The Best Anti-Bloating (& Cold Remedy) Tea

To keep the body in good health is a duty…otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind sharp and clear.

Happy post Labor Day friends! We are officially through our last summer holiday weekend & if any of you celebrated as much as I did, it is time to detox. I foresee a lot of leafy green salads, green smoothies & anti-bloating tea in my future!

While I was hoping for a long relaxing weekend full of football, I ended up developing a fun case of acute bronchitis that kept me sleepless most nights & coughing all day. In an effort to kill two birds with one stone (detox from the weekend AND cure my sickness) I will be chugging tea for the next week.

A few years ago I created this concoction when I was trying to detox after a long weekend of tailgating & the bars. Then I got really sick my final year of graduate school where I literally had a bad cold for 6 months, I tried every remedy I could think of to get rid of the cold but nothing worked. Finally I made this tea and within days felt better. It is a miracle worker!

Why use ginger in your tea?

Ginger has so many health benefits. It is used for antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, and anti-ulcer activities. Ginger is also considered as one of the best detoxifying herbs. I ran out of ginger root (and didn’t feel good enough to go to the store to buy it) so it wasn’t used here but I would highly recommend it for your recipe.

What are the health benefits of cayenne?

Cayenne, like ginger, has so many health benefits associated with the spice. Just to name a few it: boosts your immune system, aids in digestion, defends against bacteria, lowers blood pressure and relieves headaches.

Be aware, the spices/herbs will settle at the bottom of your tea when inactive. Simple shake or stir your tea before pouring it out for individual use to obtain all of the detox/cold fighting benefits!

This tea definitely has a little kick to it, but thankfully it is shocking your system for all of the right reasons. Between the tumeric, cayenne and ginger, you are aiding your body with a multitude of healthy spices & herbs.

In an effort to tame the taste, warm your tea before serving. It not only tastes better that way but it also allows the spices to blend together more to create a less bitter flavor!

Whether you use this Anti-Bloating & Cold Remedy Tea for its immune boosting or digestive qualities it won’t let you down!

ENJOY!
