Chamomile May Help Improve Sleep Quality in Mature Adults

Many people suffer from sleep disturbances later in life. A recent study suggests that taking a daily supplement of chamomile extract may help improve sleep quality.


Participants in the study included 60 people with a mean age of 70 who were given either 400 mg per day of chamomile extract or a placebo for 28 days. The researchers used the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index to measure sleep quality immediately before the start of the study, at the two-week mark, immediately after the end of the study, and two weeks after the end. All of the participants had poor sleep quality at the onset of the study.


At the conclusion of the study, the researchers noted significantly improved sleep quality in the chamomile group, compared with the placebo group.


Researchers from Kashan University of Medical Sciences in Iran conducted the study. It was published in the December 2017 issue of Complementary Therapies in Medicine.


Chamomile is an herb that has been used in folk medicines for centuries. Previous studies suggest that it may help ease an upset stomach or menstrual pain and help with sleep. It is most commonly consumed as a tea but can also be taken as an extract, as was the case in this study.
