Chamomile is noted for its calming and relaxing effects on both the digestive and nervous systems.
Chamomile flowers may also have anti-inflammatory activity and may be beneficial in reducing allergic responses as it is recognised as a natural antihistamine.
In addition, Chamomile is known as being an ulcer-protective through its healing effect on the mucosa of the gastrointestinal tract. Please note that although Chamomile may help prevent ulcers it may not help heal them, see our Aloe Vera for healing properties for ulcers.

How to Administer
Dried herbs may be added directly to your horses dampened feed in their dry state. Alternatively, they may be made into an infusion (herbal tea) prior to use and the soaked herbs and liquid poured over the feed. By making an infusion prior to feeding, this is known to release more nutrients from the herbs and may increase the health benefits.
May be of benefit for improving or promoting health or production or performance. Consult your vet before treating any illness.
