The bloat represents a discomfort which is big enough to ruin our mood especially when it comes to the willingness to take physical activities. It makes us feel heavy and can provoke abdominal pain and excessive intestinal gas. In this case the best remedies are carminative plants because they favor the elimination of the gases.
This herb stimulates the enzymes needed for digestion. It also reduces the pain and intestinal spasms and it removes the gases. It can be consumed fresh. You can grate the ginger and add it in drink (for example lemonade) or you can simply add a few slices of ginger in your food. There is also ginger tincture which should be diluted in water (a spoonful per 100 ml) and consumed three times a day.Read More

Drink it all as an infusion. You prepare it by adding a teaspoon of crushed coriander in 250 ml of boiled water.
