If a nice warm cup of tea isn’t already part of your bedtime ritual, it might be time to add the wellness beverage to your routine. Sipping on the decaffeinated stuff is an easy way to calm your body straight into sleep mode, and when you mix in a couple of extra-special ingredients to the mix, you’ll also have the added bonus of fighting bloat while you catch those zzz’s.

According to nutritionist Regina Fazzini, decaf tea itself relaxes and soothes your body, helping to keep your appetite and hormone levels in check. And including ginger and lime can power up your mug with anti-inflammatory and metabolism-boosting effects. “Ginger aids in indigestion and expands blood vessel size, which increases body heat and allows you to burn more fat,” Fazzini tells SheFinds. “Limes are also great for digestion, but they’re also loaded in healthy nutrients and minerals like potassium, calcium, magnesium, and vitamins A, B, C, and D. Like other citric acids, limes boost the metabolism and can help you burn more calories and store less fat.”

Use ginger and lime to power up your mug of tea with anti-inflammatory and metabolism-boosting effects.

To make this tea for yourself—and reap the many benefits!—Fazzini says to boil a cup of water, then add in some grated ginger, letting it steep for about five minutes. Once you add in a teaspoon of lime juice, you’ll be totally ready to Zen out. Living that bloat-free life has never been so easy.

Here’s what those Insta-famous teas really do to your body. Also, try the tea that helps Jamie Chung keep her stomach happy after meals.
