"The dried flowers of chamomile contain many terpenoids and flavonoids contributing to its medicinal properties. Chamomile preparations are commonly used for many human ailments such as hay fever, inflammation, muscle spasms, menstrual disorders, insomnia, ulcers, wounds, gastrointestinal disorders, rheumatic pain, and hemorrhoids." (From a study cited in Molecular Medicine Reports.)
Chamomile flowers resemble small daisies and smell of fresh apples: the word "chamomile" is derived via French and Latin from the Greek word khamaimēlon, meaning "earth apple."
The two types of chamomile used in most medicinal preparations are German chamomile (Matricaria recutita) and Roman chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile).
A 2012 study found that chamomile may target cancer cells, and possibly prevent them from developing in the first place. While the study wasn't conclusive, the total phenolic content and radical scavenging activity of chamomile were determined.
"Phenolic acids are readily absorbed through the walls of your intestinal tract, and they may be beneficial to your health because they work as antioxidants that prevent cellular damage due to free-radical oxidation reactions. They may also promote anti-inflammatory conditions in your body when you eat them regularly." ("How To Add Phenolic Acids In Your Diet", Very Well Fit)
