6 Foods That Actually Relieve Gas - Food #1

There is no way I could not pass this one on and yes it's from the Grandparents.com
site!

Say goodbye to post-meal bloating, pain, and embarrassment when you add these gas-busting foods to your diet.

Whether it’s physical discomfort, like sharp, jabbing pains and a swelling or tightness in the stomach, or the embarrassment of belching or flatulating uncontrollably, we’ve all experienced that distressing moment (or series of moments) when your body is overrun with gas.

The good news is that we’re all in this together. I have yet to meet someone who has not burped, farted or clutched their bloated stomach and cursed their respective gastrointestinal gods for undue discomfort. The great news is that there are foods that can actually help your body combat gas, and we’ve rounded them up just for you.



Dandelion Greens
A bitter herb like dandelion seems like it would churn your stomach into a gassy knot, but this backyard nuisance is actually a bloat and gas-fighting all-star. Dandelion greens pack a bloat-free punch by acting as a diuretic and ridding the body of excess water, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. Dandelion greens also prevent gas by increasing stomach acid production and stimulating digestion, according to naturopathic doctor Dr. Ivy Branin from Simplicity Health Associates in New York City. “Stomach acid is crucial in proper digestion,” said Branin. “If foods are properly digested, gas and bloating are prevented.”


Whole Foods Market says the greens also offer a trio of vitamins—A, C and K—and recommends adding them to salads and stir-fries.
