After consuming a table of dishes rich in proteins and fats, you feel uncomfortably bloated. You wish you could just pass gas and rid yourself of the food in your stomach as if it were just air.

One of the most famous teas made for assisting in digestion is an infusion with a very unique taste: boldo tea. It works by stimulating gallbladder secretions and liver function to ease the digestion of fatty foods. For better results, combine the tea with tarragon, chamomile, or mint.

The recipe for boldo tea:

1. Boil a small amount of water.
2. When it boils, remove the heat and add a small number of boldo leaves.
3. Optional: Add chamomile or tarragon, along with a small number of mint leaves.
4. Steep for only some minutes, afterward strain, sweeten, and serve.

Another herb which popularity and credibility is only second to that of boldo tea is chamomile tea, which has a sedative effect. Take it after dinner or lunch to feel lighter. The active ingredients in chamomile prevent the heavy feeling in the stomach, flatulence, and intestinal and stomach inflammation.

The recipe for chamomile tea:

1. Boil a small amount of water.
2. When it boils, remove the heat and add a handful of mint and chamomile in a cup.
3. Pour the boiled water into the cup and steep for 5 minutes.
4. Strain and sweeten.

These ingredients help in preventing vomiting and nausea, dyspepsia, avoiding gas and abdominal swelling, reduces the heavy feeling in the stomach, promotes digestion, and stimulates gallbladder and pancreatic secretions.
