Herbal Teas: Your Weapon Against Bloating
In our world full of foods high in saturated fat, salt and carbonation, bloating is often soon to follow. These foods, along with water retention and hormones are often the cause of intestinal pain and discomfort, plus that extra bit of belly bulge you’d prefer to send back where it came from.
Herbs and extracts have for thousands of years been a source of relief for ailments all over the map, including intestinal bloat and gas. Herbal tea, the easiest way to ingest these benefits, can be a lifesaver when it comes to beating the bloat. Peppermint and chamomile both have delightful medicinal properties that sooth the stomach and intestines, numbing pain, easing the muscles in the digestive tract, and helping gas dispel quickly and easily.
To get the most out of these teas, use a tea bag or one measured teaspoon of dried leaves per cup of boiling water, steeping the leaves for 10 minutes. Drink as many cups as you like! You’ll notice that the tea will quickly calm and settle your body, allowing you to relax free from discomfort.
