Bloating is a condition in which the stomach swells up soon after the meal. It happens due to indigestion, production of gas, and disturbance in the muscles of the digestive system. Water retention is caused due to the accumulation of liquid inside the body, cavities and tissues of the body. This majorly happens to ladies before periods and to people who live sedentary lifestyle as they sit for long office hours If you feel bloated, try these: 1. Drink at least 8 glasses of water. 2. Reduce salt intake which reduces water retention. 3. Keep moving 4. Legs up on the wall for at least 5 minutes. This puts your body in the parasympathetic state stimulating digestion.
