Warm Drinks Help Your Body

The best trick is to sip warm, but not hot, drinks shortly before and after meals. Herbal infusions — such as lemon, ginger, fennel, rosemary, aniseed and cinnamon — heat up the body, invigorate and promote digestion.┬áIt can also help prevent gas, bloating and full, heavy feelings in the stomach. Coffee should be avoided, because it suppresses appetite and irritates intestinal mucous. Tea, especially green tea, can prevent iron from food from binding effectively.
