We get that your day to day life is busy - between juggling work life, family, commitments, holidays, etc… Unfortunately, because of the busyness of daily life, our priorities for health can fall to the wayside. All too often we can make poor choices when it comes to our self-care; whether its unhealthy food options, too much caffeine, overeating, or food sensitivities- these can all wreck havoc on the digestive system. It is a vicious cycle that will lead to exhaustion, illness, and stress on your body- causing you to in turn consume more coffee, and unhealthy or “convenient” foods. If you’re feeling tired, sluggish, bloated, or unwell, maybe it’s time to try a digestive tea. When it comes to digestive health, herbal teas are a comforting, natural, holistic option; as tasty as they are effective!
Many true teas (meaning teas produced from the camellia sinensis plant) are excellent for digestive health as well, but if you’re looking for a caffeine free, a kid-friendly option, or something for the evening hours; herbal blends are a great option that have long been consumed as a natural digestive aid!
Herbs have been consumed as tea since mankind was created! Historical accounts show us that different cultures have incorporated herbal teas to their lives for centuries.
We will focus on a few of the most popular herbs that you will find in our digestive aid herbal blends.
Peppermint tea is a classic! It is known to promote digestion, ease stomach inflammation, and prevent diarrhea. Peppermint also prevents gas, bloat, and indigestion.
Fennel tea If you are constipated, or struggle with bloat, fennel tea is the answer to your problems! It is a natural diuretic, and will help cleanse your body- encouraging the natural elimination process.
Ginger tea’s claim to fame is its digestive and upset stomach healing qualities! A cup of ginger tea will soothe discomfort, and provide quick relief for an ill-feeling stomach.
Chamomile tea reduces inflammation of the lining of both the stomach and the intestines. It is known to relax the muscles, and soothe an irritated stomach after eating unhealthy foods or overeating.
Chai Blends are full of Ayurvedic spices that are great for digestion. Cinnamon may help relieve a variety of digestive ailments, such as gas, indigestion, heartburn, stomach cramps and nausea. Many chai blends also include ginger (*see above for benefits), and cardamom. Oils naturally present in cardamom have been proven to soothe the stomach and intestines, making cardamom an ideal solution for a host of digestive problems, such as constipation, dysentery, and indigestion.
We wish you all the best in absolute health!
