Green Tea with Ginger and Mint... A Detox Tummy Tamer
Health & Fitness
We've all done it on occasion. You know... eaten a few too many, or maybe even finished off the last slice of pizza simply so we didn't have to wrap it. And unfortunately, sometimes the after effects of these indulgences can leave us a little bloated, queasy, or purely parched from too much salt.
While many of us turn to "detox" drinks to help, and yes, many of them do make us feel better, I have a feeling that pure hydration plays a key role. But add in a slice of ginger, green tea and a few sprigs of mint, and you actually do add ingredients that can help.
Green Tea: Filled with antioxidants and polyphenols, green tea is said to improve immunity, help rid the body of free-radicals thereby helping to protect against disease, speed up your metabolic rate and re-hydrate. A little caffeine can also help ease an aching head.
Ginger: Known to provide gastrointestinal relief, ginger is many a pregnant woman's best friend. Safe to take during pregnancy (in proper doses... check with your doctor first), ginger has been proven to provide relief in many cases.
Mint: A well known appetizer or palate cleanser, mint promotes digestion. Soothing the stomach in cases of indigestion or inflammation, even the aroma of mint can activate the salivary glands in our mouth as well as glands which secrete digestive enzymes.
Place peeled ginger slice into the bottom of a mug along with a tea bag. Pour hot (boiled) water over and allow to steep for about 3 minutes. Add mint now if desired.
Pour tea over ice in a tall glass and add mint leaves. Enjoy!
