The food that we eat goes down into the digestive system where it meets our digestive juices. These juices then begin to break down the food and one by-product of this action is gas.
This gas will usually pass through the body at one end or the other, but it can sometimes get trapped. Trapped gas can make us feel very bloated. It can be quite uncomfortable and even painful in some instances.
Fortunately, it is not usually too difficult to deal with and there are plenty of remedies available. There could even be a remedy readily available somewhere in your home.
Home Remedy #1: Baking Soda and Lemon
Baking soda is a substance that can be used in a surprising number of ways. It is often used in cooking but can also be used to help remove even the toughest of stains.
To use baking soda to relieve gas, first squeeze a whole lemon into a glass. Then, take a teaspoon of kitchen baking soda and add it to the lemon. Naturally, the solution will fizz up and you should continue to add more baking soda until it no longer fizzes. You should then mix this solution with a cup of water and then drink it all up.
