Notes


One in 10 Americans suffer from regular bloating. In some cases, it can become severe enough that it causes distention – a noticeable swelling of the abdomen. This is a serious digestion problem. Distention may mean the digestion tract is blocked.


Bloating and gas are usually tied to what and how we eat – eating too fast, drinking through a straw, chewing gum and consuming bloat-inducing foods and drinks like beans, dairy and soda. There are many ways to help reduce gas and bloating.


Detox water recipes will contribute to remove bloating or distention. They will also curb cravings and flush out toxins. Over time, one will observe a flatter belly and I more healthy digestive system.
