Help with difficult digestion

We bet with all the copious meals these days, you’re having a hard time with digestion. Bloating, heaviness, stomach aches, gas, heartburn…

Bad eating habits and changes in meal routines can produce some or all of these symptoms and can be a real inconvenience.
If they drag on, it’s best to visit your doctor, but if they’re associated to a specific period or days, we can alleviate the symptoms using natural plants and remedies.

Other causes can be a poorly balanced diet and eating too much grease, junk food or baked goods, eating too fast, allergies or food intolerance, diseases of the digestive tract (such as stomach ulcers or gastritis), stress and/or anxiety.

The best home remedies for difficult digestion feature medicinal plants which have spasm preventing and relaxing properties, and which help alleviate symptoms such as intestinal irritation, heartburn, inflammation, gas, etc.

For example:

Camomile
This is the most beneficial plant for the digestive system. It has anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic and digestive properties, which help reduce stomach inflammation, alleviate stomach aches and combat gas.

Mint
Prevents the accumulation of gases, alleviates stomach pain and prevents nausea.

Fennel
Relaxes the stomach, helps to expel accumulated gases and stimulates appetite.

Ginger
Boosts the production of digestive enzymes that help the digestion process and reduce inflammation, stomach ache, gas and flatulence.

Baking soda
Helps balance stomach acidity, is good for reducing heaviness after a copious meal and alleviates discomfort.
