Lemon water

Drinking plenty of water alone is great for the digestive system; however, lemon-infused water is very beneficial when it comes to reducing bloat. Lemons are a natural diuretic which helps aid the body to reduce extra water in the body, while also acting as a gentle laxative when added to warm water. Drinking a cup of lemon in warm water every morning can help aid in your digestion and keep the bloat at bay.

 

Peppermint tea

Peppermint tea is also another great morning drink to help sooth your stomach. Peppermint contains an oil known as menthol oil which is the active ingredient to help keep our stomach’s flat. The menthol oil is known to relieve spasms in the muscle tissue, and reduces any unwanted gas or air to be released which can cause bloating. Try incorporating a cup of this into your daily routine for a happier and healthier stomach.

 

Minimize FODMAP Foods

A high-FOPMAD diet (Fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols) is a group of foods that are hard to digest, and could be one of the reasons for stomach cramps and bloating. These include certain fruits and vegetables such as broccoli, onions, garlic and beans. To reduce bloat, try cutting out certain foods that are high in FODMAP and see if you notice a decrease in your stomach ailments.

Regular Exercise

Exercise is a great way to get your digestive system working and can relieve abdominal bloating. The more you move, the easier gas can pass through the digestive system. Regular cardio exercise could be the key to reducing weight loss and bloating which can lead to a calmer, flatter stomach reduce stress levels

When your mind and body is relaxed, so is your gut. The gut-brain axis is the biochemical communication between the brain and the digestive tract, which if impacted by stress can cause your stomach to react negatively. When you are experiencing stress or discomfort, your stomach imitates your brain, which can result in the uncomfortable bloating sensation you may encounter. Instead, try take a relaxing bath or go and get a therapeutic massage at your local spa. The sooner you reduce your stress levels, the quicker you may experience relief.

Probiotics

Another common cause of bloating is the number of bacteria living in your intestine (or digestive tract). For our digestive and immune systems to function correctly, it requires a balanced level of bacteria to exist. This is usually done by maintaining a healthy diet; however, some people naturally experience a lack of good bacteria. If you are feeling that you are lacking, probiotics are a great way to add good bacteria back into your system while aiding in digestion.
