Feeling Bloated? Try this Ayurvedic tea

Do you often feel bloated after eating or find yourself retaining some extra fluid? Here is a simple tea you can drink that will help. This tea is a very popular Ayurvedic tea that you can sip on all day. Because of its diuretic nature, don't consume in the evening and if you are a predominantly Vata type make sure you pay attention to your body for signs of dryness.
What makes this tea so wonderful?
Fennel — is said to be excellent at promoting digestive health, and can be used to    effectively treat problems with the stomach and intestines. It is also said to improve the health of your elimination system. It can lower blood pressure, boost libido, and even improve respiration. (It may also curb appetite). 
Cumin — is reported to be quite effective at reducing blood glucose, making it ideal for diabetics. It can also help reduce cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood, lower cortisol, protect the liver, and reduce your risk of osteoporosis. “It’s a potent spice that can boost metabolism.” 
Coriander — may help with swelling in the body. The detoxifying properties of coriander can clear up skin problems, reduce liver toxins, and flush out blood impurities.
