Stomach bloating - the best drink to prevent trapped wind pain at home

Stomach bloating affects most people at some point in their life, according to the NHS. But you can prevent the swelling pain from developing by regularly drinking peppermint tea.

Bloating can make your stomach swollen, hard and is usually quite uncomfortable.

Your swollen pain can be caused by eating certain fizzy foods or eating too fast or too much.

But, one of the best and easiest ways to limit the risk of bloating is to drink peppermint tea.

Peppermint has been used as a traditional remedy for digestive problems for a long period of time.

"Traditionally, people use natural remedies, including herbal teas, to relieve swelling," said nutritionist Marsha McCulloch.

She wrote on Healthline: "Peppermint is widely recognized for helping to relieve digestive problems. It has a fresh and refreshing taste.

"Animal studies also show that peppermint relaxes the intestines, which can relieve intestinal spasms – as well as the swelling and pain that can accompany them.

"Mint tea has not been tested to swell. However, one study found that a single tea bag provided six times more mint oil than a serving of mint leaf capsules. Therefore, mint tea can be quite powerful".
