Someone asked me about Chamomile tea. This herbal blend is not one of my favorite teas; however, I wanted to find out why it is such a popular beverage.
Well, I found some information that has really piqued my interest. I might even be contemplating adding it to the pot!
The plant (Matricaria recutita) is native to Europe, North Africa, and the Mediterranean region. I found a long history of use for this mild botanical, as well as the growing guide from Happy DIY Home. Most interesting, it’s safe to use for long periods of time without any adverse effects. Be sure to consult your doctor.
Science Daily cites a study where researchers found over a 2 week period; that chammy tea drinkers experienced increased anti-bacterial activity in their urine. In simple terms, this means that chamomile can boost your immune system and fight illness. The study also found an increase in amino acids helping to alleviate muscle spasms and relax nerves.
This herb can help people suffering from stress, spasms, and cramps. Others found relief from intestinal discomfort and the reduction of gas. Therefore, drink this tea after meals to alleviate these symptoms.
Will I convert to drinking Chamomile tea? Perhaps, now that I know more about this lovely herbal tea.
