Herbs To Help Heartburn 🔥

Herbal Tea To Naturally Soothe Heartburn

There's a long history of herbs being used to naturally soothe heartburn, thank to the anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic benefits of key botanicals. They can be delicious as well as soothing, so it's well worth considering popping the kettle on if you suffer. 

Whilst everyone will react differently to herbs, specific flowers and leaves offer a way to naturally deal acid reflux and hearburn.  

Here are a few herbs that are commonly recommended for heartburn relief:

Ginger Root

Ginger has long been used to aid digestion and relieve gastrointestinal discomfort, including heartburn. It has anti-inflammatory benefits due to a compound found in the root, called 'gingerol'.  The gingerol is believed to help heartburn by reducing inflammation in the esophagus.  It's the main reason that we include this wonder root in our Morning Rescue blend, which can help heartburn and naturally support nausea too.

Chamomile

Chamomile flowers are known for their calming properties and can help relax the muscles of the gastrointestinal tract. Drinking chamomile tea may help soothe the irritation associated with heartburn, again due to it's anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic benefits.  In both our Night Owl and Over the Moon blends, it can ease discomfort.

Liquorice Root

Liquorice root has been used in traditional medicine to help soothe digestive issues. It has a protective effect on the lining of the stomach and may help reduce the occurrence of heartburn. However, it's important to note that excessive consumption of liquorice can lead to high blood pressure, so it's best to use it under the guidance of a healthcare professional and avoid if you're pregnant and at risk of preeclampsia.  The only tea in our range which has liquorice root is our Take A Pause menopause blend.

Peppermint

Peppermint is often used to soothe digestive discomfort, but it is not suitable in medicinal doses. While it helps relax the muscles of the gastrointestinal tract, if too much is drunk, it can also relax the lower esophageal sphincter, which can worsen heartburn symptoms in some individuals. If you decide to use peppermint, it's best to drink less than 3 cups a day, so as not to trigger this.  We add peppermint to our Final Push raspberry leaf tea blend to help sweeten it's flavour, and help with late pregnancy heartburn.

And when using herbal teas as a natural remedy to life's less glamorous issues, it's really important to pay attention to your body's response. Herbs can impact different individuals in different ways, so if your heartburn persists or worsens, it's important to consult with a healthcare professional for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.  And if you find you have a strong response, moderate the amount of tea you drink.
