Drinking Chamomile Tea

Organic teas can be a rich source of beneficial compounds like polyphenols and flavonoids, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Simply sipping a cup here and there, without leading an accompanying healthy lifestyle, may not make a major difference in your health, but among people in Greece, many of whom follow a healthy Mediterranean diet, herbal tea turned out to be quite protective against cancer. Three types of herbal tea stood out for their anti-cancer potential, but out of the varieties (chamomile, sage, and mountain teas), chamomile took center stage, outshining the other two in terms of cancer prevention. It's likely that naturally occurring flavonoids, such as apigenin, are responsible for some of chamomile's anti-cancer effects. Apigenin, which is found in chamomile as well as in celery, parsley, fruits, and other vegetables and herbs, slowed cancer growth and shrank cancerous tumors in animal studies. When mice that were implanted with cells of a particularly deadly, fast-growing human breast cancer were treated with apigenin, the cancerous growth slowed and the tumors shrank.3 Blood vessels feeding the cancer tumors also shrank and restricted nutrient flow to the tumor cells, starving them of the nutrients needed to spread. A study conducted in 2011 also showed similarly promising results; when rats with breast cancer were treated with apigenin, they developed fewer tumors and had significant delays in tumor formation
