Get ginger. Candied ginger is not only a sweet treat, it can reduce the amount of gas in your digestive system. That’s according to research from University Hospitals in Cleveland. They say there’s a compound in ginger – called gingerol – that reduces inflammation in the intestines, helps the body break down and digest carbohydrates, and stimulates the release of bile… And bile is what breaks down fats, which can irritate the intestines. All you need are two slices of candied ginger when you’re feeling gassy and bloated. And if gas is a chronic problem for you, make candied ginger a daily treat. It can cut gas by 40% or more.
