Bloating is a common digestive issue caused mostly by diet, although it could be symptomatic of a deeper underlying issue. If it occurs very frequently, it requires a visit to the doctor.
Here are 5 foods that will not only help reduce bloating, it will also keep your stomach trim.
Known for its anti-bloating properties, peppermint has a calming and relaxing effect on an irritated stomach. It eases the digestive tract muscles. It is very useful for those suffering from IBS and cramps. A cup of peppermint tea does wonders.
Eating egg whites are helpful in reducing bloating. This is because the high protein content found in them acts as a diuretic.
Like eggs, curd or yoghurt is packed with proteins, eases digestion and improves one’s waistline. This does not include flavoured curd. If you’d like a bit of sweet, substitute it with a drizzle of honey.
Potassium-rich bananas help fight bloating caused by salty-rich food. The potassium helps drive out the water retention caused by salty foods. Ensure that you eat only ripe bananas to get rid of bloating and uneasiness.
Filled with high water content, cucumbers are an excellent ingredient to combat bloating.
