Eases Menstrual Cramps:
Camomile tea has been known as a soothing remedy for menstrual cramps for many years, and current research has uncovered the science behind this tea’s ability to lessen cramps at this time of the month.
Enjoying camomile tea regularly increases levels of the amino acid glycine in your body, and higher levels of glycine may help to ease menstrual cramps by reducing muscle spasms and encouraging your body (including the uterus) to relax.
And, with camomile’s gentle sedative effects, as well, you’ll be feeling better in no time!
Provides Antioxidant Protection:
Camomile tea is a very rich source of antioxidants. Not only do antioxidants fight inflammation and protect against chronic disease (such as cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and rheumatoid arthritis), but they work to slow the ageing process and reverse the visible signs of ageing (like wrinkles and loss of skin elasticity), as well.
Benefits For Type 2 Diabetes:
Camomile tea can substantially lower blood glucose levels, and this herbal tisane can also help prevent or improve many of the complications that can accompany type 2 diabetes, such as kidney damage and vision loss, as well.
Even if you don’t have diabetes, this herbal tea is a wise preventive choice… Camomile tea works to stop the progression of hyperglycemia, which can protect you against developing diabetes and encourage healthy organs and blood vessels, too.
Consider steeping and enjoying a cup of camomile tea to soothe the pain and swelling of rheumatoid arthritis, relieve hay fever, reduce and soothe painful hemorrhoids, heal periodontitis, ease inflammatory bowel disease (such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis), and help to manage other chronic inflammatory conditions.
Drinking a cup of camomile tea (or simply gargling with cooled camomile tea) can encourage healing of and bring soothing relief to painful gums, gingivitis, canker sores, and toothaches.
So, what are you waiting guys….go and make your self a cup of Camomile Tea!
