Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla) has been defined as "Alles zutraut" by the Germans, to mean "capable of anything" because of their perception that chamomile can assuage many health concerns. The active ingredients are present in the fundamental essential oils from the flowers of chamomile.
Research has verified that apigenin is the factor responsible for chamomile's anti-inflammatory, calming, mildly calmative and anti-spasmodic results. Other materials in the plant, along with Azulene, Chamazuline, Bisabolol and Matricine also have anti-inflammatory effects.
Taken internally, Chamomile supports duodenum lesions and other digestive issues including poor digestion, chronic inflammation of the stomach, indigestion, and gas. The flavonoid called apigenin has been regarded for its calmative virtues and ability to urge relaxation. Accordingly, chamomile is a popular herb used to help support and help fight anxiety, restiveness, stress and sleeplessness.
