Too much sugary foods, fatty foods, undigested protein foods or gulping down food leads to the food being partially digested, resulting in uneasiness in the entire digestive system which can disrupt life on a daily basis, if not rectified. So here is a list of few highly effective foods that can easily tackle gas and bloating.

Chamomile Tea
This exotic flower flavoured tea helps in improving the awkward burps you may experience when in public. So try having one or two cups of chamomile tea an hour before lunch and dinner to help calm your tummy.

Ginger
Ginger has anti-bacterial properties which acts as a natural antibiotic and flushes out all the bad bacteria that causes irritation in your tummy, in the form of flatulence. So, a piece of ginger in any form can help you to remain free from gastrointestinal disturbances.

Papaya
Papaya is rich in digestive enzymes and therefore helps in the proper breakdown of all the hard and undigested proteins, thus helping in preventing the putrefaction of undigested proteins, which is the main cause of gas.

Yogurt/Curd
Being abundant in vitamin D, calcium and phosphorus, curd is an easy and perfect remedy for frequent episodes of gas and bloating, as it has rich probiotic properties. It also helps in getting rid of the bad bacteria in the stomach. The daily consumption of two cups of curd or buttermilk will help in this regard.
