Essential Herbs for Healthy Digestion - Lily of the Desert

Essential Herbs for Healthy Digestion

For centuries, people have used “bitter herbs” to help their digestion. Although they may sound unpleasant, bitter herbs actually assist in stimulating the body’s natural production of saliva due to their bitter taste! This encourages the breakdown of food, which results in healthier digestion.

At Lily of the Desert, we’ve discovered some fantastic combinations of trusted herbs and our own organically-grown aloe vera to assist the body’s digestion process. 

Herbs that Help Digestion 

Maintaining healthy digestion each day is not always the easiest task. Whether it is bloating, nausea, occasional heartburn, or indigestion, there are many herbs found in nature that can help keep your digestion on track.

  • Peppermint leaf can help relax your digestive system and balance stomach acidity to help with occasional gas and nausea. 
  • Chamomile leaf can help to support a healthy appetite. 
  • Borage leaf can help to soothe and ease digestion.
  • Marshmallow root helps promote regularity while soothing the digestive tract.
  • Ginger root can assist in cleansing, digestive discomfort and issues with motion. 
  • Pau D’Arco bark can help keep the gut clear while soothing the stomach and intestines. 
  • Blessed thistle herb may help soothe indigestion and stomach upset. 
  • Slippery elm bark can help calm your stomach and bowels. 
  • Fennel seed can help balance stomach acidity and ease digestive discomfort. 
  • Aloe vera can work with your own stomach acid to help maintain balance for healthy digestion.
