Why We Include Chamomile in Our Soft Chews: The Many Benefits
Chamomile, one of the calming ingredients in our soft chews, is a commonly used herbal medicine.
We’ll briefly discuss each benefit associated with chamomile in this article.
Apigenin in Chamomile
A compound scientifically known as apigenin is found in chamomile. You can think of apigenin somewhat like an aspirin as it is known for the reduction of inflammation in the body.
Apigenin is known for dilating smooth muscles as well as producing anti-anxiety effects.
Apigenin and Cancer Cells
Research has found apigenin to significantly impact cancer cells. It’s known to ‘turn on’ apoptosis in the body (cell suicide). This helps your dog’s body kill cancer cells.
Apigenin is also known to slow angiogenesis (cancer cells are able to make their own blood cells) which makes it harder for cancer cells to ‘eat and survive.
If your dog has cancer, an alternative veterinarian may also inform you of studies which have been conducted showing apigenin is thought to reduce the effects of chemotherapy and radiation.
Chamomile for Canine and Feline Anxiety
Chamomile is a safe, mild herb that is often used to treat anxiety, or symptoms associated with anxiety, like the inability to sleep well.
Gastrointestinal Issues and Chamomile
Chamomile is known to be used for the following GI problems:
- Gas relief
Sometimes anxiety is triggered by GI problems as well, so that’s an extra benefit if your dog suffers from anxiety, hyperactivity, or nervousness.
Skin Problems in Dogs
Chamomile is known to reduce skin inflammation often caused by:
- Hot spots
- Fungal infections
- Bacterial infections
- And/or fleabites
