Which tea is good for constipation? | Which Tea Series

RSS

If we're asked the question of 'Which tea is good for constipation' we are going to outright say Senna Tea, as it's clearly hands down the winner in Herbal Tea land when it comes to easing constipation. We are also going to offer up some not so extreme alternatives that are both great for digestive health and also known to aid with constipation.

There are three main causes of constipation

  • The first one is Dehydration
  • The second reason is a low fiber diet
  • The third, and perhaps easiest to be guilty of is dehydration

There can be other underlying reasons for constipation so if it's been persisting awhile and you find that these herbal teas do not work, we recommend checking it out with your doctor.

Senna Tea - Natures laxative bomb


A rather bitter tea that is consumed only for it's natural laxative effects. How does Senna tea work? Senna contains an organic compound called glycosides. What these do is smooth out the muscles as stool passes through the intestines. Senna also interacts with the bacteria within the intestine, which helps to assist contraction and movement and thereby further helps to pass the stool down along to freedom.
We don't recommend this Herbal tea for children or consuming for more than three days at a time. This tea can be a life saver for people that are just more naturally inclined to experience constipation every now and then.

 

Peppermint Tea - Great for Digestion and Constipation

Peppermint tea for constipationDigestion and constipation are closely related process within the body, so it makes to sense to be drinking a herbal tea that tackles both at once. Peppermint tea also has a few other great side benefits such as being good for colds and immunity.

While not as strong as Senna, we would in fact recommend this tea as a good first experimental tea for those of you wanting to go the herbal route in attempting to treat your constipation. It's a lot easier on the tongue than Senna and also leaves your breath minty fresh.

 

Dandelion Tea - Minerals, Vitamins, and healthy compounds

Dandelion tea for constipationDandelion tea is probably the most overall generally health tea within this list, containing vitamins A, C, D, B -complex, iron, magnesium, zinc, potassium, manganese, choline, calcium and boron.

What this tea also does is help to relieve water retention in the body and act as a mild laxative. Also prescribed by Chinese, Native American and European herbalists to aid digestion.

Lemon Verbena Tea

Amazing Peach Tea ever!!!!!

I love it as soon as I open package. The shipment was super fast. It said it may take 3-7days average but it arrived just in 2 days. The scent of the tea is very amazing, the smell of the tea blended with peach it makes me feel so relaxed and drinking it delicious. 1000% worth the money.I will definitely continue purchasing your products. Thank you for your services.

Hi Jolie - I'm glad that arrived in time. We've actually changed $2 shipping to be $3 shipping now in order to be able to place a priority sticker on it - which SHOULD make them all as fast as you got yours. Really happy to get some reviews going for these fruit teas as they're fairly new here - much appreciated!
Tea Life - Tea LOVE

I'd been looking for high quality loose-leaf organic herb teas for ages - with little success. I stumbled across the Tea Life website one day, phoned with a bunch of questions - and placed my first order. I've not looked back - and as a result still have many boxes of unused organic tea bags in the pantry!!! It's hard to go back to tea bags. Everything about dealing with this company is delightful, right down to the educational content on their website - and the gorgeous messaging on their post bags!!! My current 'tea crush' is Melissa... but I like to order a 'new' one to try each time I stock up on my staples like Green, Sencha, Lemongrass, etc.

Hi Jenny - I also feel a bit odd using tea bags now, they're quite different for many reasons. We're usually well stocked on Melissa as a large perfume company in America buys a lot from us occasionally so we can't be caught out when those orders do come through. If you'd ever like suggestions on what to try next please let me know!
great tea

Valerian tea has normally both a strong taste and smell but I found Tea Life Valerian Tea to be much milder and more enjoyable than previous brands I have tasted. i drink it every night (without holding my nose!) Will definitely buy again.

Hi Suzanne, thanks! Our Valerian still isn't for everyone as you can tell from the reviews - but we'll recommend Damiana as a strong alternative in those cases. But for the most part, we see a lot of people getting great use out of Valerian.
Gymnema Tea Taste

Thankyou for my order. It came nice and quick and was fulfilled. I just have one question, and that's why does Gymnema Tea taste so bad? and am I using it incorrectly? should I be mixing it with other teas and in smaller amounts?
Kind regards

Hi Lindsey, thanks for your review! Gymnema is really naturally very bitter, with it normally being consumed for health purposes. A bit more on this here: https://www.sweetdefeat.com/blog/gymnema-sylvestre The best counter to this is normally honey - which we'd recommend with most herbal teas that are bitter or odd. It can be difficult to get across the taste when selling herbal teas, as we'll be the first to admit that some don't taste great! I'll also send through an edit request as you probably don't want your email listed on our website! :)
