MEXICO CITY, September 13 (EL UNIVERSAL) – Food is extremely important in people’s daily lives because it regulates and provides the energy the body needs to function properly during the day.
For this reason, it is important to achieve a balance and avoid serious damage to the digestive system. That is why it is highly recommended to consume some natural products, fruits and vegetables, which provide specific nutrients and properties that make the eating process healthy. It is important to pay attention to the condition and discomfort of your stomach and seek relief and improve its function.
That said, there are other natural options that perfectly counteract digestive problems caused by fats, sugars, spicy preparations, and less beneficial elements. This is the case with the longstanding use of herbs and plants in traditional medicine to help the body recover.
One example is chamomile, an herb with digestive and anti-inflammatory properties, making it an ideal tool for improving intestinal transit and relieving conditions such as constipation and gastritis.
One of the most feasible and recommended ways to consume this herb is through tea or infusion, which will extract the properties it needs to be effective in the body. According to Bolivia’s Ministry of Health and Sports, there is a very simple recipe to drink it and relieve an upset stomach.
– The first thing is to boil a cup of water over medium heat for three or four minutes.
– Lower the heat, put water in a cup and add the respective flowers of this herb.
– Cover the infusion or tea and let it sit for four minutes.
– Strain and drink the preparation.
Notably, chamomile has analgesic, antispasmodic, and anti-inflammatory properties that can help relieve menstrual cramps. It also contains bioactive compounds that promote central nervous system relaxation, relieving premenstrual tension such as irritability, anxiety and insomnia.
