The sleep-inducing benefits of Chamomile tea are well known across the world. Our exciting new blend, Sleep is made up of 64% Chamomile combined with rose petals, lemon balm, hops, mallow flowers, valerian and lavender. 

Chamomile comes from the daisy flowers, a member of the Asteraceae family of plants, where its flowers are dried and steeped in water.  It will certainly get you yawning in the evenings! Chamomile has been used as a natural remedy for many generations, particularly, in improving sleep quality and is one of the world’s most popular herbal teas. 

Let’s consider some of the fantastic health benefits of Chamomile before you drift off!


1. Sleep-inducing benefits

The sleep-inducing benefits of Chamomile tea are well documented. Chamomile contains a phytonutrient called apigenin which is believed to have a sedative, relaxing effect. It does this by binding to your brain receptors that are associated with inducing sleepiness and reducing insomnia. So, give it a go the next time you fancy a relaxing snooze.


2. May be beneficial for sufferers of diabetes

Initial research indicates that Chamomile has been shown to help regulate glycaemic control, helping those with either type of diabetes and helping blood lipid profiles, by decreasing HbA1C. Although, more research is needed on this, it is definitely worth a try.

3. May aid your digestion

Digestion health is much more important than most people consider. Research suggests that Chamomile is anti-inflammatory, and particularly helps with soothing the stomach with symptoms such as nausea or gas. It has also been suggested that Chamomile reduces bacteria growth and acidity in the stomach, lessening the chance of ulcer development. Although these are early findings in research, it might just do the trick!

4. Heart

Chamomile is rich in flavones which are a great antioxidant. Flavones are suggested to help lower blood pressure and LDL cholesterol, allowing easier transport of blood around the body, reducing stress on the heart.

 

5. Potential Anti-Cancer properties

Apigenin is not only useful for sleep but has also been reported to fight off cancerous cells, helping to reduce cancer’s progression.¹

 

Chamomile is certainly a great herb and even better tea, now I’m off for a nice, long nap – I can definitely see why we call it Sleep – sweet dreams!

Charity, News

We are delighted to announce the return of our Remembrance Caddies, in support of the Royal
British Legion Poppy Appeal.

 

At Twist Teas we have always supported this worthy cause and feel it is particularly important this year, given the challenges we all currently face, to honour the men and women who served and continue to serve selflessly in our armed forces.

 

 

On a personal note, Remembrance Day holds a special place in our hearts at Twist Teas. Grandpa William (‘Bill’) was awarded with the Arctic Star. The Arctic Star is awarded to members of the British Armed Forces and Merchant Navy for services in World War II. Claire’s son William, named after his Great Grandpa, will proudly tell anyone, who has a minute, about the brave and selfless endeavours of those who served on Arctic convoys north of the Arctic Circle, and of the severity of the conditions they faced. Thank you to all the brave men and women from near and far who sacrificed so much for our freedom.

 

 

To purchase a Remembrance Caddy for yourself or as a gift, simply nominate the recipient’s name and select your favourite Twist Tea blend. The recipient will receive a personalised poppy caddy containing 50 Twist teabags and can order refills at a 20% discount.

 

All profits from this product go to The Royal British Legion.
