Food gives energy to our body to work. Whatever you eat has a direct impact on your health. Generally, it is seen that we pay special attention to our food, but do not take care of drinks. Many people want to drink something along with food. They usually take water or soft drinks with food, which has a bad effect on digestion. It is possible that due to this you may start complaining of bloating or stomach pain.

It would be better if you consume some drinks which will help you in improving digestion. Yes, there are many post-meal drinks which are considered very good for digestion. So, today in this article, RituPuri, Dietitian of ESIC Hospital, Central Government Hospital, is telling you about some such drinks, which can be taken as post-meal-

Drink ginger tea

If you often feel like drinking tea after eating, then take ginger tea instead of milk tea. The anti-inflammatory properties found in ginger help relax the digestive system. Due to this, you do not have problems like nausea, swelling gas etc. To make ginger tea, add ginger to water and boil it. Now turn off the gas and filter the tea. If you want, you can also mix a little honey in it.

Drink fennel water

Drinking fennel water as a post-meal can also be a good idea. Some compounds are found in fennel, which relaxes the muscles of the digestive system. In such a situation, you get relief from complaints like bloating and indigestion after eating. Not only this, fennel water stimulates digestive enzymes, which benefits the digestive system. For this, put water in a vessel and boil it. Now add one spoon of fennel in it and let it boil for two to three minutes. Now turn off the gas. You filter it and drink it.

Drink chamomile tea

If you want to drink something after dinner, then chamomile tea can be consumed. This not only gives relief to your digestion but also gives you good sleep. Chamomile has anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties, which can help soothe the digestive system. It is known to provide relief from indigestion, bloating and gas. For this, you boil water. Now add chamomile flowers to it. Now leave it like this for some time. Now filter the water and then add some honey to it and mix it. Consume it hot.
