The Best Tea For Your Gut Health!
Hi you all today, we have a super practical video because I'm going to be sharing with you the best tea for gut health. So I'm always talking root cause, right? Like figure out the root cause, and get your body back into balance. It's going to help heal your gut, but I get it.
Sometimes you just want some quick relief and this team might give you some relief. If you're really struggling with different symptoms someday until you find the root causes and get everything back into balance.
I'm Ashley Oswald, I'm a gut health dietitian and founder of Oswald Digestive Clinic where we help people improve and eliminate bothersome gut issues like gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, and more. If you or somebody you know wants to work with our clinic, go ahead and schedule an appointment with us. And without further ado, let's talk about this tea.
So there are many tea options, but my favorite is a mixture of ginger, peppermint, and fennel. So peppermint has researched in those with IBS, so irritable bowel syndrome, and that's been shown to help decrease distension, decrease gas, decrease abdominal pain, and decrease bowel movements. So it can really help with those like cramps and spasms just really calming.
And it might even help with preventing constipation possibly by helping to stimulate the gallbladder by releasing bile, which helps with that bowel movement. But the research is done on combination products.
We're not sure how much the peppermint helped versus the other ingredients. If you have acid reflux, I would say, just leave the peppermint out, just go with the ginger and fennel because peppermint can actually make acid reflux worse.
Ginger can help with pain and inflammation. It's really notable for its anti-inflammatory properties, which you maybe have heard of as ginger for arthritis for this and giving quick symptom relief. It can help calm down inflammation in the stomach.
It can help to release some gas and it can help us with some peristalsis likely due to stimulating that bile secretion from the gallbladder and then also by increasing blood circulation. And then lastly it can help with gastroparesis, which is just low stomach movement. So it just helps get the whole intestines, like gently moving will be really anti-inflammatory and calming.
And then lastly, fennel can just help relax like gut. So it can be really nice for gas and bloating and again, just a really calming effect. So. All right, great. Ashley set me up.
Where do I buy it?
I have not seen an exact combination product with all three of these products in one tea on the market. So if you know of one, let us know, I'm sure there's something out there. I just haven't come across that yet.
Otherwise, what you can do is just make your own, so either go to a natural food store, just get the ingredients, like get some fresh ginger root, get some fennel, probably the bulk section, get some fresh peppermint leaves, how delicious is that and just soak it in some hot water for yourself. Or you can go and buy these three teas separately. There are many brands that just go to the tea aisle and just make your own combination tea.
So like one big would be for one cup of tea, right? So you can just make three cups of tea. At one time.
Also, there was a company called Heather's Tummy Care. I really like them. They sell peppermint and fennel tea separately. So you could always just buy those and combine them together, and then the stronger the tea, the more effective it'll likely be.
So just kind of play around with what works for you and what you enjoy. And then before we wrap up here, I do want to take this opportunity to share our free guide which is 5 Ways To Improve Gut Health And End Food Intolerances For Good. You better check that out.
