Iaso Tea claims that individuals who drink it will lose up to five pounds within five days.

There is also some research done on chamomile that suggests it may help lower blood sugar levels and aid in digestion health. Other studies have also shown that antioxidants when consuming chamomile play a significant role in the prevention of stress-related chronic diseases. The findings from the study also did indicate that chamomile boosts your immune system because of the free-radicals in the antioxidants.
