Chamomile is a medicinal plant that, in addition to serving very well as a calming agent in digestive problems due to its anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect, helps regulate menstruation and reduce pain caused by menstrual or premenstrual symptoms.
Women contain estrogen, female hormones that promote vital processes such as menstruation, and chamomile helps in this process due to its estrogenic action.
