Stomach bloating is a common condition that affects most people at some point in their lifetime. It can make your tummy feel swollen, puffy and it’s generally uncomfortable. It’s the last thing you want after a nice, large dinner.
But making some small changes to your diet could help to get rid of your bloating pain, or even prevent the condition from developing in the first place.
Apple cider vinegar could help to stimulate digestive juices, and relieve bloating pain, states TV doctor, Dr Mehmet Oz.
Just a single diluted tablespoon of apple cider vinegar can help to get rid of trapped wind, he said.
The best time to take it is just before a meal, along with a cup of water or tea.
“You can also take a dose as soon as you feel heartburn symptoms coming on for a quick fix,” said Dr Oz.
“Some theories suggest that heartburn occurs because of low stomach acid levels; so vinegar brings that level up. If you hate the taste of this mixture, try adding a dollop of honey,” he added.
You could also reduce your stomach bloating by eating specific herbs and spices, it’s been claimed.
Ginger is one of the best herbs for relieving trapped wind pain, as it contains carminative properties.
Carminatives help to release gas and prevent bloating, according to medical website Everyday Health.
If you’re still suffering from a bloated stomach, try doing some cardio exercises.
The exercises – which include walking, swimming, cycling and jogging – help gas to pass through the digestive system.
Doing cardio exercises for just 25 minutes could help to get rid of stomach pain.
People that do exercise regularly are generally better at expelling trapped wind from their bodies, scientists have claimed.
Trapped wind is one of the key causes of stomach pain, along with eating too much food, and swallowing too much air.
You could be swallowing air by talking with your mouth full of food while eating, drinking through a straw, or by chewing gum.
Speak to a doctor if your bloating symptoms persist, it could be a sign of something more serious.
