The power of Chamomile
Chamomile is widely used throughout the world as it is one of the most known and earliest medicinal herbs that possess strong antioxidant, immune health and calming properties. Based on clinical studies, it is recommended for many ailments including fever, ulcers, muscle spasms, skin irritations and gastrointestinal disorders.1
Supporting digestive health with Roman Chamomile
Roman Chamomile, formally known as Chamaemelum nobile (syn. Anthemis nobilis) is one of the oldest known medicinal herbs that possess strong antioxidant, immune health and calming properties. It has been used traditionally to naturally promote restful sleep, respiratory and gastrointestinal health.2
The area of gastrointestinal health is one where Roman Chamomile can make a difference. Based on research, millions of consumers each year have gastrointestinal health issues. Roman Chamomile's multifaceted impact on the body’s inflammatory response (BioMap®substantiation) and smooth muscle relaxation effects3 make it an excellent fit for those with digestive woes. The science soundly backs up this statement. Studies have shown multiple benefits in the area of gastrointestinal health, including spasms, upset stomach, gas, and gastrointestinal irritation.4 Gastric biopsies and cytological studies have demonstrated the effect on supporting an impact on the inflammatory effects of chamomile on the stomach and duodenum.5 One of the key areas to positively impact those with gastric upset is in the arena of the impacting smooth muscle. The gastrointestinal tract is comprised mostly of smooth muscles, which, when they begin to spasm, can cause cramping, diarrhea, and nausea. A study by Sándor et al., published in Frontiers in Pharmacology stated, “The predominant effect of the extract, its fractions and flavonoids is relaxation, being more sustained than the transient contraction observed in some cases. This activity is in correlation with the flavonoid content of the extract.” 6
