We have unproductive digestive systems as a result of daily work stress, a sedentary lifestyle, and bad eating habits including eating irregularly, eating too much, or eating on the go, which causes a general shrinkage in gut health. We may experience symptoms like gas, bloating, indigestion, abdominal discomfort, diarrhoea, and other digestive problems as a result. An important factor in determining whether or not the body is healthy is digestion. According to a certified dietitian, diabetic educator, and nutritionist Garima, "Digestion isn't only a procedure where food is broken down and gives our body the energy and the essential nutrients, rather a good digestive system is a cornerstone or the key that leads to a long and disease-free life."

Here are some herbs that promote a healthy gut-


"These tiny seeds often referred to as jeera among Indians, are utilised in practically every household as a treatment to ease stomach issues like gas and bloating. Cumin seed's anti-inflammatory properties ease pain and discomfort in the stomach. Generally speaking, cumin water encourages the release of digestive enzymes and speeds up the digesting process, which might help you combat gastrointestinal troubles.


Fenugreek also referred to as methi seeds in Indian families, is a fantastic source of antioxidants and fibre. "In addition, they have the capacity to function as a natural digestive, aiding in the removal of all harmful and undesired toxins from the body. Additionally, the lubricating quality of fenugreek seeds relaxes the lining of the stomach and intestines. Drinking fenugreek water every morning on an empty stomach is a successful technique to lose weight and naturally burn abdominal fat for individuals trying to get back in shape.


Triphala is a popular Ayurvedic formula made from the fruits of three different herbs: amla (gooseberry), haritaki (chebulic myrobalan), and bibhitaki (Belleric myrobalan). It aids in the movement of food, enhances the contractile function of the digestive system's muscles, and avoids the buildup of gas in the digestive system. Triphala also aids in the treatment of dyspepsia.


Ginger is a popular flavouring ingredient in Indian cuisine. It has a strong aroma and a warming impact when taken. It is an effective home treatment for indigestion because it increases the production of digestive enzymes and gastric acids. Ginger aids in the elimination of intestinal gas.
