Many of us have busy and hectic lives. The constant demands of work, family and community can add up to unwanted stress and anxiety. Fortunately, there are natural foods and herbs that can help to relieve stress. One of these herbs is chamomile tea. How does it work? The website Forager Pro explains:
"Chamomile has a particular chemical within its oil it that is responsible for its chilling out effect. This compound is called apigenin. Apigenin binds to the same cell receptors that anti-anxiety drugs like Xanax do and provides a mild sedative effect. While Xanax is extremely addictive and has terrible side effects during withdrawal, Chamomile’s apigenin gives the body a moderate relaxing feeling and can change your mood from negative to positive with only good side effects! Drinking Chamomile each day (and night) has been proven to soothe your brain and help to calm your nervous system and reduce the adverse effects of depression, anxiety, and promote a restful sleep."(1)
How great is that? Who doesn't need less stress and anxiety in their life? So try some chamomile tea with honey and enjoy some all-natural relaxation therapy.
