Naturopath News: My Top 10 Anti Bloating Foods
Thank you to our Wellness Partner Emma Sutherland for this great article.
Unfortunately most of us experience bloating every now and again. Whether that's around TOM (time of month), due to food sensitivity or otherwise, bloating can be uncomfortable, annoying and make us feel down.
Naturopath Emma checked the research and decided on a list of foods that were therapeutically placed to beat the bloat! Let us know what works for you in the comments below!
Peppermint tea – peppermint has a natural anti gas effect
Pineapple – contains bromelains, an enzyme that aids protein digestion
Watermelon – the high water content helps remove excess sodium
Ginger – nature’s best digestive aide
Cucumber – has quercetin, a bioflavonoid which reduces swelling
Banana – rich in potassium, which helps to offset excess sodium and high in vitamin B6, a natural diuretic
Papaya – papain enzymes break down protein in the gut, reducing fermentation of undigested food in the colon
Asparagus – natural diuretic and kidney tonic
Fennel – add seeds to your food as it relaxes gut spasms and allows gas to move through the colon
Avoid dairy – lactose intolerance is a sure fire way to feel bloated!
