Stomach bloating is a common condition that affects most people at some point in their lifetime, said the NHS.
It could be caused by eating too much food in one sitting, talking with your mouth full of food, or even by eating while standing up.
But you could lower your chances of developing a swollen belly by making some small changes to your daily diet.
One of the ways to get rid of painful stomach bloating is to drink more dandelion tea, it’s been claimed.
Dandelion tea should be added to your diet to prevent trapped wind, claimed TV doctor, Dr Oz.
The drink works by boosting digestion of big, fatty meals, revealed the doctor.
It could even help to get rid of the excess water that commonly makes people feel bloated.
“Bloating is a common, day-to-day battle that can leave you wondering what triggered your bulging belly,” said Dr Oz.
“The answers may be hidden in what you’re eating.
“Start the fight against bloating today by identifying the common culprits, and what you can do to keep your belly flat and pain-free.
“Dandelion tea is a mild diuretic that will also help get rid of the water your body is holding onto.
“It stimulates bile to help break down fatty meals that also make you bloated.”
Everyone should aim to drink a single mug of dandelion tea every single day, he added.
Alternatively, try adding more magnesium to your diet to avoid feeling bloated.
Magnesium fights fluid retention, while helping the body to expel trapped gas.
The best sources of magnesium in your diet include leafy green vegetables, spinach, legumes, and nuts.
You could also lower your risk of stomach bloating by avoiding certain foods, including beans, onions and broccoli.
Swallowing air may also lead to trapped wind, added the NHS. You could swallow air by talking and eating at the same time, or even by chewing gum.
Eating regular meals and downsizing your portion sizes should help to ward off painful stomach swelling.
You should see a GP if your bloating symptoms persist, said the NHS.
Bloating, and persistently feeling full, are key signs of ovarian cancer, it added.
