Bloating can be uncomfortable, and at 55 I have found that bloating is happening more often as I grow older and with different types of food and beverages. Certain types of tea may help alleviate the symptoms, my go to is our Defence herbal blend that helps reduce inflammation and bloating, and aids in detoxification. This beautiful blend has ginger, rose, ginkgo, cardamon, lemongrass, turmeric, rosehip, lemon myrtle, hibiscus and paw paw leaf.

Here are some of the best teas to consider for bloating:

Remember that individual responses to teas can vary, so it's essential to listen to your body and find the one that works best for you. Also, keep in mind that while tea can provide relief from bloating, it's important to address the underlying causes of bloating, such as dietary choices, overeating, food intolerances, or medical conditions, for long-term relief. If bloating persists or becomes severe, it's advisable to consult a healthcare professional for a proper evaluation and diagnosis.
