Gas can stop being a problem for those who suffer the consequences of this issue on a daily basis. There are natural remedies to relieve the discomfort or to get rid of it completely. But there are also food supplements, either in capsules or tablets or even in tea bags, that will help us prevent this health problem. There are many causes, since it is not always triggered by the food we eat, there are other ciurcumstances as well.
Why does gas happen?
The production of gas by the organism is mainly due to:
- An excessive or scarce consumption of fiber from the diet
- Cereals and Seeds
- Green Leaves
- Soda drinks
There are other reasons why we produce gas and they have nothing to do with the type of foods that we eat. This problem can be due to eating very fast during the day, without taking time to chew calmly what we are eating.
Those who suffer anxiety, nervousness, stress, or people who have eaten more food than usual can also experience this intestinal problem.
This is why we suggest not only paying attention to what we eat, but we also think that it is important to spend some time to do so. It is advisable to have a more specific time to eat and do it calmly in order to avoid intestinal problems.
Sometimes, these intestinal and digestion problems are a warning that there is something wrong. An excess of gas during the night is a symptom of a leaky bowel syndrome. This disorder is mainly triggered by an intolerance to many foods. In this case, it will cause intestinal problems with a lot of abdominal and stomach pain, and even nausea.
Are there any remedies?
There are several supplements that can help to improve or get rid of gas in the body. Infusions have been traditionally use to solve this problem, even though there are different tablets and capsules made of:
In general, all of them are equally effective remedies and they are not harmful for our health. Since each body is different, we suggest trying more than one of these natural remedies in water to see if they can help your relieve this problem more than other products. There is a wide range of tea bags as well different tablets available at HSN.
It is advisable to use:
- Probiotics: they help to restore the healthy bacteria in the intestine that encourage a proper digestion after eating. Add probiotic foods to your diet, such as yogurt, kefir, kombucha and vegetables like sauerkraut or kimchi.
- Digestive Enzymes: another reason why we could suffer from this problem is due to the fact that we are not capable of metabolizing the foods properly after eating. This is when the digestive enzymes come into play by performing important tasks during the digestive process. They are completely natural, made from ingredients like papaya and bromelain (which is present in pineapples). Digestive enzymes work together to completely break down the amino acids, fatty acids cholesterol, simple sugars and nucleic acid from food so that they can be properly absorbed and to prevent them from causing gas or bacterial residues in the stomach.
Buy anti-bloating supplements

Mint has calming and antispasmodic properties for health that relieve the cramps and spams caused by the gas. The carminative effect of mint relaxes the digestive tract, which allows the gas to go through it more easily. Taking mint relieves indigestions, stomach and intestinal disorders. It has anti-microbial properties. It calms the muscles from the stomach and improves the bile flow.
The gingerol that is present in ginger inhibits the growth of the Helicobacter pylori bacteria which has a positive effect on the treatmnet of stomach and flatulence problems.
Ginger increases the secretion of gastric juice and the intestinal peristalsis, which results in a better digestion and blood flow. The spicy ginger root does not irritate the mucous membranes, rather, it protects the stomach and prevents the onset of intestinal disorders.
All these natural components are good remedies against flatulence, not medicines. Apart from the tea bag format, you can also purchase tablets or capsules, which are easy to transport and consume.
