Mechanisms of action
Apigenin – This flavonoid has gained prominence for its ability to minimise DNA oxidative damage, limit the growth of human cancer cells, and serve as an anti-inflammatory. Apigenin can be found in both chamomile flowers and oils, but only in the flowers.
Benefits of Chamomile
The anti-inflammatory effects of chamomile are well-known. The flavonoids apigenin, luteolin, and quercetin, as well as volatile oils like alpha-bisabolol and matricin, are all potent active substances.
Bisabolol: – Bisabolol has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-irritant, anti-fungal, and anti-allergenic properties. Both German and Roman chamomile essential oils contain bisabolol, however German chamomile essential oil has a larger quantity.
Chamazulene – Chamazulene is one of the azulenes and is only found in the essential oils of Roman and German chamomile. It is produced during the distillation process from matricin. The anti-inflammatory properties of chamazulene are attributed to it.
