Being bloated – when your stomach seems to have doubled in size and zipping your pants up seems to take more effort than usual – it’s not fun. Thankfully sipping on a hot mug of tea can help reduce that uncomfortable expansion of your midsection. Here are 5 teas to keep around to deflate your belly.

Ginger tea
A steaming mug of ginger tea is always high on the list of at home remedies for an aching tummy or gas. All those grandmas recommending this hot drink have a good reason to do so, it’s a stomach saver. Numerous studies have shown that ginger blocks several genes and enzymes in the body that promote bloat-causing inflammation.

Hibiscus tea
Full of flavonoids and other bloat-fighting compounds, hibiscus tea helps to reduce bloating by influencing how aldosterone, the hormone that regulates water and electrolytes balance, affects the body.

Lemon tea
It doesn’t just smell refreshing, lemon tea can help to reduce belly bloat thanks to the compound D-Limonene which is commonly found in the beverage. One animal study published in the Journal of the Pharmaceutical Society of Japan showed that D-Limonene can indeed decrease water retention.

Fennel tea
It’s long been used to deal with gas and other gastrointestinal problems; fennel seed is even traditionally found in gripe water to help sooth colicky infants. Fennel tea is tummy-soothing and bloat reducing because it helps to fight inflammation in the gut.

Peppermint tea
Peppermint tea is a staple for many of us, especially when our stomachs aren’t feeling tip top. There’s a reason for that. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, peppermint eases tense muscles in the digestive tract, allowing gas to dispel more quickly and easily; that means it’s a major bloat fighter.
