Health Benefit Teas-Day: Be Mindful of Chamomile

chamomileFeeling a bit anxious?  Stressed at work? Try steeping up some relief.

According to a recent study, people who ingested chamomile were much less likely to succumb to the stress.  The research, done by the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center, found that those who suffered from generalized anxiety disorder experienced significant relief from symptoms after ingesting chamomile for eight weeks, compared to folks who took a placebo.

The study then went on to conclude that chamomile may not only have an anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) effect, but also a “clinically meaningful” anti-depressant effect.

So drink some tea today – you’ll feel better!
