What Herbal Remedies Are Used to Treat Indigestion?

Read Transcript

A lot people suffer from indigestion and they wonder what can they do? I'd like to recommend a few simple things. After a meal, drink peppermint tea. Peppermint contains menthol, and menthol is very soothing for the stomach and for the intestines. If you're used to getting indigestion after a meal and you drink a cup of peppermint tea, just that alone may be completely sufficient to eliminate indigestion, it works for a lot of people.

The same thing is true with ginger root tea. Ginger root contains novel compounds called gingerols and shogaols that help to reduce indigestion, help to reduce nausea, make you feel very good. I love to drink a cup of hot ginger root tea after a meal. Also you can benefit from taking digestive enzymes.

These are substances that cause your body to break down food and digest it more effectively. Papaya enzymes will break down proteins and a lot of people take papaya enzymes after a meal, but there are also multiple digestive enzymes that breakdown proteins, carbohydrates and fats. These different things will help with indigestion, help you to feel more comfortable, so that you can live a more comfortable life.
