Avoiding Bloating

Everybody loves to eat, but not everybody is ready to deal with or endure the aftermath of eating. This includes bloating. Nothing ruins enjoying a nice meal more than having the inflated feeling that makes you feel like you doubled in size. However, as easily as you become bloated, as easily it is possible to avoid it. Here are some tips and tricks that will help you avoid bloating:

  1. Don’t over eat – It may sound a little obvious, but often you get carried away when there is a lot of delicious food presented in front of you. However, if you don’t want your future self to hate you for overeating, it is best to restrain yourself and stop eating once you are no longer hungry.
  2. Avoid swallowing air and gas – This is pretty self-explanatory. Whenever you inhale and swallow, the air builds up in your intestines and stomach, which often leads to the bloating feeling. Also, avoid drinking soft drinks or champagnes that have carbon in them. It may seem insignificant, but it all builds up to annoy you later on.
  3. Take probiotics – If nothing else helps, or it is already too late, the best option is to take some probiotics. Here are some examples of the best probiotics to take:

Lactobacillus Rhamnosus – Helps maintain the healthy bacteria in your digestive system, as well as prevents the spread of harmful bacteria that may be causing the bloating feeling.

Glucoamylase – Helps absorb the nutrients from the food, as well as accelerate the digestion process and help the food settle down at a faster pace.

Bromelain – Bromelain is an enzyme that is used for reducing swelling and inflammation. Although Bromelain is not a probiotic, it is even better. It is an enzyme, which means that unlike probiotics, they can be produced naturally in your organism as well as taken as a supplement.

Bloating can be a pain in the… stomach, if you do not know how to properly deal with it. However, the best cure to bloating remains simply avoiding it. However if it is already inevitable, there is always something out there that can help you!
