The bloating after a meal that many people experience is one of the most common, annoying and embarrassing things. When food is digested in the esophagus, gases are produced as byproducts that accumulate in the lower abdomen causing bloating in some cases and abdominal distension in others. In some rare and serious cases, the gas itself tends to move up, which can cause serious problems such as angina.
Anyway, here is a list of foods that generally cause bloating and gas buildup more than other foods:
Lentils are usually more difficult to digest than others. The few sugars they contain make gas an important by-product of digestion in the stomach.
- Cruciferous vegetables
Because the cellulose it contains is indigestible, a large amount of air is released as the body tries to digest it. Apricots and peaches are also known to cause symptoms due to their high sugar content.
They are high in simple sugars, which makes digestion a bloating affair. Also, fiber containing cellulose and indigestion does not help with swelling and swelling.
- Milk and artificial sweeteners
Many people are lactose intolerant, the sugar in milk, and many people find artificial sweeteners like fructose difficult to digest.
Now that we know the problem points, let’s take a look at the solutions to these problems.
Here are four essential oils that can help calm your bloated stomach and put gas in the grave.
- Peppermint oil
This is by far the best of the four remedies and can be taken internally as capsules and externally in oil form.
If taken externally, it calms the visceral muscles in the abdominal area and thus reduces cramps. Relaxed muscles, in turn, do not trap gases, which reduces their accumulation.
- Ginger oil
Ginger has long been used as a wrapping agent to help burn fat. The spice helps generate heat in the body, which in turn helps the body release tension in the fatty muscle fibers in the abdominal area and release the gases that have accumulated inside.
- Chamomile oil
This is a wonderful essential oil that can be taken internally and is gaining popularity through its use in gourmet flavored chamomile tea and yogurt.
It acts instantly and positively on nausea, stomach acidity, diarrhea, etc. It also reduces contractions, a use that the adult female demographic can notice.
- Cumin oil
Cumin, in the form of oil or even as a weak tea, is known to stimulate the metabolism and increase the rate of digestion in the body. This in turn results in less and less gaseous byproducts in the abdomen.
An increased metabolism also affects your overall health quotient and also helps with weight loss and building muscle mass.
