Chamomile is native to Europe. Dubbed the “star among medicinal species”, it has been used in herbal remedies for thousands of years. Anglo-Saxons believed it was one of nine sacred herbs God gave to humans. Its most important constituents are sesquiterpenes, flavonoids, coumarins, and polyacetylenes. Chamomile extract contains 11 bioactive phenolic compounds, such as herniarin, umbelliferone, chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid, apigenin, apigenin-7-O-glucoside, luteolin, luteolin-7-O-glucoside, quercetin, rutin, and naringenin.
Chamomile may be beneficial for colds, menstrual cramps, to treat inflammation, skin diseases, wounds, and ulcers. It may be beneficial for cancer, osteoporosis, diabetes, anxiety, and weight loss.
