reinforcements or antioxidants. Antioxidants in vanilla protect your body from harmful radicals
and poisons. A lot of Ayurvedic vine and energy drinks contain vanilla essence because vanilla is a good supplement for sportsmen and body builders.
Another amazing thing about vanilla essence is that it is a good substitute for sugar. Put two or three drops of vanilla essence into your tea or coffee, your beverage will get as good as if you have added sugar. This is good for those who do not like to take sugar. This is also good for diabetic patients. Because though vanilla can make food and beverages sweet, it does not contain a lot of sugar.
Vanilla essence has this pleasant aroma that can calm one's mind. Maybe that is the reason why people crave for vanilla mixed ice cream and chocolate. Recent studies have found that vanilla can also help people who suffer from insomnia as vanilla mixed food induces sleep. It is also assumed that when vanilla essence is added to sweets it produces this chemical that makes people think that they have eaten a lot of sweets, that they are full.
