Common causes of belly bloat

Bloating occurs when fluid or air is trapped in the digestive tract. It can be caused by an imbalance of electrolytes – sodium and potassium. Too much sodium can cause bloating, so I bring things back to balance with potassium-rich foods. Since bloating is common in both adults and children, I’ve created several smoothies for bloating, specifically to fight this discomfort.

Home remedies for bloating

Instead of reaching for medication, it’s worth giving these natural remedies a try, especially when it comes to belly bloating. If bloating is an underlying symptom, then make sure to reach out to your doctor for a treatment plan, as diet isn’t always enough. However, most often bloating is caused by a diet low in fiber. Up that fiber intake so that gut can do a happy dance. While green smoothies for bloating are a great fiber starter, here are some other natural ways to help with bloating:

Get hydrated

Hydration helps prevent bloating, as well as cure existing bloating. That may seem counterintuitive if you’re retaining water, but drinking plenty of water can help move excess water through your system, particularly if you add some fresh squeezed lemon juice. Now, hydrated doesn’t just mean fluid of any kind. Liquids high in sodium (soda, gatorade) or sugar (juice) aren’t going to help, instead they’ll make the symptoms worse! Make sure water is on the menu every single day.

Detox your body of bloat-causing food

One of the most common reasons that people try a cleanse is bloating. And while beginning to eat high fiber foods may cause some bloating, by day 4-5, you’ll start to notice that flatter, less swollen stomach (along with better sleep, hydration, energy, and so much more!). Both my Seasonal Cleanses and Seasonal Cleanses were created with ingredients that break down the trapped gas + fluid and help keep that digestive tract moving.

    So yummy! I didn’t have any Papaya, so I just added a little extra pineapple and it still tastes refreshing and delicious. I can’t wait to try it with papaya!

    1. Great swap idea Anna. Let us know what you think of it with papaya! 🙂

  3. Hi there,

    This sounds amazing! Is this one rib of celery, or the entire stalk of celery?

    Cheers!

    I’m not the biggest papaya fan, but this smoothie is super soothing. Definitely needed during the holidays when I tend to indulge in bloating foods.

    1. Way to go for it! I love papaya, so I have no clue what you’re talking about. Haha! So glad it helps with your bloating!
