That’s why we’re excited to share with you three invigorating and gut-supporting drinks that will help you kickstart your day with a burst of energy and support optimal digestion. These drinks are not only delicious but also packed with ingredients known to nourish and support your gut, as well as the rest of your body. Get ready to sip your way to a healthier and more vibrant you!

Tea

Let’s start with one of the most popular morning drinks—good old tea! There are a variety of different flavors to choose from, and some of the most popular ones can also provide your gut with a little extra support. Two of our favorite options include…

  • Peppermint Tea. This minty tea has been studied for its effects on various digestive discomforts like bloating, indigestion, and stomach pain by encouraging the muscles in your digestive system to relax.  
  • Ginger Tea. Ginger has long been a go-to tactic to help provide some relief for those who feel nauseous, and now scientists know why—because this amazing plant has properties that help boost gut motility (the rate at which food moves through your digestive tract). By helping your body empty your stomach more efficiently, ginger tea is a great option for supporting healthy digestion. 

Ginger and Turmeric Morning Elixir

A delightful mixture of ingredients that help your body eliminate toxins, efficiently digest your meals and generally help you feel your best. 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of water (or coconut water)
  • ½ tsp grated turmeric or turmeric powder 
  • ½ tsp grated fresh ginger 
  • ½ lemon
  • Raw honey to taste

Directions

  1. Heat water (no need to boil as warm water will work just fine).
  2. Squeeze the juice out of the lemon in a bowl and set aside.
  3. In a separate mug, combine the ginger, turmeric, honey, and water.
  4. Slowly stir as you pour in the lemon juice.
  5. Drink warm or pour over ice. 
  6. Optional: Add an additional lemon slice to the drink if desired.

If you want to shake things up and give this elixir a different spin, replace the turmeric with cinnamon instead. Both options are great for your gut and can be used to give this health-supporting drink a different flavor.
