Why You Should Start Drinking Chamomile Tea

Regarded as one of the most ancient medicinal herbs, Chamomile tea is filled with properties that have been used for remedial purposes. Relieving ailments such as muscle spasms, insomnia, and inflammation, Chamomile tea is notably known to help one relax and unwind as it’s known as a mild sedative. In fact, it’s for this very reason that Chamomile is used within essential oils when doing aromatherapy. But what exactly are the benefits of drinking Chamomile tea and why should you start drinking it?

Below we list four reasons why Chamomile tea is a popular choice for many when choosing a herbal drink:

Reduces Inflammation

When your body attempts to fight an infection, your immune system reacts and causes inflammation. Chamomile tea consists of anti-inflammatory properties and has been used for centuries as a way to reduce inflammation. What’s more, Chamomile tea is known to reduce the effects of acne and skin irritation.

Helps You Relax and Sleep

There’s good news for those looking for a more natural way of falling to sleep. Chamomile tea is well known for its sedative properties which have helped treat conditions such as insomnia. The tea is regarded by many to be a powerful sleep-inducer as its aroma and taste go a long way in ensuring that sleep quality is improved.

Helps With Digestion

While there is a range of medicines out there that helps with flatulence, upset stomachs and digestive disorders, Chamomile tea is one of the ways of alleviating much of this. Due to it being antispasmodic, it helps ward off spasms within the stomach and intestines. What’s more, those faced with IBS, reflux and diarrhoea should make it a point to drink Chamomile tea as it has a soothing and calming effect on the body.

Helps Reduce Anxiety

While the research is young in this area, studies have shown that Chamomile tea can reduce high levels of anxiety. However, this is mainly for those faced with moderate-to-severe symptoms of anxiety. As Chamomile tea acts as a natural sedative, it helps relax the body and nerves which consequently affects one’s mental well-being.
