Although one cup of tea a day is considered good for health, new research has shown that chamomile tea can extend the lifespan of women. Chamomile is an ancient plant, which is used in many medicinal treatments. One study has shown that chamomile intake is more beneficial for women. Regular intake of chamomile reduces the risk of untimely death in women.
It is also helpful in adjusting for women, health conditions and health behaviors undergoing demographic factors, whereas this effect is not seen in men. “The reason for the difference between women and men is unclear in our report, but it has been observed that women have more chamomile than men,” said Professor Brett Horry of the medical branch of the University of Texas in the US. Researchers during their seven-year study studied the effects of chamomile and causes of death among Mexican-Americans and found that 1,677 women and men who drink chamomile are over 65 years of age. The researchers, however, did not clarify what the relationship was between chamomile intake and mortality.
Recent research has shown that chamomile intake is helpful in the treatment of hyperglycemia, stomach upset, obesity problems, and nervousness. Chamomile is also considered an effective cholesterol control, antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antiplatelet. The research journal The Gerontologist is published in Oxford.
