Beat bloat

Shape (Malaysia) - - LIVE HEALTHY -

Herbs like thyme and cloves may help flat­ten your

belly. “Ol­fac­tory re­cep­tors in your gut cells re­spond to cer­tain scents by dra­mat­i­cally in­creas­ing the pro­duc­tion of sero­tonin, a neu­ro­trans­mit­ter that helps reg­u­late di­ges­tion,” Hatt says. Just in­hal­ing them, how­ever, may not be enough to do the trick, he adds. In­stead, try drink­ing thyme tea or chew­ing on a few cloves when­ever you feel bloated in order to keep your GI sys­tem run­ning smoothly.
