5 Drinks to Get Rid of Belly Bloat
More than 50% of our body is made up of water. This means it is really important that you stay hydrated. You should drink 0.46 fl oz per lb body weight per day. Experts recommend that you drink regularly throughout the day before you get thirsty. You should also pay attention to the following signs:
- Trouble concentrating
- Dark urine
- Dry skin
- Constipation and bloating
A bloated belly can make you feel pretty uncomfortable during the day, but the reason for it isn’t always dehydration. Bloating can be caused by several things, including poor eating habits: eating too fast, carbonated beverages or gassy foods (onion, garlic, cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, legumes etc.) can have unpleasant consequences. The following five drinks can help you avoid or at least reduce belly bloat.
Unsweetened green tea quenches your thirst, boosts your metabolism and can act like a prebiotic (non-digestible food fibers that stimulate the growth of good bacteria in your gut). You can drink it hot or cold.
Water with lemon or cucumber
Pep up boring water with a slice or two of lemon or cucumber. This adds variety and tastes amazing. Plus, it stimulates your metabolism. Our tip: drink still water. Carbonated water can cause bloating.
A smoothie made from fresh watermelon can taste wonderful and refreshing. Thanks to its high water and potassium content, this fruit helps to relieve belly bloat. Plus, it is low in calories.
Peppermint has many positive benefits. It relieves cramps and relaxes the body. This makes peppermint tea the perfect drink for getting rid of belly bloat. The tea tastes best when you pour hot water over the fresh peppermint and let it brew for several minutes.
Pineapple contains the enzyme bromelain. This reduces inflammation and stimulates digestion. A fresh pineapple frappé can thus help you avoid belly bloat. Plus, it tastes delicious!
