Benefits for Bariatric Patients and Digestive Health

  • Soothes the Stomach: Chamomile has been used for centuries to calm the digestive system and reduce inflammation, helping to alleviate discomfort and bloating that may occur after bariatric surgery.
  • Promotes Relaxation: Lavender is known for its stress-reducing properties. Since stress can exacerbate digestive issues, the addition of lavender may help promote a sense of calm and ease digestive distress.
  • Caffeine-Free: This herbal blend is naturally caffeine-free, which is important for bariatric patients who may be sensitive to caffeine's effects on the digestive system, especially in the early stages after surgery.
  • Supports Hydration: Sipping on this gentle, soothing tea can help patients stay hydrated, which is so important for overall health and healing after bariatric surgery.
  • Encourages Mindfulness: The warm, comforting ritual of preparing and sipping tea can provide a moment of relaxation and self-care, helping to reduce stress and promote overall well-being during the recovery process.
