Anti-Bloat Tea Recipe
I really try to limit my intake of over-the-counter medications, but I find that sometimes my body needs a little push to help reduce bloating and gas.
It’s why I first started experimenting with making my own anti-bloat tea at home. I honestly can’t believe that I’m old enough to be struggling with bloating, digestive issues and gas (eek!) but here I am. Luckily, I really do find that this easy anti-bloating tea does the trick to get rid of my belly bloat.
Anti-Bloat Benefits of Ginger
Ginger is such a powerful ingredient to combat belly bloating. I’ve actually been incorporating ginger into my smoothies and teas for some time now, as I tend to struggle with digestive woes.
This anti-bloat tea with ginger offers a calming effect that can soothe your digestive tract and alleviate pesky gas symptoms, bloating and even stomach cramps.
During both of my pregnancies I can remember people always telling me to take ginger for my morning sickness.
It never really helped me with my nausea, but I’ve found that it does really work to alleviate my minor digestive symptoms and belly bloating.
I also love consuming ginger because of its anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to strengthen my immune system. I’m definitely a huge believer in ginger and I always keep some ginger root on hand.
Anti-Bloat Benefits of Fennel
Let’s face it, no one likes to talk about gas (especially me… I’d rather crawl into a hole and hide), but it’s an issue that many people deal with.
I haven’t quite pinpointed which foods are causing me occasional gas, but, it can be so bothersome at times and definitely contributes to my stomach bloating issues.
If you struggle with gas and bloating I really can’t recommend fennel highly enough.
I’m really not keen on chewing dried fennel seeds and much prefer this easy anti-bloating ginger fennel tea.
Scientists have identified fennel seeds as having anti-spasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties that help relax the body and clear gas from your system.
I don’t find that it’s an issue to steep the ginger and fennel right in my cup, but, if you are worried about avoiding the seeds and ginger when you sip you can steep using one of these disposable tea bags, which I do love to keep on hand for the different teas that I purchase or make. I hope you’ll give my easy anti-bloat tea a try!
