Well, there’s good news for women.
A new study has found that just drinking chamomile tea reduces the mortality rate in women.
“Women who drank the tea were 29 percent less likely than their peers to die of any cause during the study,” the Elite Daily reported.
“This difference was still found even after demographics, health conditions, and health behaviors were accounted for. The researchers found this effect was not present in men,” the Medical Daily reported.
The Gerontologist, which published the study, stated: “Chamomile is a commonly used herb among older adults of Mexican origin. We examined the effects of herbal chamomile consumption on mortality among older adults of Mexican origin.”
Video on how chamomile tea reduces mortality in women and reduces other causes of death in women too:
Bret Howrey, study author and assistant professor in the UTMB department of family medicine, said to the Science Daily: “The reason for a difference in our reported findings between Hispanic women and men is not clear, although women were shown to be more frequent users of chamomile than men. This difference may be due to traditional gender roles whereby women manage the day-to-day activities of the household, including family health, and may also reflect greater reliance on folk remedies, such as herbs.”
I know I will be drinking more chamomile tea from now on.
