Bloating is the feeling when your tummy is stretched, puffy and uncomfortable.
It’s a common problem which can be caused by excess, wind, constipation swallowing air from talking while eating, and even a food intolerance.
Certain foods have been known to cause bloating, so the NHS advises to cut down on these. Beans, onions, broccoli, cabbage, sprouts and cauliflower have all been found to promote bloating.
But there are foods which help banish the feeling of an uncomfortable stomach. When it comes to bloating, pineapples shine.
Dr Kellyann Petrucci, coauthor of the health and lifestyle books Living Paleo For Dummies and Boosting Your Immunity For Dummies, states on her self titled website that pineapples are a rich source of bromelain, an enzyme that helps support protein digestion as well as soothes the digestive tract.
But to receive the full de-bloating benefits of pineapple you should make sure to eat the core.
Dr Kellyann writes: “The core of the pineapple has the highest concentration of bromelain.
“So be sure your pineapple is rich, which will soften the core. Or, use chunks of the core to make a smoothie or fresh juice.”
Filling up on magnesium-rich green leafy vegetables can also help stop bloating, according to Holland and Barrett.
It states: “Magnesium is a natural relaxant and constipation can sometimes be related to low magnesium levels.”
Magnesium-rich foods include green leafy vegetables, beans and lentils.
But another way to get magnesium, according to the high street health shop, is by bathing in Epsom salts.
Your body can absorb the magnesium in the salts through your skin.
Changes to your diet isn’t necessarily the only way to remedy a bloated stomach.
Holland and Barrett also recommends four supplements to help beat the bloat.
The first, is friendly or ‘good’ bacteria supplements. The high street health shop says these can aid digestion and help contract the negative effects of bad bacteria in your gut.
It adds: “Best of all, numerous studies have shown they may help ease symptoms of IBS like pain, gas and bloating.
“There are many different types available, so you may need to experiment to find one that works for you.”
Holland and Barrett explains: “Fennel has been used for centuries to help tame tummies. Drink it as a tea or take a supplement.”
This can help fight IBS symptoms like cramping or bloating.
“It works by relaxing the muscles of your intestines,”according to the health store.
“Try taking capsules before or during meals.”
Activated charcoal capsules are a natural remedy for bloating and excess wind, according to Holland and Barrett.
It says: “They work by absorbing excess gas from within your gut to relieve flatulence and feelings of fullness,” a claim that was supported by the European Food Safety Authority in 2011.
Activated charcoal is made by heating charcoal to a high temperature.
This combines the charcoal with oxygen to open up the millions of tiny pores between the atoms the charcoal is made up of, increasing its absorption abilities.
It’s recommended to take the tables after meals.
It adds: “If you are taking other medication, then you should take activated charcoal tablets either two hours before or one hour afterwards.
“If you have a medical condition involving your intestine, always consult your doctor first.”
Juicing guru, Jason Vale, recommended trying this drink on ITV’s This Morning to help beat the bloat.
