Tea has been well known to help treat digestive issues for thousands of years.
But most of us probably don’t know which specific teas to drink, nor what it is specifically about tea that helps us with digestion.
Like all teas, black tea comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant. It is the processing method that makes it different from the other teas. Black tea has several healthy compounds including thearubigins and theaflavins. These two compounds help improve indigestion and also acts as antioxidants that protects against stomach ulcers.
One study in mice with stomach ulcers found that 3 days of treatment with black tea has healed 78-81% of ulcers by suppressing the inflammatory compounds and pathways.
In conclusion, drinking black tea can help improve digestion and protect against ulcers.
