Stomach Soother = Peppermint Tea + Ginger
The menthol in peppermint can ease gastrointestinal distress by relaxing the muscles of your digestive tract, while plant phenols in ginger can help speed up the movement of food through your system.

Brew It: Pour 8 ounces boiling water over 2 peppermint tea bags and 3 slices fresh ginger, smashed, suggests Rubin. Steep 5 minutes. Let cool. Strain, stir in honey to taste, and pour over ice.
