Want to decrease your risk of death by 29 percent? Just sip on some fresh Chamomile tea. According to a new research published in The Gerontologist Oxford Journals, drinking chamomile tea can decrease the risk of death from many causes in women over 65.

Chamomile is one of the oldest, most-widely used medicinal plant in the world which has been recommended for a variety of healing applications.

The study found that consuming chamomile was associated with a 29 percent decrease in risk of death from many causes among women compared with non-users, even after adjusting for demographic factors, health conditions and health behaviors. This effect was not found in men.

Many studies before have already shown chamomile’s potential benefits in treating hyperglycemia, upset stomach, diabetic complications and anxiety disorder. Chamomile has also been touted for its cholesterol-lowering, antioxidant, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and anti-platelet effects.
