Chamomile probably won’t cure your insomnia

Chamomile is often associated as a natural insomnia remedy and regularly appears in lists of recommended herbal teas for insomnia. However, there haven't been many scientific studies undertaken that have investigated whether chamomile is actually effective at treating insomnia.

One recent study found that chamomile had NO effect when used to treat chronic insomnia.

The study involved 34 patients aged 18-65 who had suffered with insomnia for at least six months. Half were given 270mg of chamomile twice a day, and the other half were given a placebo.

At the end of the study, there were no significant differences between each group when measuring total sleep time, sleep efficiency, sleep latency (how long it took to fall asleep), sleep quality, number of awakenings during the night and how long it took to fall asleep after nighttime awakenings.

Sure, the study was small and further research needs to be done. However, it would appear that chamomile isn't the miracle natural insomnia treatment you were perhaps hoping it would be.
