bubbles you swallow with your meal these

bubbles are the disastrous cause of

bloating in the first place some of them

are burped back out and that's a normal

process but if you swallow too much air

it collects in your stomach and small

intestine and causes bloating sucking on

a sweet smoking a cigarette or chewing

gum are typical ways that excess air

gets into your body so slow down and

number nine avoid gas triggering foods

no your mother did not lie when she said

that green stuff is amazingly healthy

kale broccoli and cabbage are indeed the

nutrient-rich and high fiber vegetables

you need to ingest to have a strong

digestive system however these foods are

also rich in raffinose raffinose is a

sugar and it can only be digested if the

bacteria in your stomach fermented its

fermentation produces gas and that's

exactly what causes you to bloat but

don't throw all these vegetables out of

the window Cynthia sass a registered

keep the amount you eat in check

steaming or boiling green vegetables

make you feel like there's a balloon in

your stomach check if you're digesting

the proper amount of salt advised by the

American Heart Association the

recommended limit is 1500 milligrams per

day for most adults that's a bit less

than a teaspoon

is the maximum amount you can eat if you

want to stay healthy unfortunately the

average American consumes much more

2,400 milligrams every day this leads to

problems with the heart and blood

pressure and bloating

Gastroenterology on may 1st 2000 you can

also take probiotic supplements instead

of yogurt but why not enjoy a healthy


if yogurt is too sour for you maybe add

some honey or jam to sweeten up this

morning treat number four avoid sugary

alcohol surprisingly you can find sugary

alcohols in practically all sugar-free

foods and chewing gums

they are meant to sweeten these foods

and are used as sugar alternatives and

they are generally considered safe at

the same time they may cause some

problems for your stomach because they

often reach the bacteria in the lower

part of your digestive tract as a result

the bacteria digest them and produce

excessive gas while doing so you can try

to avoid these sugar alcohols by

enjoying natural sweeteners such as

stevia this is an incredibly sweet plant

and it's been used to sweeten dishes and

stevia since 2008 another alternative to

adding stevia to your food is to replace

processed desserts with fruits

just 15 minutes of yoga might be as

useful as a pill and it's much healthier

belly they help your digestive tract
