Chamomile

Flower power

Peter Rabbit’s mother gave voice to the folk loric wisdom that chamomile tea is good for “the nerves” when she gave Peter some of the beverage after an incident in Mr McGregor’s garden. Now in an evaluation for the Faculty of 1000 researchers have drawn attention to a randomised, controlled trial for the use of chamomile to treat generalised anxiety disorder (GAD). People with mild to moderate GAD were given either chamomile or a placebo. Apigenin is one of the components in chamomile that is thought to yield its calming effects, acting in a similar way to benzodiazepines. In the study the chamomile was given in the form of 220mg capsules with 1.2 per cent apigenin. Chamomile showed improvement beyond placebo and may have modest anti-panic activity as well as having no side-effects. Looks as though Mrs Rabbit, or is it all mothers, knew what she was about.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
