Benefits of Chamomile Tea

Posted by Dr. Elsa Stokes on

The benefits of chamomile tea have been studied by man for centuries. In the Middle Ages, when it was first used as a tea, it was often drunk with bread or pastry. It is believed that during the medieval times women who used this tea would become more fertile because of the estrogenic substances found in it. It was also believed to help with blood circulation and headaches.

What are the health benefits of chamomile tea? Studies have shown that it has certain anti inflammatory properties, has an anti-cancerous effect, has an antispasmodic effect, has an antibacterial effect and can alleviate respiratory problems. Chamomile has also been found to have some anti-allergic properties, can help with menstrual distress, and is reported to be an appetite suppressant. It has a floral fragrance that is not overpowering, has very little taste, and has delicate, even leaves flowers.

 

What are the benefits of Chamomile for the skin? Chamomile has been found to have properties that help reduce wrinkles and improve the skin's elasticity. It has been recommended that you use chamomile to soothe your skin every night before going to bed. The flowers are said to relieve any itching you might be feeling. It can also help reduce acne and has an anti-fungal effect, meaning that it can help cure a number of conditions, including thrush. A cup or two of chamomiles could also be beneficial if you suffer from hay fever or other allergies.

 

How are the benefits of chamomile tea to relieve stress and help you sleep better? When you are stressed out, the levels of certain calming chemicals in your body rise. They are called noradrenaline and serotonin. These two chemicals work like an anti-depressant and seem to help alleviate stress. Some people drink chamomiles to alleviate stress and to sleep better at night.

 

Another of the benefits of Chamomile tea is that it contains anti-oxidants that improve blood sugar levels and lessen cholesterol levels. High blood sugars are believed to contribute to irritability, lack of concentration and mood swings, which can all lead to insomnia. Drinking this tea can also improve your sleeping habit.

 

Are there other health benefits to drinking Chamomile tea? One of the benefits of Chamomile is that it is a good source of anti-inflammatory vitamins, such as Vitamin C and E. It also contains high amounts of potassium, magnesium, and calcium. Other beneficial ingredients include magnesium and phosphorus. Some studies have shown benefits for Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and Parkinson's disease. The caffeine found in this tea may help reduce the risk of Alzheimer's.

What other benefits of chamomile tea are there? Many women swear by the benefits of chamomile for menstrual pain. Some women have even found relief from cramping, heavy bleeding, and overall pain. The anti-inflammatory properties of the flavonoids found in the chamomiles have been linked to an increased production of the natural pain killer endorphins.

 

While the flavonoid content of each capsule is not listed on the label of each serving, it is estimated that the maximum daily recommended amount of these compounds is 200 milligrams. This amount is considered to be safe for consumption. It seems that the benefits of chamomile may be partially due to the presence of anti-inflammatory compounds, as well as the reduction in menstrual pain.

 

Another benefit of chamomile tea that has been studied in scientific research is its effect on sleep quality. A study published in the Journal of American Science reported that a group of women who drank four cups a day of tea had a better sleep than a control group who were drinking a decaffeinated alternative. The researchers called this a clinically proven sleep aid. This is probably the most well-known scientific study conducted on chamomile tea. It is difficult to say if this was actually the result of the research, as the results of such studies are never completely understood.

 

The final benefit of chamomile tea is its claim to relieve stress. Tea has been found to be a very effective stress relief substance. In one study, participants who drank two cups a day of the herbal blend reported reducing their stress levels by an average of five. This is the equivalent of taking two relaxation medications. The compounds in the tea have even been shown to reverse the effects of chronic stress.

 

One of the last benefits of chamomile tea contains a substance that may help prevent cancer. A recent study found that drinking the tea reduced the levels of two pro-inflammatory chemicals, IL-1 and IL-2. These chemicals are involved in inflammation, which is associated with almost all cancers. The reduction in inflammation, according to the study, may lower the chances of developing certain types of cancer. This is one of the most promising results of a clinical trial involving the antioxidant properties of chamomile tea.
