11. Relief from Bloating

Bloating is a terribly uncomfortable feeling, and ladies, if this happens to you during certain days of the month, take comfort in knowing that relief is just a few cups of herbal tea away! Even when bloating occurs due to other reasons, you don’t need to go to the pharmacy, all you really need is a nice cup or two of peppermint or dandelion tea to relive those uncomfortable cramps, constipation, and bloating.

 

12. Relief from Insomnia

If you have ever suffered through a time in your life when you simply could not fall asleep or stay asleep, you don’t have to suffer from this problem or resort to pills. Chamomile tea or valerian tea are two of the best herbal teas that offer serious relief from insomnia or feelings of stress or anxiety that are keeping you awake.

 

13. Improve Energy Levels

You don’t need those sugary soft drinks, sports drinks, or energy drinks to get that needed boost of energy in the afternoons. Turn to herbal teas for a natural burst of energy. Some of the best teas for improving energy levels are ginger tea, nettle tea, or green tea. All of these teas will not only give you more energy, they will improve your concentration levels as well!

 

14. Delightfully Detoxifying

Before you head down to your local health food store and pay big bucks for some detox program, check out herbal teas. Fennel tea is a terrific diuretic that detoxifies the body and removes these toxins via urine. Dandelion tea is also a good choice for detoxification. For a double detox treat, sip a cup of the herbal tea of your choice while soaking in a bath filled with detoxifying Epsom salts.

15. Natural Cancer Fighter

Herbal teas are all high in antioxidants, which can help to protect you from a wide variety of cancers including oral cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, stomach cancer, cancer of the small intestine, and more! This is because antioxidants fight free radicals, which cause damage to the body on a cellular level. When cells become damaged, they can turn into precancerous cells. Avoid this by adding more herbal teas to your healthy lifestyle!

Keep in mind that all teas are not created equal. Be certain that you are buying organic teas from a reputable source.
