Fight bloating
August 26, 2018, 3:03 pm

Bloating is a major problem that many people face due to abdominal problems, excessive food or even some food allergies.

Bloating and gas are usually tied to your diet, and the type of foods you eat and what you drink. It is already well-known that to fix bloating problems you should cut out fizzy drinks from your diet and eat your food slowly. But here are a few other simple changes that may help.

Papaya: We won’t find it all the time in the refrigerator, but it is readily available in just about every supermarket. Not everyone has given papaya a try yet, but it has a sweet taste, and its texture is similar to cantaloupe. What is great about papaya is the enzymes it contains can aid in digestion, and reduce bloating.

Yogurt: A digestive aid, as it is so rich in probiotics, ‘friendly’ bacteria that can really improve digestion, and may even help ease other digestive problems like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Drinking yogurt before bed time does a great job.

Bananas: Potassium is the banana’s secret weapon when it comes to fighting bloat since it helps the body maintain normal sodium levels. Excess sodium is one of the primary causes of fluid retention that often causes bloating.

Peanut butter: Peanut butter has niacin, which is beneficial for the digestive process, and improved digestion means that the probability of bloating is reduced. If you’re one of those people that loves peanut butter, 2 Tbsp a day should do the trick

Watermelon: Surprisingly, drinking water helps reduce bloating by flushing excess sodium from the body. In addition to all that water, watermelon also boasts generous amounts of vitamin C and potassium, which helps prevent bloating by making less sodium build-up.

Cucumber: Cucumbers are helpful to kidney function, which will help eliminate uric acid from the body that can accumulate and promote bloating. There are a number of ways to work this vegetable into your diet, including as part of a salad, sandwiches or eating it alone.

Asparagus: Asparagus is beneficial for at least two reasons: It has a high water content which has a diuretic affect on the body, and helps keep fluid retention under control. It also helps promote the growth of those beneficial probiotic microbes in the digestive tract.

A few simple dietary changes can reduce the chances that you’ll have to deal with that problem of bloating again.
