Considered to be one of the most ancient and versatile medicinal herbs known to mankind, dried chamomile flowers have numerous, widespread health benefits thanks to
their high level of disease-fighting antioxidants like terpenoids and flavonoids. Chamomile’s vital antioxidants are found in the plant’s potent oils and are the main contributors to its
natural healing properties. An effective alternative medicine with almost no known negative side effects, chamomile has been used for nearly 5,000 years in standardized tea, herbal
extracts and other forms to promote tranquility, vitality, and longevity. The fact that chamomile is an anti-anxiety and anti-depression herb was confirmed by a clinical study at the
University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. This study was done in 2009, but its data and findings were re-investigated and confirmed last year (2017).
