Organic Chamomile tea is a healthy beverage.
It is rich in some powerful antioxidants called flavones, that may have a variety of health benefits.
Flavones have been studied for their potential to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, which are important markers of your heart disease risk One study of 64 diabetic patients found that those who drank chamomile tea with meals had noteworthy improvements in their total cholesterol, triglyceride and “bad" LDL cholesterol levels, compared to those who drank water. More research is necessary to confirm chamomile tea's role in promoting heart health, but it certainly couldn’t hurt to include it in your diet.
Chamomile tea may protect against diarrhea, stomach ulcers, nausea and gas, likely due to its anti-inflammatory effects.
Chamomile contains antioxidants that may promote sleepiness, and drinking chamomile tea has been shown to improve overall sleep quality.
Chamomile contains the antioxidant apigenin. In test-tube studies, apigenin has been shown to fight cancer cells, especially those of the breast, digestive tract, skin, prostate and uterus
