Ayurvedic Singapore Tips to Ease Bloating and Gas Issues
Recurrent gastric issues are direct fallout of what we eat. Our system might be allergic to certain food items. Here are a few tips on what to eat to help you ease gas and bloating of your stomach, the Ayurvedic Singapore way.
Before we embark on the remedial measures for gastric irritations and bloating, let’s see what we can eat first. As per the expert from Ayurveda Singapore, low-fructose fruits are the best bet, as they reduce the risk of producing too much gas and bloating. But you need to consume fruits with low sugar.’
According to the expert at Ayurvedic Singapore, fruits such as apples, blackberries, grapes, strawberries, and raspberries are low in sugar. Fruits that need to be avoided include bananas, cherries, grapes, mangoes, and watermelons, which have relatively high in natural sugar.
Besides these low-fructose fruits, one can consume plenty of whole grains. Citing a study, the expert at Ayurveda Singapore says, “As per the research report, people who consumed at least three servings of whole grains daily are 20% likely to die early, in contrast with those who consumed less than one serving a day. Also, the former runs a 14% risk of cancer and a 25% lower risk of death from a heart ailment. What’s more, as whole grains contain Vitamin E, niacin, and zinc, they are also good for your eyes.”
The expert from Ayurvedic Singapore touches upon the consumption of leafy greens and raw salad vegetables. “Vegetables that are green and leafy, including chard, kale, and spinach, are awesome sources of fiber and vitamins such as A, C, and K. Besides, folate in the leafy vegetables aid digestion. The sugar content in them would help the good bacteria in your gut increase, thus improving the microbiome. Fruits, nuts and seeds, vegetables and whole grains are prebiotic foods that foster good bacteria and help the microbiome to increase.’
Elaborating on probiotic foods, the expert at Ayurveda Singapore says that probiotics in food form are otherwise called functional foods. These probiotics thrive on the diversity of gut flora in the large intestine. So, when ingested, the live bacteria ‘compete’ against disease-inducing microbes in the gastrointestinal tract and eventually try to inhibit their harmful effects.’
Subsequently, the good bugs in the gut dampen allergies and sensitivities and support the immune system. The expert at Ayurvedic Singapore adds that this will eventually reduce inflammation and further enhance nutrient absorption.
Homemade curd or yogurts and buttermilk are suitable for gastric irritations, while kefir has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. Similarly, soft cheese (probiotics) too is good for your bowel. Soy-based items such as tempeh and miso are also great choices. Agreeing with most gut experts, Ayurveda Singapore agrees that kimchi, the Korean condiment made from fermented cabbage and spices will help thrive the levels of good bacteria in the gut and eventually help improve intestinal health. “Drink plenty of water and keep yourself hydrated!” is the Ayurveda Singapore expert’s advice.
