Broccoli

Mom was right when she told you to always eat your greens! Not only do these sprouts contain anti-bloat compounds, but they're also high in Vitamin K  - which can help regulate inflammatory responses in the body!

 

 

All bell peppers have anti-inflammatory benefits, but those of the red variety have the most. According to research in the Journal of Food Science, this color of pepper is the highest of its kind in Vitamin C and bioflavonoids, which are both known to reduce the effects of belly bloat. 

Beets

A review in the journal Nutrients has linked eating beets with lower levels of inflammatory markers in the fatty tissue of the midsection. As an added health bonus, these roots have also been found to decrease the risk of plaque buildup, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes. 

Here's one for curry lovers! Tumeric, the spice that gives your favorite Indian dish its yellow color, is also great for your gut! Turmeric contains curcumin, a substance that has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Anyone up for some takeout tonight?
