It can be caused by eating certain foods that lead to trapped gas, talking with your mouth full of food, or by standing up to eat.
The condition could also be caused by an underlying medical condition, like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
But you could lower your risk of stomach bloating by drinking green tea regularly, it’s been revealed.
Green tea is one of the best drinks for getting rid of trapped wind, claimed nutritionist Dr Kellyann Petrucci.
It contains compounds that reduce inflammation and promotes digestion.
Drinking a mug of green tea after breakfast, lunch and dinner should help to prevent the uncomfortable condition, she added.
“Bloating can take a day from great to gloomy pretty quick,” said Petrucci. “One minute you’re feeling confident, and the next minute you feel like a balloon that’s ready to pop.
“Certain foods and herbs can actually help de-bloat your belly quick. Items that you most likely already have in your kitchen or are super easy to find in any grocery store.
“Green tea is one of the best anti-bloating teas. It promotes digestion. It helps release gas, and it is a natural diuretic.
“Green tea is also packed with antioxidants, which can help repair the lining of your gut and reduce inflammation.
“For best results, consume 2-3 cups per day. However, green tea does contain caffeine. So if you’re sensitive, try ginger tea instead.”
Drinking green tea regularly could also lower your chances of developing cancer, nutritionists have claimed.
Its antioxidants could reduce the risk of breast cancer by up to 30 per cent, while lowering prostate cancer risk by almost half, said scientists.
But, you shouldn’t put milk in your green tea, as it reduces the overall antioxidant value, and thus loses some of its health benefits.
Stomach bloating may be caused by constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, trapped gas, and swallowing air.
Talking while eating or chewing gum could lead to swallowing air, which in turn, leads to bloating.
People are more likely to feel bloated after a big weekend – especially around the festive season.
Speak to a doctor if your bloating symptoms don’t go away, said the NHS.
It could be caused by something more serious, including ovarian cancer, it warned.
