As we approach the festive season, we’re getting ready to start indulging in our favourite food and drink, but one thing you’ll want to avoid, other than over-indulging, is bloating.
Recognising what drinks make you more bloated is important so you can avoid them. Alcohol does cause inflammation to the gastrointestinal lining of the gut and this results in bloating.
Sadly champagne is one of those drinks that are going to make you bloat.
It can also make you gassy and even give you diarrhea.
Avoid drinks that contain wheat, gluten and yeast as this will contribute to bloating. Also avoid the sugary, carbonated mixers which also lead to gas and bloating. Rather opt for drinks that have been distilled rather than fermented.
