Are you frequently bothered by that too-full feeling you get in your belly? Yes, then blueberry is the right choice of fruit to opt for.
Bloating is common after a big weekend party or over a festive season. But for some people, bloating is more than an occasional inconvenience.
If your stomach or tummy often feels bloated, it could be due to:
- swallowing air (from talking while eating etc)
- Coeliac disease
- food intolerance
- irritable bowel syndrome
All Berries like blueberries, strawberries and raspberries are high in water content – 85 to 95 percent water — which can help decrease bloating.
They are also high in fiber, which can help food move through the intestines more quickly and decrease abdominal pressure and bloating.
Berries also add bulk to your meal and can help relieve conditions like constipation, which are sometimes the cause of bloating.
Take Note: Foods low in fiber, high in sugar and heavy on the dairy can really mess with your digestive system
