Gas, pain, bloating and a general sense of discomfort in the belly is all too common these days. Whether it is caused by food sensitivities, IBS or just eating too many rich, hard to digest foods, it is downright unpleasant. If you would like to avoid these feelings and minimize their occurrences in your life, try these all-natural digestive aids to tame your tummy and keep it working right!

1. Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is easily found in any grocery store and is totally affordable. Start your day with a tablespoon of ACV in room temperature water with a squeeze of lemon. This will increase the acid in your stomach and help you better digest your food. If you find yourself having frequent troubles, you may want to consider having a tablespoon of ACV before every meal.

2. Ginger

Yet another easy to find digestive aid. Ginger helps to prevent bloating, reduce gas, and stimulates digestive juices so that you can better break down your food. It also works as a natural muscle relaxant so it will calm your belly while reducing nausea. Try crushing a 2cm piece of fresh ginger in some hot water with a little bit of honey and lemon.

3. Probiotics

Sometimes, bloating and digestive troubles are caused by an imbalance of good and bad gut bacteria. This is especially likely to be the case if you have been taking antibiotics. A really good quality probiotic can help you restore this delicate balance. Look to your health food store or pharmacy for a probiotic tablet you can take on a daily basis. inpost [bctt tweet="5 Natural Remedies To Help Relieve Digestive Troubles"]

4. Get Moving

When you are feeling awful and have a big bloated belly, exercising is the last thing you want to do. But, it can help. It doesn't have to be anything strenuous. Even a gentle walk around your neighbourhood will help to get your digestive processes going.  If you need something to help you get moving, check out our Beginner Bootcamp Challenge. This 30-day challenge is ideal for those who are new to working out or are just getting back into it. In just 10-12 minutes a day, Edith will guide you through workouts that will make you feel challenged and not overwhelmed.

5. Take An Epsom Salt Bath

Epsom salts are not only great for post-workout recovery, they can also help with digestion problems. Epsom salts are a source of magnesium sulfate which can reduce inflammation and plays an important role in the digestive tract. It is best absorbed through the skin, which is why a bath is the best way to do this. Besides, having a nice, long, relaxing bath never hurts! Do you have frustrating digestive troubles? How do you find relief?
