Some Healthy Drinks That Improved Your Digestion:
When it comes to eating healthy, we know that the food we put into our bodies is important. But, our bodies also have to be able to properly break down the food we eat, so we can actually use those nutrients as fuel. That’s why, today, I’m sharing 5 tasty drinks for digestion that are specially crafted to support a healthy digestive system!
But, these drinks for digestion feature a special (and delicious) high-fiber ingredient that can help with regularity. To improve your digestive health, consider adding one or more of the following healthy drinks to your diet.
Drinking warm ginger tea just before or during a big meal may improve digestive health and prevent heartburn, stomachache, and indigestion. This is because the root stimulates saliva flow, bile, and gastric juice production, which jump-starts the breakdown of the food you eat.
How To Make Ginger Tea:
- 1 inch of Fresh Ginger (no need to peel)
- one cup of water
Optional flavoring: (choose just one)
- Cinnamon stick 1
- A piece of fresh Turmeric (cut into thin slices)
- Several sprigs of Fresh mints
- Combine the ginger slices and water in a saucepan over high heat. If you’re adding a cinnamon stick, fresh turmeric, or fresh mint, add it now. Bring the mixture to a simmer, then reduce the heat as necessary to maintain a gentle simmer for 5 minutes (for extra-strong ginger flavor, simmer for up to 10 minutes).
- Remove the pot from the heat. Carefully pour the mixture through a mesh sieve into a heat-safe liquid measuring cup, or directly into a mug.
- If desired, serve with a lemon round and/or a drizzle of honey or maple syrup, to taste. Serve hot.
In addition to being wonderfully tasty, lemongrass tea has been shown to help soothe the stomach and keep digestive functions in check. Used as an ancient Chinese medicine remedy to help decrease symptoms in certain stomach issues such as bloating and constipation, lemongrass contains a compound called citral which provides anti-inflammatory benefits. It’s also caffeine-free, making it an ideal after-dinner beverage or sleepy time tea.
How To make lemongrass Tea:
- Lemongrass, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
- Finely chopped Fresh Mints Leaves (1/2 cup )
- Tea Leaves (1 teaspoon)
- Gur or Jaggery to taste
- Combine the lemongrass, mints leaves, and jaggery with 5 to 6 cups of water in a pan
- bring to boil it
- Lower to flame and simmer till it reduces to about 3 cups
- Remove from the flame and add tea leaves
- Cover and allow it to infuse for a few minutes
- Strain the lemongrass and serves it hot
Packed with fiber, fennel may help relieve constipation and other digestive problems that cause gas, as well as keep things moving properly in the digestive tract, though research has shown insufficient evidence for this. To enjoy the therapeutic benefits of fennel, you can simply chew on the seeds, or make a tea by crushing them and pouring hot water over them.
How To Make Fennel Tea:
- 1 tablespoon of Fennel seeds
- honey 1 tablespoon
- 1/2 inch of ginger (optional)
- 2 cups of Water
- Using pestle and mortar, crush fennel seeds gently until it is fragrant.
- Gently crush the ginger.
- Over medium heat, bring two cups of water rolling boil.

- Remove from the heat and strain in serving cup.
- Add honey and mix thoroughly.
- Serve hot or warm.
Native to Europe and Asia, peppermint has been used for thousands of years for its pleasant, minty taste and health benefits. It contains natural chemicals that may help the digestive tract by reducing spasms in the gut, meaning your body is more relaxed and can more easily digest food after ingesting it. For this reason, it has also been found to be likely effective in treating irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
How To Make Peppermint Tea:
- 2 cups of water
- 15 to 14 Fresh Mints leaves (rubbed & crushed to release it flavor)
- 2 tablespoons of honey (optional)
- Lemon Slices(optional)
- In a small pot, add the water and bring to a simmer.
- Add the mint leaves and turn off the heat. Allow the leaves to steep 15 minutes at least. You can go a bit longer if you want a stronger flavor.
- Strain leaves out through a strainer and pour into teacups. Add one teaspoon honey per cup and a squeeze of lemon if desired. Serve warm
Your morning brew can help with more than providing you a much-needed energy boost. It may also act as a stimulant for your digestive tract. Functioning like a laxative, coffee gets things moving quickly in your gut. While coffee may help you time your daily bowel movement before you head out the door, you shouldn’t rely solely on it to help with digestion.
Consuming excessive amounts of caffeine may cause to diarrhea, which is not only uncomfortable, but may also prevent your body from absorbing certain nutrients. Too much caffeine has been shown to hinder sleep, so it is best to avoid drinking coffee after 3 p.m.
Made by fermenting yeasts and bacteria with sweetened tea, kombucha is a refreshing, lightly carbonated drink that’s rich in probiotics.
Probiotics are healthy to live bacteria that help the gut to run smoothly. The health benefits of probiotics are many; they help to boost the immune system, improve blood sugar, reduce inflammation, and improving overall gut and digestive health.
How To Make Kombucha Tea:
- 3 1/2 quarts Water
- 1 cup of Sugar (regular granulated sugar works bests)
- 8 bags of Black Tea, Green Tea, or a mix (or 2 tablespoons loose tea)
- 2 cups of starter tea from the last batch of Kombucha
- 1 Scoby per fermentation jar, homemade or purchased online
Optional FLavoring Extras For Bottling:
- 1 to 2 cups of chopped fruits
- 2 to 3 cups of fruit juice
- 1 to 2 tablespoons of flavor tea
- 1/4 cup of honey
- 3 to 4 tablespoons of fresh herbs or spices
Make the tea base:
Bring the water to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in the sugar to dissolve. Drop in the tea and allow it to steep until the water has cooled. Depending on the size of your pot, this will take a few hours. You can speed up the cooling process by placing the pot in an ice bath.
Add the starter tea:
Once the tea is cool, remove the tea bags or strain out the loose tea. Stir in the starter tea. (The starter tea makes the liquid acidic, which prevents unfriendly bacteria from taking up residence in the first few days of fermentation.)
Transfer to jars and add the SCOBY:
Pour the mixture into a 1-gallon glass jar (or divide between two 2-quart jars, in which case you’ll need 2 Scobys) and gently slide the Scoby into the jar with clean hands. Cover the mouth of the jar with a few layers of tightly-woven cloth, coffee filters, or paper towels secured with a rubber band. (If you develop problems with gnats or fruit flies, use a tightly woven cloth or paper towels, which will do a better job keeping the insects out of your brew.)
Ferment for 7 to 10 days:
Keep the jar at room temperature, out of direct sunlight, and where it won’t get jostled. Ferment for 7 to 10 days, checking the kombucha and the SCOBY periodically.
It’s not unusual for the SCOBY to float at the top, bottom, or even sideways during fermentation. A new cream-colored layer of SCOBY should start forming on the surface of the kombucha within a few days. It usually attaches to the old SCOBY, but it’s ok if they separate. You may also see brown stringy bits floating beneath the Scoby, sediment collecting at the bottom, and bubbles collecting around the SCOBY. This is all normal and signs of healthy fermentation.
After 7 days, begin tasting the kombucha daily by pouring a little out of the jar and into a cup. When it reaches a balance of sweetness and tartness that is pleasant to you, the kombucha is ready to bottle.
Remove the SCOBY:
Before proceeding, prepare and cool another pot of strong tea for your next batch of kombucha, as outlined above. With clean hands, gently lift the SCOBY out of the kombucha and set it on a clean plate. As you do, check it over and remove the bottom layer if the Scoby is getting very thick.
Bottle the finished kombucha:
Measure out your starter tea from this batch of kombucha and set it aside for the next batch. Pour the fermented kombucha (straining, if desired) into bottles using the small funnel, along with any juice, herbs, or fruit you may want to use as a flavoring. Leave about a half-inch of headroom in each bottle. (Alternatively, infuse the kombucha with flavorings for a day or two in another covered jar, strain, and then bottle. This makes a cleaner kombucha without “stuff” in it.)
Carbonate and refrigerate the finished kombucha:
Store the bottled kombucha at room temperature out of direct sunlight and allow 1 to 3 days for the kombucha to carbonate. Until you get a feel for how quickly your kombucha carbonates, it’s helpful to keep it in plastic bottles; the kombucha is carbonated when the bottles feel rock solid. Refrigerate to stop fermentation and carbonation, and then consume your kombucha within a month.
10. Make a fresh batch of kombucha:
Clean the jar being used for kombucha fermentation. Combine the starter tea from your last batch of kombucha with the fresh batch of sugary tea, and pour it into the fermentation jar. Slide the Scoby on top, cover, and ferment for 7 to 10 days.
Touted as nature’s digestive aid, water is a major component of every single cell that lines your digestive tract, meaning you need plenty of it for those cells to function. so Water also keeps tissues in your digestive tract pliable while creating an environment that allows food to easily pass.
Be sure to drink the right amount for your body type. To determine your total daily fluid intake, divide your weight (in pounds) by two, and that’s approximately how many ounces of fluid you need daily. Add an additional 16 ounces for every pound of sweat lost during exercise or work outdoors in hot temperatures.
For additional therapeutic effects, add a squeeze of lemon in your water or unsweetened tea. This citrus is used as a digestive aid, an anti-inflammatory and a diuretic.
Furthermore, drink your daily recommended amount of water, especially when consuming foods high in fiber to prevent constipation. Fiber not only helps regulate bowel movements throughout the day, it also helps us feel fuller, longer.
