If you're like us you probably would have tried the odd lemon or juice cleanse to help reduce bloating and lets be honest they can be hard work so forget the starvation and headaches here are a few tips to help cleanse and reset your gut...
💧 HYDRATE - Staying hydrated is key to flushing out toxins and allowing your bodies cells to function as designed to aid digestion
✋ MASSAGE - Massaging your stomach can help to move stools along the inside of your colon. It may help relieve symptoms of tightness, pressure, cramping and bloating. Daily physical activity keep us regular 💩 When we exercise, our intestines naturally contract and pass waste through our system. 🏋🏽♀️🧘🏻♀️🤸
🧂 SALT INTAKE - Eating too much salt can cause water retention, if you notice that you feel more bloated or puffy after salt loaded meals this happens because your kidneys wish to maintain a specific sodium-to-water ratio in your body. To do so, they hold on to extra water to compensate for the extra sodium you ate. Reduce your salt intake to reduce the bloat.
🍵 HERBAL TEA - adding a teaspoon of @coconutgreens to your herbal tea will hydrate & flush out toxins. Coconut Greens is a prebiotic and encourages good gut bacteria to help reduce bloating and better absorption of vitamins and nutrients and is high in potassium 🥥
🍌 BANANAS - are a good source of prebiotic fibre , which helps to increase good bacteria in the gut and improve digestion.
Since they are packed with potassium and soluble fibre, they help the body flush out excess sodium and reduce inflammation.
🍞 CARBS - carbohydrates are not our enemy however too many carbs can lead to water retention, cause fatigue, cramps and bloating. When you reduce your carbohydrate intake you increase protein which help to shed excess water more readily which will reduce that bloated feeling.
