Say goodbye to bloating
Stomach bloating is so common these days it’s been called an “epidemic.” Do you regularly suffer from bloating? It can be extremely painful, really uncomfortable and sometimes difficult to control. We’ve found some natural, food based remedies that should help to ease even the most troublesome of tummy’s without the need for medication or a diet overhaul.
A well-known remedy for an upset tummy, ginger also provides a welcome relief for bloating. Try ginger candy, ginger tea, and adding fresh ginger to yogurt or a stir-fry.
Flush out urine while simultaneously flushing out that bloated feeling. Asparagus contains prebiotics, which like probiotics, help support good digestive bacteria.

Leafy greens like bok choy help reduce bloating because they contain dietary nitrates that increase the expansion of your blood vessels, increasing circulation in the areas that need fluid removal, like a bloated tummy.
