Even very slim women know the problem: Your stomach is bloated as if you had inflated a balloon under the shirt. However, many people are unclear why. There are many causes of bloating: lactose or fructose intolerance, gluten intolerance or dysbiosis. In addition, some people also react violently to chemical foods such as preservatives (typical when eating in restaurants). But do not panic. We have found a food that gives you a remedy: Ginger is a real all-rounder! It has a disinfecting effect against bacteria and viruses, promotes blood circulation, helps against nausea and generally has a positive effect on digestion. If your stomach is bloated regularly (and believe us, we women know it all), you should urgently put ginger on your diet.
