This blend, a bouquet of ingredients selected for their purported ability to aid digestion and soothe the gut, hits all the right notes. We start with peppermint, prized as a digestive aid by Native Americans for millennia. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, peppermint "calms the muscles of the stomach and improves the flow of bile, which the body uses to digest fats." Belly Be Calm also incorporates cinnamon, cardamom, lemon balm and ginger, a collection of herbs said to aid digestion by Ayurvedic practitioners. Rounding out the blend are antioxidant rich licorice, fennel and burdock root all considered to be digestive powerhouses by adherents of traditional medicine.
