[h=2]2. Eat Pineapple:[/h]Fresh pineapple contains bromelain, a protein-digesting enzyme, so try some after a heavy meal. Fennel may also help by combating flatulence.






[h=2]3. Have a Cup of Tea:[/h]Peppermint and chamomile teas are particularly good at easing indigestion and bloating. Green teas and teas made with fresh mint can be particularly effective too.
