What secondary plant substances does chamomile contain?

Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla) contains a variety of active ingredients, including:

  • Flavonoids: These antioxidants help fight cell damage caused by free radicals and can reduce inflammation.
  • Apigenin: A flavonoid that can have a calming and anti-inflammatory effect.
  • Bisabolol: A natural essential oil that has anti-inflammatory and calming effects.
  • Chamazulene: A blue pigment that can have anti-inflammatory and calming effects.

Due to its calming active ingredients, chamomile is often used as a natural remedy to relieve symptoms such as anxiety, stress, restlessness and insomnia. It is also used to relieve inflammation and pain in muscles and joints. Chamomile has a mild, floral and sweet taste. Chamomile tea has a slightly bitter-sweet taste and there is also a slightly minty note. The taste can vary depending on the variety, when the chamomile flowers were harvested and how they were processed. Adding honey or lemon makes the taste of chamomile tea even more pleasant.
