Tea Causes Heartburn

What causes heartburn?

Tea has been used for thousands of years to soothe and ease a selection of health Problems. In reality, tea is the most consumed beverage in the world, except for water. Herbal teas have also proved to be a sensible choice for those hunting for a natural angina herbal cure.

Black, green and red teas contain polyphenols which is an antioxidant that helps to protect our body from free radical damage. The polyphenols found in tea have been shown to provide anti-cancer properties through numerous studies. In addition, these same studies have advised that drinking many cups of tea every day could also decrease the risk of stomach and esophageal cancers.

But not all teas are made equal. The leaves from black, green and red teas come from a warm-weather evergreen tree known as Camellia sinensis. [**] what we consider'herbal teas' don't come from this tree in the slightest. In fact, herbal teas aren't truly teas but are infusions called'tisane' that are made of assorted herbs, flowers, roots, and other bits of some plants. Tisane doesn't contain as much polyphenols as true tea does, although they can be extraordinarily favorable in alternative routes.

When looking for heartburn relief, you can find some'herbal teas' are way more satisfactory with regard to easing angina symptoms, acidic reflux and other gastrointestinal abnormalities, than others. Unfortunately, some teas may aggravate these conditions rather than relieve them, so select your herbal tea cure smartly.

So, if you are searching for a way to relieve angina symptoms or other Problems related to digestive orders,eg GERD, here are some herbal teas you may wish to consider trying :

Chamomile Tea
This is a very popular herbal tea used to treat a spread of health concerns like indigestion, heartburn, anxiety, PMS, sleep disturbances and easing foreboding. It also helps to alleviate the inflamed or irritated mucus surfaces of the digestive tract ( good for acid reflux sufferers ) helping to market normal digestion. Used topically, it can also promote the healing of minor skin irritations and scrapes. [**] since chamomile is in the ragweed family, it may set off a reaction to anyone that has allergies to ragweed.

Marshmallow Tea
No, not the big fluffy things you roast over the fire. In this example, it is the root that is employed in herbal medicinal products. When taken internally, such as in a tea, marshmallow is known to ease bladder infections, and coat and soothe the stomach tract, sore throats, ease respiratory issues and promote healing of the urinary tract. It can also be bought as a topical formula for use on burns, scrapes and inflammatory skin anomalies.

Peppermint Tea
The mint leaves are used to brew a delightfully refreshing herbal tea that contains no caffeine. [**] there are contrary reports as to whether to use peppermint in any form when affected by angina and/or acid reflux.

in a number of cases, it is claimed to ease stomach and digestive Problems. The oil within the peppermint helps to stimulate the flow of bile to the stomach and relieve gas pains, give heartburn relief, and settle an upset stomach and nausea. On the other hand, studies have also indicated that drinking peppermint, spearmint or other strongly spiced teas basically causes the LES to chill even more, resulting in extra acid burn. The LES ( lower esophageal sphincter ) is an one-way valve that separates the esophagus from the belly and allows food and liquid to go into the stomach. When this sphincter doesn't close correctly or is relaxed enough, food, liquid and acid can reflux back up into the esophagus causing heartburn. Since the reports are opposing on how effective peppermint tea might be in helping heartburn relief, you can just want to try it for yourself and see which group you fall into.

Aloe Vera Juice
though this isn't a tea, I have included it in this article as Aloe Vera can be taken in liquid form. The liquid is made from the gel found in the Aloe Vera leaves and works to help soothe the bowel and defend against ulcers. In topical form, it is great to use on insignificant burns, third degree burns, cuts, and scalds.

Many plants and herbs can be made into herbal teas that have a assortment of constructive properties. The above list should give you a kick off point on some of the more favorable beverages that help with heartburn relief and other digestive orders.

a note about peptic ulcers : Many teas can irritate the healing of peptic ulcers. Chamomile , however , seems to have a soothing effect. It contains a high flavonoid called Apigenin which helps to hold back the growth of Helicobacter Pylori, the organism in charge of causing peptic ulcers.
