Chamomile Tea has been used as a natural remedy to reduce inflammation and anxiety and to treat insomnia. Chamomile is commonly regarded as a mild sleep inducer as unlike many other teas, it lacks caffeine content. So instead of giving you a rush, it relaxes the nerves and muscles. Green Tea when combined with chamomile flowers aids in sleep and is therefore usually drunk after dinner before sleep. This brew also helps in controlling diabetes, reducing inflammation as well as menstrual pain.
Chamomile tea's calming effects may be attributed to an antioxidant called Apigenin, which is abundant in chamomile tea. Apigenin binds to specific receptors in your brain that may decrease anxiety and initiate sleep. Drinking chamomile tea may aid in lowering blood sugar levels. Chamomile can also help treat digestive issues, such as irritable bowel syndrome, diarrhoea, and colic.
