When you’re working hard to have the healthiest feeling body possible, one of the most frustrating things that can happen is feeling stuffed, gassy, and bloated…
And it can be especially disheartening when it happens during this time of year.
Because having unpredictable gut health can put a serious wrench in so many of your favorite activities.
But I’ve got some great news…
There are easy, effective things you can do to make tremendous strides towards better gut health — and start getting rid of that bloating tonight.
And I thought I’d share them with you today!
#1: Drink Less Coffee
I know for many of you, starting the day with a warm cup of java seems like a requirement. But if you’re worried about the health of your digestive tract, this might be the best place to start.
That’s because coffee increases the amount of acid produced in your body, acid that irritates your gut — a recipe that can lead to serious bloating.
If you’re hooked on coffee, try cutting back to one cup a day for starters. (And be careful about turning your cup of joe into a milkshake — adding cream and sugar only increase your risk of bloating.)
#2: Eat Ginger or Drink Ginger Tea
Ginger has been used for centuries to help with all kinds of ailments.
That’s because it contains two compounds — gingerols and shogaols — that reduce inflammation in your gut and help the muscles in your intestines relax.
If you’re looking for an easy way to add ginger into your diet, try drinking a warm ginger brew.
Just take some raw ginger and cut it into very thin slices.
Then, boil them in water for around 10 minutes. To add some flavor, squeeze in some lemon and drizzle a little honey in as well.
And if you’re up for a quicker fix, you can always try powdered ginger root. Either one will work wonders.
#3: Try Eliminating Dairy
While it seems like everyone these days is concerned about the amount of gluten in their food, it’s more likely for people to have a sensitivity to lactose.
Lactose is the main sugar in milk, and in order for it to be properly processed, you need to have an enzyme called lactase.
You have plenty of it growing up, but as you age, you produce less and less of it.
That means it becomes extremely difficult for your gut to break down cow’s milk and other types of dairy, which leads to that dreaded bloated feeling.
Try out these tips for a few weeks, and see how much better you feel. If you’re lucky, your bloating might even disappear altogether.
Don’t forget — for an extra level of healthy digestive system support, taking Stonehenge Health’s Dynamic Biotics daily is the best way to keep everything in balance.
