What is Chamomile Tea Good For?
Once you begin your journey towards health, you spy a pattern.
With every decision intended to improve your physical health– taking the stairs, trading the french fries for fresh fruit– you begin to notice improvements in your mental health as well. This trend goes both ways; as you begin to lower your typical stressors, you also feel far fewer aches and pains.
By learning all the health benefits available within a single cup of chamomile tea, you can better embrace the power of good decisions. Follow our guidance, and use this mellow, soothing tea to improve the quality of your sleep, your immune system, and your life as a whole!
Often, when people express a series of seemingly unrelated ailments, their issues can all be tied back to a single problem: inflammation.
Though part of the natural cycles of life, when improperly triggered, inflammation can come hand-in-hand with a host of ailments, such as headaches, joint pain, back problems, and chronic fatigue. Consequently, many of chamomile tea’s benefits can be boiled down to its amazing anti-inflammatory properties.
It’s important to note that these anti-inflammatory powers are not immediate; however, indulging in a cup of steaming chamomile in the evening after work can help lower the stress-induced inflammation of the workday, easing your way into a relaxing night.
When most people think of chamomile tea, they think of a single thing: bedtime.
Chamomile is widely praised for its ability to naturally coax users into a deep, restful slumber. As such, it is often mixed into other tea blends, each of which spouts buzz words like “sleepy” or “cozy.”
This is for good reason! More so than nearly any other form of herbal tea, chamomile has been proven to lower rates of anxiety and stress, making it easier for chronic worriers to set their cares aside and drift off.
Many of chamomile’s benefits are proven less by scientific evidence and more by history, as millions of people have all reported the same positive experiences from chamomile tea over the course of centuries. Moreover, chamomile’s ability to alleviate digestive problems remains well-supported even within scientific research studies.
In recent years, a series of studies showed that rats given chamomile tea experienced lower rates of digestive issues afterward. Similarly, another study showed that chamomile had the power to reduce stomach ulcer rates, lowering stomach acidity and preventing the bacteria that so often leads to this problem.
Whether you’re looking for a cure to your nausea or hoping to prevent the issue before it begins, chamomile tea is the answer you’ve been looking for!
There’s no way around the facts; mental health is every bit as important as physical health.
Thankfully, chamomile tea is every bit as helpful in this area as well! By lowering rates of ambient stress and encouraging you to “slow down,” chamomile can provide a moment of peace on an otherwise hectic day.
To make the most of every cup, we suggest incorporating this drink into your routine after work, either by popping in with us or at home.
Remember, don’t rush the process; instead, focus on every step that stands between you and your nighttime cup. As you boil your water and allow your tea to steep, resist the urge to scroll through your phone. As you lift the cup to your nose, take a moment to breathe in the floral aroma.
This is more than a cup of tea. This is a moment for reflection and gratitude.
