Bloating is so common, and it can be an embarrassing thing to talk about and you may wonder what can reduce bloating. There are a few different causes of bloating with means that some remedies can be more effective than others. In this blog we’re going to give you some simple tips you can make to help banish bloat!
- Sleep. Getting a good amount of sleep (8 is great) can help normal bowel movement. Sleep can also reduce your stress levels, which can also upset the balance on your gut.
- Staying Hydrated. When your body is not hydrated, it will hold on to the water it does have (this is known as water retention), which is similar to bloating. Make sure you get plenty of fluids to help hydrate your bodys cells but also because water can aid digestion.
- Get Moving. When you’re bloated, get active. This keeps fluid moving through your body and can also gases further through your system, helping to stop bloating.
- Eat Fermented Foods. Kimchi, miso and sauerkraut are fermented foods which contain probiotics. These foods can help balance the bacteria in your gut, releasing enzymes which break down food and make it easier to pass waste through.
