The effect of peppermint tea can be very beneficial for your digestive system and help alleviate problems like bloating, stomach gas and flatulence.
Peppermint has relaxant and antispasmodic properties and can help relieve cramps and spasms in the gastrointestinal tract, bile duct and gallbladder.
This improves the passage of both food and swallowed air through the digestive tract, allowing them to go through smoothly and without pain or discomfort.
The flow of bile to the liver can also be increased by the compounds in peppermint tea and moderate intake of the herb seems to have a detoxifying effect on it. A well-functioning liver is vital to overall digestive health and therefore reducing flatulence problems.
