Bloating is so uncomfortable and can create pain as well as social discomfort. Let's talk about 5 simple ways to decreasing bloating and lose weight naturally!
What causes bloating?
First, we need to get to the root cause of bloating. It can be physical or emotional. Our gut health has a lot to do with bloating, due to a condition called "leaky gut".
In the case of leaky gut, the gut lining has small holes that allows toxins and food particles to leak through the intestines into the bloodstream.

This creates inflammation, which can lead to bloating in the body.
