Tarragon contains a large amount of beneficial nutrients and minerals such as protein, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, niacin, riboflavin, vitamin A and C, calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, and manganese.
The oils in tarragon trigger the body’s natural digestive juices, making it an excellent digestive aid not only as an aperitif (which helps spark the appetite), but also to digest food properly.
Some women who have suppressed menstruation find tarragon to be helpful. It’s promoted by herbalists to encourage menstruation and help maintain the overall health of the female reproductive tract.
Tarragon leaves are also known to have anti-inflammatory properties, making the heart vessels free from any kind of damage.
Tarragon leaves are rich in poly-phenolic compounds and dietary fibers, aiding the calorie to distribute into all organs of the body. This mechanism can lower the blood-sugar levels in diabetes patients.
