6 Tips To Make Bloating Go Away
Do you constantly bloat after eating? It’s not normal and actually it means your body is trying to tell you something. Usually when it comes to what you eat and with your gut health your body’s form of expression is to swell up, so remember to listen to it. Don’t worry if it’s your case, it’s way more common than you would think it to be. Every day we hear more cases of people who are feeling super bloated, but thank God there are a lot of easy tips to fix this, so keep scrolling to find out.
Watch Out For Food Intolerances
The most common cases of inflammation come from intolerances, that's why you can find gluten and lactose‑free food in almost all stores. But, how do you know that you have an intolerance? You can tell depending on how your inflammation feels… Are you feeling pain and gassy? Then the best advice we can give you is avoid all foods that make you feel that way. But first things first you need to find out what your intolerance is. A great and easy way to do this is to have a food log, write down everything you eat each day and after a couple of days you’ll be able to notice a pattern that could help figure it out.
Have you heard of the famous probiotics? We’re fans of this little bacteria (yes, we said bacteria but don’t get scared) that helps your body be healthy. If you don’t know them, we'll explain it to you; probiotics are tiny good bacteria that help you feel 100%. They have several pros, including fighting off bad bacteria when you have too many, supporting your immune function and controlling inflammation. We recommend you have 1 probiotic in the morning before breakfast, we promise you’ll see changes immediately!
Don’t Forget About Prebiotics
You already know what probiotics are, now we have to tell you about prebiotics. Yes, they’re almost the same and only one letter changes, but that makes aaaall the difference. Both are good for your gut, but they help in different ways; prebiotics with an e are a source of food for your gut’s healthy bacteria. They’re like carbs your body can’t digest. So they go to your lower digestive tract, where they act like food to help the healthy bacteria grow. They are amazing for your digestive system. You can take them as supplements or get them through food, for example you find them in apples, berries, asparagus, oats, green vegetables and cocoa just to mention a few.
Include Omega 3 Into Your Diet
If you are feeling bloated and need extra push to feel healthy inside and out, then you need to include Omega 3 in your diet, why? If you're dealing with two or three pounds of PMS water weight, we recommend you to have salmon for your next meal. Women who took 2 grams of an omega‑3 fatty acid supplement per day (about the amount found in a 3‑ounce fillet) were significantly less bloated, we know this thanks to a study of the Complementary Therapies in Medicine. But there is a bonus! The study also revealed omega‑3s can boost PMS‑associated mood problems. So you can feel good and be happy.
Eat Potassium Rich Foods
There is another type of bloating that is very uncomfortable.. The one that comes after eating too much salt are we right? The best tip for a quick‑ish relief is not only to drink tons of water, but eat foods with potassium, like what? You can have a banana, avocado or sweet potato. Both water and potassium help flush excess sodium and fluid out of the body… write this: it also can be helpful when you're on your period.
Try Dandelion Root, Peppermint or Ginger Tea!
Are you looking for a quick but effective way to eliminate swelling or fluid retention? You need to prepare a lemon ginger tea, and no... we are not referring to a tea bag, but grated ginger with hot water and lemon juice. Take it on an empty stomach and you will see an almost instantaneous change. The top thing is that this ingredient not only has anti‑inflammatory benefits, but also helps with circulatory and blood flow disorders, muscle pain and spasms, as well as gastric and digestive disorders.
