7 Amazing Thyme Benefits

The interesting health benefits of thyme include its ability to relieve stress, reduce respiratory issues, improve heart health, boost the strength of the immune system, protect against chronic diseases, stimulate blood flow, and prevent fungal infections.
Thyme is an evergreen shrub that has been used in medicinal and culinary applications for thousands of years. The most common form has the scientific name Thymus vulgaris. This herb is native to the Mediterranean region and certain parts of Africa, and its use dates back to the Egyptian empire.

Health Benefits of Thyme
Let's take a detailed look at some of the health benefits of this shrub.

Anti-fungal Ability
The most active ingredient found in thyme is thymol. This organic compound has a wide range of effects on the body, including its ability to [1] prevent fungal and viral infections, thereby reducing strain on the immune system.

Antioxidant Capacity
With one of the highest antioxidant concentrations in any herb, thyme has been praised for thousands of years as an overall health booster. The phenolic [2] antioxidants found in thyme, including lutein, zeaxanthin, and thymonin contribute to neutralizing and eliminating free radicals throughout the body. Free radicals are the dangerous by-products of cellular metabolism that can do major damage to your healthy cells by causing apoptosis or spontaneous mutation. These antioxidants help prevent oxidative stress present in your organs, as well as your neural pathways, heart, eyes, and skin.

Improves Circulation
The high concentration [3] of iron and other essential minerals in thyme make it ideal for stimulating the production of red blood cells, thereby boosting blood circulation and oxygenation to the essential organ systems of the body.

Protects Heart
The rich blend of antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins in thyme have many small effects on the heart, but potassium and manganese are particularly important. Potassium is a vasodilator, meaning [4] that it can reduce the stress on the cardiovascular system by relaxing blood vessels and lowering blood pressure. This can extend your life by preventing atherosclerosis and avoiding strokes, heart attacks, and coronary heart diseases.

Eye Care
The concentration [5] of carotenoids and vitamin A found in thyme make it an effective antioxidant agent for your vision health. Carotenoids can neutralize the free radicals in your ocular system and slow the onset of macular degeneration and prevent cataracts.

Boosts Immunity
The high levels [6] of vitamin C found in this herb make it a natural immune system booster. Vitamin C stimulates the production of white blood cells, which are the first line of defense in the body*s immune system. Vitamin C also plays a crucial part in the production of collagen, which is essential for the creation and repair of cells, muscles, tissues, and blood vessels.

Reduces Stress
One of the vitamins in thyme (B6) has a powerful effect on certain neurotransmitters in the brain that are directly linked [7] to stress hormones. Regular inclusion of thyme in your diet can help to boost your mood and ease your mind when stressful thoughts come calling.

Treats Respiratory Issues
One of the most well-known and long-standing uses of thyme in traditional medicine is as a respiratory agent [8]. If you are suffering from bronchitis, chronic asthma, congestion, colds, flu, blocked sinuses or seasonal allergies, thyme acts as an expectorant and an anti-inflammatory substance. It eliminates phlegm and mucus from the respiratory tracts, eases inflammation to help breathe, and prevents microbial development that can lead to illness. Brewing thyme leaves into a powerful tea is the best way to achieve relief from respiratory ailments.

Info hwy topic title
Angels are our guardians and guides. They are divine spiritual beings of love and light that work with humanity to help us in this lifetime. Guardian angels are unique to each person; we each have our own team. For some people this may be one angel, for others, it may be many, and you can always ask for more if you feel the need.
The Angels respect your free will and won*t directly interfere in your life unless asked, or if your life is in danger before your time. When you ask for guidance, your angels will communicate through your intuitive feelings and a variety of other ways.
When you are uncertain about a decision, you can always ask them for a sign to confirm your feelings. Signs of the angels help us feel a direct connection, enhancing our intuition and giving us the confidence to move forward.
The meaning of the word *Angel* is a messenger; communication and guidance are their specialties. Messages from your angels are always for your highest good; guiding you to your dreams, your purpose, happiness, joy, and peace. Your guardian angel(s) are excellent counselors; think of them as your very own Divine Life Coaches.
Their guidance is truly for your best interests, always positive, unconditionally loving and very honest, but never judgmental or negative. You can always count on your angels for the best advice, counsel, and information available.
With a new month approaching, there is an opportunity for us all to receive Angel Guidance to make May an incredibly prosperous and successful month. April was a month of shifting energies, letting go of what no longer serves our collective highest good to make room for a new paradigm and a new understanding of ourselves.
The upcoming month promises to bring each of us amazing opportunities for growth, abundance, and positivity in all areas of our lives if we understand how to harness its potential.
The Angels want to help us thrive like never before, giving us guidance, support, and inspiration to dream bigger and step farther into purpose.
You cannot create the life of your dreams unless you know what you want. A vision board that represents how you want your life to look, feel and defines what is important to you will kick start the manifesting for May.
It also sets the tone and helps you be much more discerning in all areas of your life, allowing you to set healthy boundaries and live authentically.
Start with a blank bulletin board and add pictures, quotes, words and items that reflect your vision for all areas of your life; including Life Purpose, spirituality, abundance, self-love, relationships, travel, material desires, etc*
You cannot improve your financial situation if you do not fully comprehend what it currently is. Money is simply a form of energy. How you invest (not spend) it sets the tone for your level of abundance and wealth.
Prosperity is your birthright, you cannot fully tap into its unlimited potential if you do not fully understand your current habits.
Knowledge is power, tracking all money that comes in and out will tremendously help you invest this form of energy in ways that align with your Life Vision.  This raises your energy vibration and helps make you a manifesting magnet for increased income streams.
Your dreams will only be created by receiving the help of others (including your Angels). If you are not comfortable with stating your needs, setting intentions, receiving or asking for help, you will create roadblocks with your restrictive energy.
When you resist receiving, even something as simple as a gift or a compliment, you block the reciprocal give and take nature of energy, making it challenging to receive ideas, inspiration, opportunities, resources, motivation and just about everything needed to manifest.
Without open-hearted receiving, anything you actually give is out of balance and likely not unconditional (without expectation).
4. LET GO.
Surrender is the path to manifesting. Letting go of the need to control, be it through expectations or worry or impatience, allows the Angels to work their magic on your behalf..We also need to let go of anything that consistently, negatively impacts our energy; from relationships to possessions, if it isn*t bringing you joy or value in some way consider letting it go.
Stop playing it small, safe and scared! May is the month to constantly step outside your comfort zone; it is time to raise the bar every single day.
If your dreams feel safe and secure, they are not big enough. This is not about being frivolously unrealistic, it is about giving voice to what you truly want instead of what you are willing to settle for out of fear.
