Chamomile Quality Story
German or true Chamomile (Matricaria recutita
) contains a range of essential oil components and high levels of flavonoids.
A wide variation in the levels of these constituents is found between different chemical races or varieties of Chamomile.
Some varieties do not contain alpha-bisabolol which is an important active component. MediHerb® has selected a variety of Chamomile which contains alpha-bisabolol for use in our products. alpha-bisabolol is detected by Gas Chromatography (GC).
Please be aware Roman Chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile = Anthemis nobilis
) can be an adulterant in, or substituted for, true Chamomile and should be avoided due to allergic reactions.
Suggested Use: 1 tablet 3 - 5 times daily, or as directed.
Caution: Contraindicated in known allergy to plants of the daisy family. Meadowsweet should be avoided by persons hypersensitive to salicylates. Not to be used during pregnancy and lactation unless otherwise directed by a qualified health care professional. For other contraindications and cautions consult your health care professional.
