reduce aerophagia.
In medicinal perspectives, Laurel leaf is also an antiseptic, antifungal and antibacterial. To soothe pain related to chronic respiratory disorders (bronchitis, sinusitis) or in case of flu and colds, laurel is recommended for its expectorant and antiviral properties.
