Looking to feel less bloated? Everyone experiences bloating from time-to-time and feeling bloated can be uncomfortable and even embarrassing. But you don’t have to resign yourself to feeling bloated forever. There are plenty of ways to de-bloat naturally, so you can start feeling more comfortable in your clothes and in your body again.
1. Take it easy on the Salt
Salt causes your body to retain water and can make your stomach bloat. To stop feeling sluggish, try to cut down on processed foods and restaurant meals (which often contain hidden salt), as well as adding less salt to your home-cooked meals.
2. Take digestive enzyme during meals:
Digestive enzymes specifically break down macronutrients such as carbohydrates, proteins, and fats into smaller molecules that can be absorbed and used by the body.
Klora’s Bloat-Digest supplement contains a blend of enzymes, including proteases, amylases, and lipases, among others. These enzymes work together to break down different types of food molecules. By increasing the amount of enzymes available, the supplements can help improve digestion and nutrient absorption, reducing symptoms such as bloating, gas, and indigestion.
3. Drink plenty of Water
Water is one of the best ways to flush out toxins and keep things moving through your body. Aim to drink at least eight cups of water a day and avoid dehydrating sugary drinks like sodas and juices.
4. Eat more Fiber
Fiber helps to promote regular bowel movements and decrease bloating. Aim to incorporate more foods that are high in fiber, like leafy greens, oatmeal, and beans.
5. Give Yoga a shot (no really!)
Yoga can be a great way to reduce stress, bloating and improve digestion. Certain yoga poses, such as the seated twist and the reclining twist, can help massage your digestive organs and reduce bloating. Stress can cause your body to produce excess cortisol, which in turn can bring on bloating. Taking time to relax and recharge can help to decrease your cortisol levels, so you’ll feel less bloated.
By supplementing digestive enzymes and following these simple tips, you can naturally reduce your bloating and reclaim your energy and comfort.
