Stomachache is one of those health complaints that can affect your mood for the rest of the day. If you're having some tummy troubles, sipping hot tea can bring relief. But don't drink just any tea – try these suggestions and say goodbye to your stomach woes in no time.

1. Black tea

Many herbal teas are known to calm an upset stomach. Black tea, in particular, has been found to be an effective remedy for diarrhea. Studies show that black tea supplements can help improve the volume, frequency and consistency of bowel movements in children. Meanwhile, black tea extract can also help prevent diarrhea caused by E. coli infection.

Black tea has immune-supporting properties, which can help prevent and reduce the effects of alcohol-induced stomach ulcer.

Note that black tea contains caffeine, which can trigger a stomachache when consumed in large amounts, so drink black tea in moderation.

2. Chamomile tea

The tea made from daisy-like chamomile flowers is considered one of the most soothing types of tea, and its calming benefits are highlighted when used to treat stomach troubles.

Chamomile tea can help relax digestive muscles and treat gas, indigestion, motion sickness, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Studies show that chamomile tea can also reduce the frequency of chemotherapy-induced vomiting.

3. Fennel tea

Fennel is a flowering plant whose seeds, roots and leaves can be made into tea and used as a remedy for many ailments, including stomachaches, constipation, gas and diarrhea.

Studies show that fennel tea can also help relieve menstruation-related symptoms, as well as promote gut recovery after surgery.


4. Ginger root tea

Ginger is a renowned natural medicine for various health complaints, including stomach problems. Simply steep peeled ginger root in boiling water to make an aromatic tea that can address digestive issues like gas, bloating, cramps and indigestion. Ginger tea also helps promote bowel regularity.

Studies show that ginger tea can also help relieve morning sickness during pregnancy, as well as chemo-induced nausea and vomiting. (Related: Ginger root and coconut water: Smart home remedies for an upset stomach.)

Also known as tulsi, holy basil is a medicinal herb that is an excellent remedy for an upset stomach. Studies have highlighted its efficacy in relieving indigestion, as well as treating stomach ulcers that cause stomach pain and nausea.

7. Licorice root tea

Licorice tea is traditionally used to remedy stomach problems. It is also often combined with other ingredients to make herbal tea blends.

Studies show that this legume can help heal stomach ulcers, as well as relieve indigestion and chemo-induced nausea.

Note that licorice root can induce adverse effects when consumed in large amounts, so drink no more than one cup of licorice tea per day.

8. Peppermint tea

Peppermint tea is a go-to natural remedy for stomach woes. Peppermint has been shown to relax intestinal muscles, which helps relieve stomach pain.

Its essential oil also exhibits similar medicinal properties. Studies show that peppermint oil can reduce the duration, frequency and severity of stomach pain in children, as well as prevent chemo-induced nausea and vomiting.

9. Spearmint tea

Like peppermint, spearmint tea is a typical go-to remedy for digestive distress. It can reduce muscle contractions in the digestive tract and relieve stomach pain, discomfort and bloating.
