Benefits and properties of Chamomile for your health
Helps you sleep: Combats insomnia
If you have trouble sleeping at night, drinking a cup of hot chamomile tea might be a good opportunity. This has been the most popular natural solution for insomnia, a 2009 study revealed. People who use chamomile as a sleep aid have more health-promoting habits compared to people who use prescription drugs, such as sleeping pills.
You can sleep better by drinking a cup of chamomile because it has calming and sedative effects. It relaxes your body, so it prepares you to sleep better at night. So, the best way to cure insomnia is to drink a cup of warm chamomile before going to sleep.
Reduces anxiety and stress
If you feel anxious all the time, calm your nerves with a cup of chamomile tea. According to several studies, chamomile has anti-depressant activity that can help reduce anxiety and depression. Results show that participants who have taken chamomile have a greater reduction in their Hamilton Depression Rating (HAM-D) scores.
This hypnotic reaction is caused by the flavonoid apigenin found in chamomile. This flavonoid combines with benzodiazepine receptors in the brain, giving the same relaxing effect as anxiety-reducing drugs.
Promotes better digestion
Chamomile is known to be a potent digestive relaxant, which is why it is commonly used to treat various gastrointestinal problems, such as diarrhoea, indigestion and vomiting. It contains anodyne compounds that are used to relieve stomach aches and constipation.
All these digestion-related benefits are due to its natural soothing properties. Since the brain and stomach have a direct link through the vagus nerve, a peaceful mind leads to better intestinal health.
Antioxidant power: Fights free radicals
Chamomile tea is rich in antioxidants that can help fight the damaging effects of free radicals in your body. Among the antioxidants found in this wonderful tea are apigenin, chamazulene and chlorogenic acid. These antioxidants help alleviate inflammation that can result in serious diseases.
In a study conducted by the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, results show that chamomile contains a neuroprotective mechanism that may help minimise the harmful effects of oxidative stress. Antioxidants also contribute to younger-looking skin. For best results, drink a cup of chamomile tea at least twice a day.
Relieves Migraine Pain
If your migraine is caused by stress, chamomile will help relieve the pain. Remember that chamomile has calming effects that slow down the activity of your nervous system. This relieves tension from your body resulting in a calm state.
Another reason why chamomile tea works as a great pain reliever for migraine is its ability to relieve pain and inflammation. But you should not expect drinking one cup to eliminate the pain immediately. You need to drink more cups throughout the day.
Relieves arthritis pain
Arthritis is characterised by inflammation of the joints. It usually begins to manifest itself as the body ages. The natural way to cure this pain is to use chamomile tea, which is known for its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.
