If you’re looking to help out your digestive system and get rid of that post-meal pudgy belly, Fennel tea is the hero you deserve.

If you’ve got butterflies in your stomach and can’t seem to get rid of your anxious nerves, Chamomile is the tea for you. Its compounds act in a similar way as Valium’s. One study out of the University of Pennsylvania discovered that people with anxiety disorders reported significant relief from symptoms after taking a chamomile supplement over the course of eight weeks, when compared to the control group.

Peppermint tea is a great drink to make when your digestive system is waging war on you. It helps relax gastrointestinal muscles, making it easier to digest food. One important thing to note, however, is that you should not drink peppermint tea if your pain stems from acid reflux.
