6 Herbal Teas That Help With Insomnia, Anxiety, and Digestion

Take a moment to think about your morning routine. What's the first thing you do when you wake up? What's the first thing you eat or drink? Is a cup of strong black coffee your only breakfast? It might be time to change that.

Experts have found drinking herbal tea to be beneficial to your overall health, including targeting significant concerns such as insomnia, anxiety, and digestion. And if you struggle with energy levels, a jittery does of caffeine isn't the only fuel to get your engine running. A few natural herbs may be more effective and have a positive impact on your health.  

Here are a list of 6 teas you should have on hand at all times and what they can do:

1. Ginseng Tea

While the drug caffeine does a great job of keeping you awake, a lot of people complain of side effects such as nausea, dizziness, increased heart-rate, and inability to focus.

Ginseng is a great alternative that increases mental alertness and improves concentration at the same time. Drinking ginseng tea in the mornings will reduce fatigue, promote relaxation, and reduce stress.

2. Echinacea Tea

A common cold doesn't always require a trip to the pharmacy. A few sniffles and a sore throat can be cured using a natural remedy like echinacea. I take it in pill form when I feel a cold coming on, but drinking echinacea tea will do the trick.

This ancient herb naturally strengthens the immune system and fights sore-throat-causing bacteria to make you better in no time.

3. Passionflower Tea

If you've ever had a hard time getting to sleep or staying asleep, you'd better try this. Passionflower tea naturally fights insomnia and promotes a restful sleep. An added bonus? It also reduces anxiety and stress!

Coffee, black tea, and green tea can all be found somewhere in your kitchen, but maybe your herbal tea supply has been pushed to the back of the cupboard. Perhaps the herbal teas you've tried didn't taste good. I don't like licorice root or dandelion, for example.

It's time to look through your tea collection and toss the flavors you don't enjoy. Brew a bunch of teas and discover which ingredients you do and don't like. Many herbal teas will help you with digestion, colds, insomnia, fatigue, night sweats, and more.

4. Peppermint Tea

You've probably had peppermint tea before, but did you know what it can do? Having a cup of this cleansing herbal tea can help with tummy troubles like indigestion, gas, or bloating. It's also effective for IBS sufferers.

Treat yourself to a cup of authentic peppermint tea an hour after dinner to get all the good effects!

5. Sage Tea

Sage is a spice you've probably popped in the stuffing at Thanksgiving, but if you love the taste, you'll want to try the tea. Sage is excellent in relieving PMS symptoms and getting rid of awful night sweats.

You probably don't have this tea in your cupboard. Get it here today!

6. Ginger Tea

Instead of taking Gravol or an anti-nauseant, sipping a cup of hot ginger tea will help soothe your tummy and help with digestion. If you suffer from joint pain, ginger tea is also an excellent remedy.
