Bloating: Home remedies you must try
Nutritionist Simrun Chopra took to Instagram and shared a few tips and trick that can help you get rid of bloating and promote better digestion. Here's a list
1. Chew your food properly. It will not only help you get better satisfaction from the meal but also help in better digestion.
2. Eat smaller meals to give your digestive system a break. When you consume a bigger meal you tend to feel uncomfortable. Therefore, choose smaller meals to keep bloating at bay.
3. Soak dals and lentils before cooking. It can not only reduce cooking time but also help in digesting these easily.
4. Do not miss probiotics. Probiotics promote healthy bacteria in the gut and keep it healthy. Add curd to your meal daily to ensure probiotic intake.
5. Eat enough fibre daily. Fibre promotes digestion and prevents constipation. Better digestion will help get rid of bloating.
"If you're still experiencing bloating after following the above-mentioned steps, it could mean you have an intolerance of certain food. Your body could just be reacting to something you're eating. Finding your trigger food can be hard and takes time," Chopra says. Further, she mentions steps to identify if you are intolerant to a certain food-
1. Start writing down everything you eat
2. Write down how you feel post-meal- ok, bloated, gaseous, constipated etc.
3. Over a week or 2 you will start to see a pattern
4. Once you suspect a food, try and remove it for a week or 2 and see if you feel better
If you are experiencing bloating frequently, you must see your doctor as it can be a sign of some serious health issue.
