Eat Happy, Be Healthy!
Fennel, anise, and caraway are known carminatives, helping to expel gas from the GI tract. If you are experiencing uncomfortable gas and bloating, then this tea is perfect to drink after meals to reduce symptoms. Also licorice root helps soothe and heal the gut lining. Together the combination is a naturally sweet beverage perfect to soothe your gut symptoms. You can also make a large batch and reheat as needed. Find these spices in the BULK section of your local co-op.
