How to bid farewell to belly bloat

Can’t remember the last time you finished a meal without a bloated belly and feel like gas is your constant sidekick? Here’s how to help regain your digestive comfort.

More than half of Australian adults grapple with gut-related issues, including bloating, gas, and constipation.

The root cause can involve various factors, including gut sensitivity, dietary considerations such as medically diagnosed gluten, lactose or fructose sensitivity, or disturbances in the gut microflora.

Strategies to ease bloating

There are a number of lifestyle habits you can adopts to reduce the discomfort associated with bloating.

Stay hydrated

Staying well hydrated can help the digestive system break down food efficiently, helping to reduce risk of constipation, which can cause bloating.

Fibre-rich diet

A fibre-rich diet promotes regular bowel movements, which can prevent the build-up of gas.

Fibre-rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, legumes, seeds, nuts, oats, breads and cereals can help to keep your digestive system functioning smoothly.


Probiotics like yoghurt, kefir and fermented foods bring good bacteria to the gut and contribute to a healthier digestive system.


Regular physical activity enhances overall health and supports a well-functioning digestive system.

Aim for at least 30-minutes a day of moderate intensity exercise.

Help from digestion-friendly ingredients

Herbs such as peppermint and ginger have soothing properties and are traditionally used in Western herbal medicine to relieve abdominal bloating, wind pain and indigestion symptoms.

Sweet orange, also traditionally used in Western herbal medicine, helps stimulate gastric secretions.

A combination of digestive enzymes such as amylase, lipase, protease and tilactase play an important role in helping to break down sugars, carbohydrates, fats and lactose to sustain a healthy digestive system function.
