We often hear about the antioxidant properties of camomile tea whenever we come across a devoted tea drinker. However, what most don’t realize is that camomile tea has a wide range of benefits that lead to improved health and a more fulfilling lifestyle.

Today, we’ve prepared this blog post to discuss the various benefits of camomile tea. Please excuse us if we sound like a bunch of tea merchants and seem like we’re pushing a product down your throat, but once you’re done reading this, you’ll see the benefits for yourself and run to buy a pack of camomile tea.

IMPROVED SLEEP AND MOOD

Camomile tea is packed with phytochemicals that have a range of effects on the brain and central nervous system. First and foremost, these phytochemicals affect serotonin and dopamine receptors in the brain, which have an effect on a person’s mood and help relieve depression. These phytochemicals also affect the gamma-aminobutyric acid receptors in the brain which promotes an overall sense of physical and mental calm.

Camomile also promotes the release of melatonin in the body which is responsible for inducing sleep. Melatonin regulates your sleep cycle and regular consumption of camomile tea can maintain this regulation and promote a healthy balance of the sleep-wake cycle.

ANXIETY

According to Phytomedicine, a medical journal, phytochemicals also help relieve anxiety and found camomile tea to have an effect in reducing symptoms associated with various anxiety disorders. Even though the evidence is preliminary, results do look promising and one can use camomile tea as a supplement in dealing with anxiety. In fact, many therapists recommend drinking camomile tea to their patients to promote a sense of calm and ease and to help with anxiety.

IMPROVED IMMUNE SYSTEM

Camomile tea helps in elevating hippurate levels in the body, which boosts the immune system by fighting various strands of bacteria. The first place where camomile tea fights bacteria is in the digestive tract, reducing the risk of various digestive ailments including diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting.

Camomile also has anti-inflammatory properties, helping to reduce pain and aches around the body. This property, combined with its antiseptic nature, is a reason why so many prefer to drink camomile tea when they’re down with the flu. These antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, along with the warmth of the tea also help with nasal and chest congestion.

MENSTRUAL DISCOMFORT

With all of the above-mentioned properties, camomile can have an impact on bloating, cramps, pain, and mood swings, all of which are common symptoms associated with menstrual discomfort. The anti-inflammatory property helps in managing pain and reduces swelling and bloating that one experiences during the menstrual cycle.

Furthermore, regular consumption of camomile tea results in increased levels of glycine, which reduces muscle spasms and relaxes the nerves. This helps with menstrual cramps and provides great comfort in such a difficult and challenging time. It also helps that camomile has a very comforting and soothing taste!

We hope the above convinces you to try out some camomile tea. To learn more interesting facts about this wonderful beverage head on over to tea-and-coffee.com.
