Bay leaves may help manage and treat diabetes by lowering your body’s blood sugar levels and increasing your body’s ability to produce insulin.

Bay leaves have powerful effects on the gastrointestinal system, stimulating urination as a diuretic, reducing toxicity in the body, and stimulating vomiting (as an emetic) when ingesting anything toxic. Bay leaves are beneficial for respiratory systems, by breathing in their steam, having an aromatherapy-like effect, and they may loosen up the phlegm and remove any harmful bacteria that might have been trapped in the respiratory tract.
