Which tea is good for constipation?

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.

Hi Tania, thanks for your review! This one is fairly sweet - and one that's perfect for iced tea too. In Asia it's normally used that way.
Very Happy!

I’m really happy with tea, I’m quite fussy when it comes to the jasmine blends. This is one of the best I’ve had. 👍

Hi Prema, thanks so much for your review! I really like this one so I've shared it to our Facebook Page :)
