Get Rid of Bloating

Fennel or chamomile tea

A cup after a high-fiber meal can aid digestion. 


Asparagus and cruciferous vegetables (like cabbage, Brussels sprouts, and broccoli) contain indigestible sugars that can cause gas. Avoid eating them with fatty foods, which may slow digestion.


Rosemary, bay leaf, and ginger can help break down the indigestible sugars of cruciferous vegetables and beans. Add while cooking to reduce gas and bloat.


Legumes’ notorious reputation comes courtesy of those same indigestible sugars as those found in cruciferous veggies. Cut down on them by soaking dried beans for at least eight hours before cooking, and by rinsing canned ones. 


Its live and active cultures help quash gas production by upping the good bacteria in your gut (and there’s no need
to pay more for types labeled probiotic).


Bran’s fiber isn't digested by the body, so don’t eat too much. If you want to increase your intake, drink lots of water—it helps fiber move through your system.
