10 Foods and Drinks That Help with Bloating

Bloating caused by excess gas or digestive system issues can be uncomfortable and painful. While underlying health conditions can cause chronic bloating, some foods and drinks can help relieve discomfort and bloating. These 10 foods and drinks may reduce bloating.


1. Ginger Tea

Ginger naturally reduces inflammation and can help the digestive system feel better. Ginger tea can help with digestion after a meal and relieve bloating.

2. Mint peppermint

People know that peppermint can relax the muscles in the digestive system, which can help with gas and bloating. It can help to drink peppermint tea or just chew on fresh peppermint leaves.

3. Pineapple

There is an enzyme in pineapple called bromelain that helps the stomach break down proteins, which makes it easier to digest. Eating fresh pineapple or drinking pineapple juice can help your intestines and make you feel less bloated.

4. Milk and yoghurt

Probiotics are good bacteria that help keep your gut microbiome healthy. Yoghurt has them. Eating foods like yoghurt that are high in probiotics can help keep your stomach in check and reduce bloating.

5. Fruit of the cucumber

Because cucumbers are mostly water and not many calories, they are a great way to stay hydrated and feel refreshed. They may also help reduce bloating. The high water level can help the body get rid of extra sodium and toxins.

6. Caraway seeds

People have used fennel seeds for a long time to treat stomach problems like gas and bloating. You can ease stomach pain and reduce bloating by chewing on fennel seeds or drinking fennel tea.

7. Apple papaya

Like pineapple, papaya has enzymes, like papain, that help your body digest food and get rid of gas. Eating fresh papaya or drinking papaya juice can help your stomach and make you feel less bloated.

8. Water with Lemon

Warm lemon water in the morning can help your body get rid of waste and speed up digestion. Also, drinking lemon water can help keep the stomach's pH levels in check, which can help with bloating and improve gut health in general.

9. Bananas

Bananas have a lot of potassium, which helps keep the body's fluid balance in check and stops it from holding on to water. Bloating that is caused by too much salt or changes in hormones can be eased by eating bananas.

10. Chamomile Tea

Camomile tea can help relax the muscles in your digestive system and get rid of bloating because it is anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic. Camomile tea can help your stomach and reduce bloating if you drink it after a meal or before bed.
