#Ask Me: How to reduce Bloating sensation

Indigestion (also known as dyspepsia) happens to almost everyone from time to time. Eating habits or a chronic digestive problem can trigger indigestion. Abdominal bloating is a condition in which the abdomen feels uncomfortably full and gaseous, and may also be visibly swollen (distended). Bloating is a common complaint among both adults and children.
If an uncomfortable bloating sensation has you wanting to loosen your belt a notch or two, chances are you need to eat more and not less—more fiber, that is.A slow-moving digestive system can result in bloating and irregularity, but you can help get yours moving and ease discomfort by adding fiber to your diet.

One of fiber’s multiple health benefits is the way it helps maintain a healthy digestive system. Lucky for you, high-fiber foods also happen to be full of flavor. Consider starting your day with a nutritious morning meal that includes a high-fiber breakfast cereal (at least 5 grams of fiber per serving) and fruit.

This power duo ensures you’re getting both soluble and insoluble fiber; studies show that having both at once is better for maintaining regularity because they work in concert with one another. Ingredients to look for on your cereal box are wheat bran (insoluble) and psyllium (soluble).

 Later in the day choose dishes like barley or bean soup or a salad with pears, or reach for foods such as barley, peas, and citrus fruits. Just be sure to take care when adding fiber to your diet, though, as adding too much, too quickly has the potential to worsen bloating. Introduce new fiber-rich foods one at a time.
