Chemical ingredients include
Guaianolides matricarin and achillin, acetoxyachillin and leucodin (= desacetoxymatricarin), corresponding C-11 stereoisomers(a),(Z)-2-β-d-glucopyranosyloxy-4-methoxycinnamic acid (cis-GMCA), chlorogenic acid, (E)-2-β-d-glucopyranosyloxy-4-methoxycinnamic acid (trans-GMCA), quercetagetin-7-O-β-d-glucopyranoside, luteolin-7-O-β-d-glucoside, apigenin-7-O-β-d-glucoside, chamaemeloside, apigenin 7-O-(6″-O-acetyl-β-d-glucopyranoside), apigenin] and one polyacetylene (tonghaosu)(b).
In the finding, a natural ingredient for the treatment of anxiety with no side effects, researchers at the launched a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled and tolerability trial to examine Matricaria recutita (chamomile) extract activity in patients with mild to moderate generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).
Application of Matricaria recutita (chamomile) extract demonstrated a significantly greater reduction in the mean total Hamilton Anxiety Rating (HAM-A) score compared to placebo.
There are no intolerated adverse effects found in both groups.
Dr. Amsterdam JD, the lead author at the final report, wrote. "chamomile may have modest anxiolytic activity in patients with mild to moderate GAD".
Increased application of Apigenin by a 10-fold compared to normal concentrations display a mild sedative effect as seen on a 26% reduction in ambulatory locomotor activity and a 35% decrement in hole-board parameters.
