Bloating is a symptom of IBS, including gas, abdominal distention, constipation and stomach cramps. IBS is an inflammation of the internal mucosa. Also, it leads to poor absorption of the consumed food because of the damaged intestine walls. This means malnutrition of essential micronutrients can happen.
If you are experiencing gas, bloating after meals, pain in the abdomen, diarrhea, or constipation, there is a chance you are suffering from IBS.
There Is a Natural Remedy for IBS
The two key ingredients of this natural IBS remedy are turmeric and ginger.
These spices are extremely helpful against bloating, abdominal pains and constipation.
Turmeric has been used for centuries in cooking, as a beauty product and for medicinal purposes as well. The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin.
Ginger is a popular spice for centuries and one of the oldest remedies in herbal and aromatic traditional remedies, particularly in the Middle East.
Combining these spices together can make miracles for your health.
1 cup of water
1 teaspoon of grated turmeric
1 teaspoon of grated ginger
1 lemon slice
1 teaspoon of coconut oil or black pepper
Because turmeric has low absorption and rapid metabolism, you need to increase the absorption in the body by adding a little fat into the tea, such as teaspoon of coconut oil or black pepper. This will help the absorption of curcumin.
How to prepare it?
Add the grated ginger and turmeric in boiling water and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes on low heat.
If you are using ground turmeric or ginger, boil for only 5 minutes. Then, strain the tea and add honey and lemon to enhance taste.
Finally, add coconut oil or black pepper to boost your body absorption.
You can consume one cup of tea daily for better health.
If you are taking blood thinning drugs consult a doctor before consuming this tea. Moreover, pregnant and breast feeding women should consult their doctor before consuming these herbs.
