Chamomile Tea: The Secret Brew That Could Add Years To Your Life

There’s no better way to end the day than with a piping hot cup of chamomile tea, and not just because it can help you unwind.

New research shows it could save your life.

Women who drink chamomile are 29 percent less likely to die prematurely from any cause, according to the study published in the journal The Gerontologist.

The study didn’t find a benefit for men, but that might be because so few of the men who took part in it actually drank the stuff. In any case, there are plenty of other reasons for men and women alike to enjoy chamomile: It’s proven to prevent cancer, fight stress, boost the immune system and help you fall asleep.

I recommend organic German chamomile. It’s good anytime – hot or iced – but to get the sleep benefit, you’ll want to drink it before bed, of course.
