DOES CHAMOMILE TEA MAKE YOU SLEEPY?

Chamomile tea is known to be a relaxer and many consume chamomile before bed as it puts you in a relaxing mood and is thought to help you sleep.

Drinking chamomile tea before bed is certainly worth a try if you have trouble falling or staying asleep. Studies have shown chamomile to be effective in aiding with relaxation, and also helping with anxiety, depression, and insomnia.

You should drink one cup of chamomile tea about 45 minutes before bed if you’re hoping to induce sleepiness. That will give your body enough time to metabolize the tea, and the chemical compounds that cause those sedative feelings to kick in.

Chamomile tea helps to naturally increase serotonin and melatonin levels in your body, leaving you feeling relaxed without feeling drowsy. Plus, it can help relieve tension by soothing muscle aches and headaches often associated with stress and anxiety.

Customers love chamomile as a relaxing and go-to-bed drink. It’s important to keep in mind that while chamomile on its own is for relaxing and before bed, keep an eye to see if the tea is blended between chamomile and other herbs that may not be for bedtime, just something to keep in mind.
