1. High Source of Antioxidants
The main antioxidant components extracted from chamomile flowers are the terpenoid group of antioxidants, including chamazulene and acetylene derivatives. Because these delicate compounds are unstable, they’re thought to be best preserved in an alcoholic tincture or “essential oil” form. Other major constituents of the flowers include several phenolic compounds, primarily the flavonoids, including apigenin, quercetin, patuletin as well as various glucosides. (1, 2, 3)
These compounds lower inflammation by fighting free radical damage and preventing cell mutation. Chamomile benefits start with antioxidants that are associated with better immune function; lower rates of mood disorders; reduced pain and swelling; and healthier skin, hair, nails, teeth and eyes.
2. Fights Anxiety and Depression
Chamomile, whether in tea, tincture or essential oil form, is one the best medicinal herbs for fighting stress and promoting relaxation, according to research from Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine and Pharmacognosy Review. (4, 5) Inhaling chamomile vapors using chamomile essential oils is often recommended as a natural remedy for anxiety and general depression, which is one reason why chamomile oil is a popular ingredient in many candles, aromatherapy products and bath-soaking treatments.
In extract form, chamomile is frequently used as a mild sedative to calm nerves and reduce anxiety because its vapors travel directly to the olfactory part of the brain, turning off tension and reducing the body’s stress response. This is why practitioners use chamomile to effectively relieve symptoms of chronic anxiety and stress, including hysteria, nightmares, insomnia and various digestive problems. (6)
Smells are carried directly to the brain, and they serve as an emotional trigger. The limbic system evaluates the sensory stimuli, registering pleasure, pain, danger or safety; this then directs our emotional response, such as feelings of fear, anger and attraction. Our basic emotions and hormonal balance are in response to the most basic smell. Scents are a direct pathway to memory and emotion. Fragrances, like chamomile, relieve pain and generally affect personality and behavior. Research proves that using oil fragrances is one of the fastest ways to achieve psychological results.
3. Improves Digestion
Believed to be a powerful digestive relaxant, chamomile can be used to treat various gastrointestinal disturbances, including gas, acid reflux symptoms, indigestion, diarrhea, anorexia, motion sickness, nausea and vomiting. Chamomile extract can help shorten the course of diarrhea and colic in children as well as relieve symptoms associated with the conditions like pain and anxiety. Chamomile oil also contains anodyne compounds that are anti-spasmodic, reducing cramping, constipation and other stomach pains.
Many of these benefits are due to chamomile’s natural relaxing effects. Because the brain and the gut communicate directly back and forth via the vagus nerve, a more relaxed mind can also help heal leaky gut, which can mean reduced symptoms of chronic conditions like leaky gut, IBS and other gut-related issues. Chamomile benefits include mellowing effects also make it a good choice for pregnant women in order to relax the digestive tract and act as a natural remedy for nausea.
4. Has Strong Anti-Inflammatory and Pain-Reducing Abilities
Chamomile is sometimes called an “herbal aspirin” since it’s been a popular home remedy for lowering pain for centuries. Chamomile flowers are used alone or in combination with other anti-inflammatory foods to reduce pain, congestion, swelling and redness. They’re effective at reducing facial swelling, skin irritations, toothaches, pain from infections and underlying issues of inflammation. This is the reason chamomile extract is commonly added to beauty products like facial or body lotions, toothpastes, and bath soaps.
Chamomile can also naturally lower pain associated with arthritis, injuries, back pain, fevers and pregnancy. In fact, its pain-reducing qualities are even used to soothe the body and mind after giving birth. For example, in some parts of the world like Mexico, chamomile tea is given to women after labor to relax their abdominal muscles and help them rest.

For more than 25 years, Serrapeptase has been used by millions of people concerned about their health. Originally, Serrapeptase was exclusively used in Asia and Europe due to its anti-inflammatory activity, but when the benefits of this miracle enzyme spread, the US and many other countries began to use it for its wide range of benefits. For many the question still remains, what exactly is Serrapeptase and what are the benefits for which it has gained such enormous popularity? . . Serrapeptase is a proteolytic enzyme that is also known as serrapeptidase, serratiopeptidase, serratia peptidase, nicolase, the super enzyme, and the miracle enzyme. This enzyme is produced by non-pathogenic bacteria called Serratia sp. E-15 which is found in the intestines of silkworms. It was discovered that serrapeptase dissolves the cocoon walls that silkworms live in when they begin to transform into moths. Due to this discovery, it is theorized that this enzyme is capable of dissolving dead tissue without causing harmful side effects to an organism’s healthy cells. . . Health Benefits of Serrapeptase 1. Atherosclerosis Dr. Nieper found that serrapeptase promoted normal blood clotting and reduced the appearance of varicose veins. Other studies found that serrapeptase effectively removes atherosclerotic plaque without hurting any of the healthy cells along the arterial wall. 2. Soothes Redness Multiple studies confirm serrapeptase soothes redness and swelling. It promotes a calm, harmonious environment in the body at a cellular level. 3. Helps with Traumatic Injuries Serrapeptase is widely used in Europe as a supplement for traumatic injury (such as sprains and torn ligaments), as well as the swelling associated with post-surgical patients. 4. Pain, Edema, and Swelling Serrapeptase has been approved as a standard remedy in many European countries for swelling. A double-blind German study on the enzyme found that it could reduce swelling by up to 50% in post-operative patients. Patients taking serrapeptase experienced less pain than the control groups and, by the 10th day of the study, all patients taking the serrapeptase were completely pain-free. 5. Helps with Cystic Breast Disease In a double-blind study, serrapeptase was found to reduce breast pain, breast swelling, and induration in 85.7% of the patients taking the supplement. This is related to the fact that the enzyme possesses fibrinolytic, proteolytic and anti-edemic properties. 6. Helps Infections in the Ear, Nose, and Throat In one double-blind study, patients with acute or chronic ear, nose or throat diseases found significant symptom regression with serrapeptase. The enzyme can reduce the viscosity of mucous, thus facilitating drainage. 7. Helps with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Recent studies confirm the use of this enzyme for the reduction of symptoms associated with carpal tunnel syndrome. 8. Other Potential Benefits Serrapeptase is used for a vast array of applications for human health and disease prevention. This includes therapeutic use for nerve damage, Multiple Sclerosis, chronic ear infections, hay fever, lung congestion, swollen glands, laryngitis, rhinitis, chronic pain, arthritis, back and neck pain, diabetes, ulcers, osteoporosis, prostate problems, rheumatoid arthritis, sports injuries (both prevention and recovery), post-operative scars and lesions, varicose veins, arterial diseases, angina, blood clots, anti-aging, restoration of healthy fibrin metabolism and reduction in C-Reactive Protein.
