The upset stomach is often followed by problems with digestion and constipation. These health issues not only may be followed by different symptoms, but they may also have a negative influence on the overall health.
It occurs due to the fact that irregular bowel movements cause toxin retention in the body and toxins may pass from the intestines to the whole body very easily.
Fortunately, there are some teas with which you can combat upset stomach, indigestion and constipation.
We decided to tell you a little about them:
Mint tea improves digestion, eliminates upset stomach and prevents constipation. For the best results, drink it while warm with no sugar added.
It’s prepared as usual. Pour 250ml of boiling water over a teaspoon or a bag of mint tea, leave it for 5 to 10 minutes, then strain and drink.
You should drink at least 3 cups of mint tea a day if you feel that your stomach is upset or you suffer from indigestion or constipation.
Black cumin tea:
Black cumin tea is very efficient for eliminating both mild and severe problems with digestion and constipation. This tea eliminates cramps, tension and nervousness in the stomach and improves bowel movement.
In order to prepare this tea, pour 250ml of water over a teaspoon of black cumin. Leave it for 10 to 15 minutes, then strain and drink. You shouldn’t drink more than 1 cup of black cumin tea a day since larger amounts may lead to allergies. That’s why black cumin tea mustn’t be consumed by children.
If you feel that your stomach is upset, another tea you can use to solve that problem is elderberry tea.
In order to prepare this tea, pour 1l of boiling water over two tablespoons of elderberry tea. Cover with a lid and leave it for 10 to 15 minutes. Then strain and drink throughout the day.

Senna or cassia seed tea:
Senna tea improves digestion and bowel movement. However, you should know that this tea must be avoided by pregnant women and by people suffering from uterus and urinary bladder illnesses.
In order to prepare this tea, pour 250ml of water over a teaspoon of senna tea. Drink after cooling down.
Alder buckthorn young stem dried bark tea:
Alder buckthorn young stem bark contains numerous herbal matters with laxative properties. At the same time, these matters eliminate cramps, bloathing and indigestion. That’s why we recommend that you should have alder buckthorn young stem bark during the entire year.
You can find the bark of this tree by yourself. In the spring, before the tree comes in leaf, peel off the bark from the stem in the form of a ribbon one or one and a half centimeters wide and about 30cm long. Put the bark into the oven immediately and dry it on 100ºC for an hour. Then cut the bark into tiny pieces and keep it in a paper bag during the entire year. Use it every time you want to make tea.
In order to prepare the tea, pour 500ml of boiling water over a tablespoon of the bark. Cover with a lid, leave it for 10 to 15 minutes, then strain, divide into three equal amounts and drink throughout the day.
We want to emphasize that when you prepare any of these teas for solving problems with upset stomach, indigestion or constipation, you should never add sugar.
If you have mild symptoms of these problems, one or two cups of tea are enough. However, if the symptoms are more severe and last for a long time, don’t give up after the first or the second cup. If necessary, drink for a few days.
You can drink various kinds of teas throughout the day and you can also mix various kinds of teas when preparing one.
