Many people (myself included) turn to a cup of coffee to kick-start their day. If they even drink tea at all, it’s typically in the form of the sweetened iced variety, or reserved for cooler months. However, drinking more tea—chamomile specifically—has several benefits that’ll make you want to indulge in the beverage every day.
Let’s take a look at the top ten benefits of drinking chamomile tea.
1. Improves sleep
Many experts, including ones from the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC), say that chamomile tea has properties that help diminish stress levels and, in turn, improve sleep quality. While not scientifically proven in human studies, the tea is effective in animal studies. Besides, many people can attest to the tea’s ability to help them fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.
