7 teas for better digestion

Consciously or not, we often allow ourselves to eat more around the holidays. Therefore, you can add a cup of tea to the more abundant menu for better digestion. See which teas improve digestion

I have always had both respect and fear when it comes to herbs. They can be faithful helpers, but also dangerous enemies. It is important to always read this and that before drinking a particular tea. This, of course, applies to chamomile, linden blossom and other mass-consumed ones. But if you start regular and systematic intake of a given herb, you should first get to know its "light" and "dark" side.

Young children, pregnant and breastfeeding women should drink most teas with caution or avoid them if they are unsure of their safety.

Herbs have side effects and it is good to familiarize yourself with them in advance in order to take measures as soon as the first symptoms of discomfort appear.

Teas can help you with irregular stomach, constipation, heartburn and other stomach problems. Before you start taking teas for better digestion, find out how often and in what quantity to drink them.

1. Mint tea
Peppermint tea is perfect for stomach problems because of the menthol contained in the herb. It is especially useful for heartburn because it helps the stomach process food and reduces bloating.

Infuse 10 leaves of fresh mint (or 1 bag of ready-made tea) in 250 ml. boiling water for 10 minutes.

2. Ginger tea

Ginger tea is highly recommended for weight loss. It improves digestion by accelerating the work of the stomach and stimulating the metabolism. It is especially recommended for people suffering from chronic constipation.

Pour 1 tbsp. grated fresh ginger with 250 ml. boiling water for 15 minutes. Strain before drinking.

3. Ginseng root tea

There are studies that show that for more than a millennium, people have used the herb gentian to treat various conditions. Juniper root can be your faithful helper for better digestion. It contains iridoids, which stimulate the production of digestive enzymes and acids. There is also research that proves that gentian root improves blood supply to the digestive system.

Pour in 1/2 tsp. dried gentian root with 250 ml. water for 5 minutes. Strain and drink. It is recommended to drink the root of gentian before meals once a day or once every two days.

4. Fennel tea

Fennel tea is very well known in our country precisely because of its ability to improve digestion. Until recently, it was a preferred remedy to combat baby colic. Fennel tea helps with constipation because it acts as a laxative.

Pour 1 tsp. fennel seeds with 250 ml. boiling water for 10 minutes. You can replace the fennel seeds with grated fennel root (more popular recently as fennel)

5. Angelica tea

Angelica is a flowering plant that is entirely used by herbalists. However, only the root improves digestion. It is believed to help reduce the damage caused by oxidative stress in people with colitis.

Pour 1 tbsp. dried angelica root with 250 ml. boiling water for 5 minutes. Strain and drink

6. Dandelion tea

Besides beautifying lawns in cities and beyond, dandelions can help improve your digestion. Dandelion tea increases stomach acid production and protects against inflammation.

Pour 1 tsp. dried dandelion flower with 2 tsp. water and let it steep for 5 minutes. Strain and drink.

7. Black tea
Black tea contains thearubigins, ingredients that improve digestion, as well as theaflavins, which act as antioxidants and protect against inflammatory processes in the stomach.

Pour 1 bag of black tea with 250 ml. boiling water and infuse for 5 minutes.
