    For three weeks I have been drinking a mix of 8 ounces of unsweetened cranberry juice, 24 ounces of water and two tablespoons of flax seed meal. I am not bloated all the time anymore. I don't have hardly any gas at all and my bowel movements have become much more regular. It's tart, but it works. I don't recommend sweetened cranberry juice at all. I used it once in a pinch, and it was NOT good. Good luck!

    Peppermint tea can help with bloating.

    Water, lemon juice and a dandelion root tea bag together in a water bottle.

    Edit: It's not the best tasting but it's also not the worst tasting :)

    100% cranberry juice mixed with water. Trader Joe's sell 100% CJ @$3.99 per bottle.

    2 ounces CJ with 7 ounces water or 2 ounces CJ with coconut water - works really well.

    This is my go to for water retention.

    Costco sell their own Kirkland brand of coconut water @$9.99 per box of 12.

    You might wanna look at your diet and see what foods are contributing to your bloating. Prevention is the best medicine.

    Tons of water with lemon slices. Takes a day or two to kick in for me. If its a week or so before your cycle and its really bothering you, you could try Midol PMS.

    Also - keep in mind that getting gas might be your bodies allergic reaction to a specific food. Keep track of what you're eating and it will be helpful in determining what is causing it to happen!

    I find ginger a great remedy for bloating, I put fresh ginger and lemon slices with some boiling water, let infuse and drink either hot or cold, and it's delicious!
    Failing that.. Ginger beer!
  • Check out Vitacost online and take a look at the reviews for Sonne's #7 (detoxificant) and Sonne's #9 (intestinal cleanser)! The two of those work so well together and really help with bloating. I love it!

    Water with lemon or apple cider vinegar. Also cutting down on your sodium intake and making sure to drink at least 8 cups - that's 64 fl oz of unadulterated water - per day can help prevent bloating.
  • i use to have terrible bloating problem as well .. now i've started drinking homemade fruit
    shakes atleast 5 days of the week and my bloating has decreased alot!
    orange juice
    rasberrys
    bananna
    strawberrys
    blueberrys
    Very tasty and it works for me .. idk if it'll work for you but can try it ..
  • also i drink green tea to help too but it does'nt do as great as my shake :#
