Clove's Eugenol Helps Maintain Normal Gastrointestinal Motility


Emotional balance is of the utmost importance in maintaining a healthy body. Even ordinary events such as stress can result in changes to the normal workings of the body. For example, many times our gastrointestinal (digestive) tract lets us know that we are under stress. Recent findings (June 2015) in a peer-reviewed scientific journal demonstrate that eugenol, the chief component of Clove essential oil, assists the body in maintaining normal gastrointestinal motility even during times of stress.* The authors theorize that eugenol acts on stress-responsive regions of the brain, promoting balanced levels of stress-response hormones that are released throughout the body, which helps keep the gastrointestinal tract functioning properly.*
