“Terragon is an herb that is popular in the world of cooking. In fact, tarragon is such a vital part of French cuisine that it is one of the “Fines Herbes.” These are the four most commonly used herbs in French cuisine, which also includes parsley, chervil and chives.1 Tarragon is known for its slightly bittersweet flavor, with an aroma similar to anise.”

Promote Reproductive Health in Females

Tarragon can help maintain a healthy female reproductive tract, and may also help women deal with suppressed menstruation.

Improve Intestinal Function

Tarragon is a vermifuge, meaning it can help expel parasitic worms from the intestines. As a result, this lowers your risk of developing intestinal ailments and malabsorption.
