A bloated stomach is usually the result of changes in your body’s balance of salt and hormones. Increased levels of salt lead to water retention which leads to bloating. Here’s a few ways to fix a boated stomach:
- Reduce your salt intake
Try not to add extra salt to your meals and always read the labels when at the supermarket. About one teaspoon (6 grams) of salt is recommended per day.
- Eat potassium rich foods
Foods like bananas and potatoes help flush out salt stored in your body
- Drink more water
It might sound strange, but drinking more water can help because if your body is dehydrated it will try to hold onto any water it has.
- Try herbal duiretics
Herbal diuretics like chamomile tea and hawthorn have known to be very effective. Foods like watermelon and celery also do a similar job.
- Exercise regularly
Yep, good ol’ exercise again! Exercising regularly will help boost your circulation.
So next time you get a bloated stomach, remember these tips!
