It isn’t pleasant if you are bloated and have gases, right? If this problem persists for a long time, cramps and pain can occur and digestion can also slow down. It is obvious that your digestion isn’t ok. If the digestion is irregular, you will feel bad and your skin and general health will suffer.
Fortunately, there are teas that you can drink for helping you here. When digestion is regular and in good shape, you won’t have so many gases. It is perfectly normal to have them through the day (this means you are healthy) but if you have them too often it is a sign that you must take action. Try the best tea for gas and bloating and solve your problem.
Which tea is best for gas and bloating?
Cumin, anise, fennel and sweet anise are the best natural medicines for bloating, among which cumin is the most effective. However, other herbs also help with poor digestion and gases. It turns out that the mixture from the fruits of all four herbs is particularly effective if we give priority to cumin.
Cumin tea is considered a good source of fiber that is essential for the normal functioning of your digestive system. With the help of cumin, you can calm your stomach and fix problems such as gases, bloating, constipation and diarrhea.
Thus, cumin is recommended preventively to add to the foods that could potentially cause digestive problems (cabbage).
It is so effective natural aid in case of digestive problems that people with irritable bowel syndrome often choose it as a natural helper.
Two ways of usage
Cumin seeds are a real miracle of nature. They immediately help if you have problems with digestion and if you have gases and feeling bloated. You can use them in two ways. The first is that you take a half of a teaspoon of cumin seeds in your mouth and swallow with a glass of hot water. The other one is to cook tea from the cumin. Boil a teaspoon of seeds in 3 deciliters of water. When it boils, cook for a few more minutes, cool it down a little, strain it and drink.
Asafetida is appreciated the most in folk medicine due to the beneficial effects that it has on digestion. It acts against bloating, cures constipation and diarrhea. The tea from asafetida eliminates intestinal parasites and regulates appetite, and is also popular for diets.
If you have any digestive problems, prepare asafetida tea. Mix half of a teaspoon of salt, a quarter of a teaspoon of pepper and 2 pinches of asafetida with a cup of water and boil it. Wait until the mixture cools and add one lemon juice. Drink one cup a day, but be careful, although asafetida regulates digestion, it can also cause digestive disorders in excessive amounts.
Ginger is one of the oldest spices that is useful in fighting gastric and digestive disorders. Many studies have shown that ginger helps in poor digestion (relieving bloating and abdominal cramps), but also in the case of heartburn. In addition, ginger stops diarrhea and is recommended even in cases of food poisoning.
Smaller quantities of ginger stimulate the secretion of digestive juices, thus helping to eliminate gastrointestinal disturbances. The freshest ginger root is the most effective. You can drink tea from root or you can also use ginger powder. In case of digestion troubles, cook ginger tea, but don’t add sugar to it. You can mix some honey in it. The ginger gives a natural relief for heartburn, and it also reduces the level of cholesterol in the blood.
It is time for you to give space to the peppermint tea in your herbal box. Peppermint is one of the best medicinal herbs to help with digestive problems, bowel pain, and intestinal cramps. Healing properties of the peppermint are attributed to peppermint oil, which also contains menthol. Try it and give it a chance.
It is recommended for irritable bowel syndrome, a condition characterized by sudden cramps, poor digestion, and alternating constipation and diarrhea. It prevents bloating and gases, hair loss, and cellulite, as well as gastric ulcers and eliminates travel sickness. Drink a cup or two of peppermint tea a day to avoid any indigestion problems, or eat a spoon of honey with three drops of mint oil 20 minutes before eating.
What do you eat?
Gases are most often caused by certain foods (fried food, beans, peas, milk in people with lactose inertia, yeast, sugar) and beverages. Small pockets, which we call diverticules, bulge from the intestinal wall with aging. Bacteria that multiply in them cause the fermentation of carbohydrates and thus a lot of gases. Anyone who swallows a lot of air during eating also has frequent gases. Are you in stress often? Stress is a major factor in having them. Sometimes they can occur from the excessive growth of some gut bacteria.
In the end, I am giving you some nutrition tips to avoid bloating and gases. Eat smaller quantities of food at a time and don’t mix different types of food in your meal. Don’t drink during eating. Before eating, drink one teaspoon of zeolite in a little bit of hot water – do the same right after the meal. Don’t eat large meals, prefer smaller ones. Avoid eating raw fruit and vegetables and milk products. I hope you will get your digestion on the right track soon.
