Beat Bloat NATURALLY [No Drugs Needed!]
A bloated belly can really make you miserable.
Nothing quite puts a damper on the day like walking around feeling like a balloon in the Macy’s parade.
If you’re lucky, your swollen belly is just uncomfortable.
But that full feeling can become downright painful if it’s a bad bloat day.
Before your next battle with a gassy tummy, stock your medicine cabinet with these NATURAL bloat blockers.
Over-the-counter bloat solutions might seem harmless. But the truth is, like all meds, they have potential side effects.
Ironically, calcium carbonate products (like Tums) can CAUSE gas. Other common side effects include nausea, vomiting, dry mouth, and loss of appetite.
Even worse, taking too much calcium carbonate can lead to high blood calcium levels, low phosphate levels, and kidney problems.
Simethicone products (like GasX) can cause nausea, constipation, diarrhea, or headache.
So, why not try one of these six NATURAL bloating solutions instead?
- Probiotics: Boosting beneficial gut bacteria is a natural fit for ALL kinds of digestive issues, including bloating, diarrhea, and ulcerative colitis.
A review of 70 studies concluded that probiotics can improve bloating and regularity in people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) while decreasing its severity.
- Ginger: This herb has long been established as a digestive aid. Many of us already turn to ginger to help with nausea and vomiting. But now research reveals it can ease bloating too.
In women who underwent C-sections, ginger helped relieve abdominal bloating and swelling. In other research, ginger sped up stomach emptying in folks battling indigestion. (Faster movement through the digestive tract can ease bloating.)
- Peppermint oil: Studies show this delicious-smelling remedy reduces IBS symptoms by as much as 40 percent.
Peppermint oil is a natural anti-inflammatory and contains L-menthol, which suppresses muscle spasms in the intestines.
- Digestive enzymes: These natural enzymes break down food, leading to better digestion. This can ease indigestion symptoms, including bloating.
One study found digestive enzymes were as effective as prescription meds for relieving digestive issues, including bloating, nausea, and indigestion.
- Psyllium: This plant fiber adds bulk to your stool, relieving constipation, a common cause of bloating.
Psyllium also targets intestinal inflammation easing bloating as well.
- Vitamin D: The sunshine vitamin is truly a Jack of all trades. Vitamin D can even help with digestive issues.
Folks with IBS who took 50,000 IU of vitamin D daily for six months had SIGNIFICANT improvements in GI symptoms such as bloating, stomach pain, and gas.
To head off bloating BEFORE it begins…
- avoid overeating
- don’t eat too quickly
- ditch carbonated beverages
- avoid chewing gum
- skip the straw
- cut back on gassy foods like lentils and beans
