Herbal tea has long been promoted as a cure for minor ailments such as inflammation. It is also believed to have a sedative effect. New research reports that chamomile tea may help fight infections caused by colds as well as relieving menstrual cramps. In the study, the consumption of five cups of chamomile tea daily for two weeks resulted in increased urine levels of huppurate and glycine. Hippurate is believed to have antibacterial properties and glycine helps to relax nerves and thus alleviate muscle spasm and cramping. The levels of these two compounds remained high for two weeks after consumption stopped thus providing longer lasting benefits.
