JAKARTA Drink reducer cholesterol and blood sugar easy to make at home. A review of research conducted by the Tea Advisory Panel (TAP) found compelling reasons to drink chamomile tea.

Chamomile is a popular herbal tea made from chamomile flowers native to southern and eastern Europe. A TAP review of research found chamomile tea offers several health benefits that reduce the risk of heart disease.

The review concluded that the drink can significantly reduce cholesterol and help lower blood sugar levels.

This is important because high cholesterol and blood sugar levels are the cause of heart disease. These findings emerged from a review that attempted to evaluate three herbal teas namely chamomile, rosehip and spearmint on women’s health problems.

The review identified randomized controlled trials (RCTs) from large international databases. RCTs randomly assigned participants to an experimental group or a control group to test a specific drug, treatment or other intervention.

“Because we wanted to evaluate the mechanism of action (i.e. how tea might work in different health problems), we also identified studies on teas and tea extracts that were carried out in the laboratory,” explained physician Gill Jenkins, study co-author and visiting advisor for TAP.

Overall findings from the RCT review also found chamomile to treat sleep deprivation and anxiety, both of which contribute to heart disease and brain decline.

“Increased sleep and anxiety can improve brain function due to better rest so it can be concluded that chamomile tea can indirectly improve brain function, although the direct effect of chamomile is calming without a direct effect on memory,” Jenkins said.

The NHS recommends limiting the amount of salt you eat to no more than 6 grams a day because too much salt will increase blood pressure. 6 grams equals one teaspoon.

High blood pressure increases the risk of heart disease by forcing the heart to work harder to pump blood throughout the body. You should also avoid foods containing saturated fat, because it will increase the level of bad cholesterol in the blood.
