Avocados

These pear-shaped fruits are packed with potassium. Your body needs potassium to manage its sodium levels, which in turn controls the amount of water you hang onto.

1

Bananas

Bananas deliver a potassium punch. Experts think that’s because they deliver certain gut bacteria that help calm gas production in the belly.

2

Celery

Crunch into some celery for a hydration boost to get your digestion moving. As a bonus, celery also provides certain flavonoids that reduce inflammation in your body.

3

Turmeric

This spice that gives curry its yellow color contains a good bit of the compound curcumin. Studies show curcumin can tame IBS symptoms, regulating the digestive system, and reducing bloating.

4

Peppermint

Studies show peppermint capsules can help relax the muscles in your digestive system. This helps push gas through to relieve stomach bloat. Peppermint tea can have the same calming effect. 

5

Ginger

Spicy-tasting ginger gets your gut juices flowing. This aids your digestion and helps your stomach empty faster, which prevents bloating. 

6

Asparagus

Known for making your pee stink, asparagus is a good source of inulin, an insoluble fiber that feeds the good bacteria in your gut and helps keep you regular. 

7

Fennel

This root veggie and its seeds have a compound that relaxes spasms in your GI tract. With fewer spasms, gas can get through your gut more easily so bloat doesn’t build.

8

Tomatoes

A diet that includes tomatoes will load you up on lycopene, an antioxidant that works as an anti-inflammatory all over your body.

9

Kefir

Some studies say drinking kefir, a fermented yogurt-like beverage, takes away stomach gas by as much as 70%. Kefir helps break down the sugar in milk that can lead to bloating and pain.
