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.

OMG

I've been drinking Infused Green Teas for a few years now.. but I decided to give the Tea Life Strawberry Green Tea a go.. basically cause I was too Lazy to go to the shop and get some.

But WOW.. I've actually found a green Tea that is nice to drink.. I always thought the horrible after taste was just the way Green Tea was meant to be.. but this tea, has a lovely strawberry scent and no after taste at all!! I'm converted and I'll be back for more soon!!

Chickweed Tea

I purchased chickweed tea, and the order came the next day, the service is impeccable. The tea was savoury, taste fresh and beautiful. My daughter had a kidney infection which cleared up after taking this tea for a few days. It’s a tea I now drink regularly with my daughter.

Hi Fadya, Thank you for your review! I'm glad that helped. I also didn't know that a possible next day delivery to your location was possible with Sendle so that's also good to know. Thank you!
