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.
