Stomach bloating, it’s something that we have all suffered with.
That bloated, sore feeling that you get that makes you feel sluggish, uncomfortable and unhealthy. TRUTH have compiled a list of the most effective ways to calm the bloating down and help to reduce the symptoms
Belly bloating — or the sensation we feel when our stomach’s feel distended or gassy — can be caused by a variety of factors. The most common ones, however, are dietary triggers (as in when a specific food doesn’t react well with our bodies), constipation, and in some cases, conditions like Celiac’s disease.
If you are confident that you not suffering from a more serious diagnosed condition, then that means bloating is most likely just caused by diet or constipation. And as “unsexy” as that may sound, the good news is there’s a ton you can do about both of those issues. It’s often just about being in-tune with your body and proactively avoiding your bloating triggers.
To discover what your food triggers are, the quickest and most accurate way is to have a food intolerance test. This will test your sample against 100+ foods and pin point exactly what is causing the issues for you. (For information on the TRUTH food intolerance testing service please email email@example.com)
Cut out the bread
Starches and refined carbs, like those found in many breads and pastas, can cause you to retain water and feel bloated. If you want to wake up feeling super light, think about avoiding these foods with your evening meal.
Bloating can also be caused by swallowing excess air. A way to help avoid this is by eating more slowly. So even when you come home super hungry, be conscious of the speed at which you are chewing and swallowing. Your body will thank you the next morning.
￼Sip On Some Lemon Water
Try sipping on water and lemon juice before bed. Not only is it refreshing but it can help to calm neutralise your stomach after a meal.
Or Ginger Tea
If lemon water isn’t your thing, try ginger tea. According to professional dietitian Helen Agresti on a piece for The Huffington Post, ginger may help deflate the stomach from gas-producing foods and alleviate bloating. I also find it to be a super relaxing pre-bed ritual!
