Does Green Tea Help With Bloating?

This morning I woke up feeling slightly bloated 🤦‍♀️. This is unusual for me and made me feel uneasy. I go to my food cupboard whenever I have any digestive-related symptoms – (I learned the hard way a long time ago to avoid relying on medication for such conditions). Your very own pantry actually contains a lot of natural medicine. After all, food is our best medicine. 🤭🚪⁣⁣⁣⁠

That’s when I remembered what I hadn’t been including in my daily diet for the past week. My green tea! I reached in the back for the green tea that had somehow been placed out of sight (out of sight often means out of mind). ⁣⁠

I thought I’d share with you some reasons why including a cup of green tea daily reduces the effects of bloating and makes us feel so much better.☕🍃⁣⁣⁣⁠

Why green tea is the perfect bloating treatment

1️⃣ Green tea has anti-inflammation properties

The anti-inflammatory properties decrease gas build-up and will soothe digestion ⁣⁣⁣⁠

2️⃣ It contains more EGCG than other teas

EGCG is catechin. Fancy word, right? 😂😊 This simply means that it contains an antioxidant found in plants.⁣⁣⁣⁠

3️⃣ Green tea is almost fully organic ⁣⁣⁣⁠

Did you know that green tea is almost completely natural and is processed the least out of all the other tea? If you’re looking to go organic, green tea is a good addition to your meals. ⁣⁣⁣⁠

4️⃣ Antioxidant and polyphenol duo

Finally, green tea contains this combination which stimulates digestion, reduces gas, and improves metabolism somewhat.⁣⁣⁣⁠

Green tea has a great number of health benefits and I love it. A quick tip: add some honey and lemon to your hot green tea to add additional flavor and benefits. 😋⁣⁣⁣⁠
