Heres what to eat for quick relief.
Sometimes gas and bloating can result when the bacteria in your digestive tract gets out-of-whack. Sumbal says that in these cases, the probiotics in certain fermented foods like kefir can help restore the bacterial balance in favor of the good guys to keep your digestion efficient.
You probably know that yogurt is a reliable source of probiotics, but perhaps you’re not aware that growingly-popular tangy kefir actually contains up to three times as many beneficial critters than does typical yogurt. And if you have trouble digesting lactose, kefir is nearly devoid of it.
Usually sold as a cultured dairy drink, kefir can be used in smoothies, as a buttermilk substitute in pancakes or something to float your cereal in. Just be sure to select “plain” varieties to lower your intake of added sugars.
