There’s nothing worse than spending your days feeling bloated, heavy and sluggish. No one wants to walk around all day feeling like someone’s blown up a helium balloon in their digestive tract.
Bloating can be stubborn, painful and seemingly impossible to get rid of. What’s worse is that many people accept bloating as a normal digestive symptom.
Common causes of bloating:
– drinking beverages during meals
– chewing gum
– eating in a rush
– a lack of fiber from fruits and vegetables
Here are few tips to help you beat the bloat:
1. Allow your previous meal to digest before eating the next meal.
2. Chew well and don’t talk while chewing.
3. Eat fruit at least 30 minutes before meals.
4. Don’t drink anything cold while eating.
5. Chew on fennel seeds or sip a hot fennel and ginger tea.
Below, we’ll look at the top home remedies to use if you’re looking for a way how to get rid of bloating quickly.
Lemon Baking Soda Water
Baking soda can neutralize the acid and, thus, gives you relief from the discomfort of gas or bloating. Plus, baking soda is very common kitchen stuff. Such an easy and fast treatment, isn’t it?
– baking soda
– lemon juice
Dissolve half a tablespoon of baking soda into a cup of warm water, add a little lemon juice and drink it.
Ginger tea for gas and bloating
Like peppermint, ginger tea is also a great way for a better digestive system. With ginger tea, saliva, bile and gastric juice production are stimulated. Therefore, if you have a big meal that is poorly digested, ginger tea is capable of reducing the potential for intestinal gas and flatulence resulting from that. If you already have bloating problems, the relaxant properties in ginger will come in handy and help to relieve gas stuck in your digestive system.
– fresh ginger
– a little honey/lemon
What you have to do is:
Rub the ginger under warm water and slices it.
Make ginger tea with hot water. You can add honey or lemon for better taste.
Cover it all for around 5 minutes.
Take a sip and enjoy.
Note: The best time to drink ginger tea is before or during having a big meal.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar can be used to aid in digestion and has many beneficial properties.
To use, add one tablespoon of unfiltered apple cider vinegar to a glass of warm water. Drink slowly 2-3 times a day on an empty stomach.
