There are different causes of an upset stomach—acidity, indigestion, constipation, or menstrual cramps are just some of the common culprits. Instead of tolerating the pain, here are some ways you can give yourself relief for your troubled tummy.
Eat a banana or papaya.
Bananas are said to contain pectin, which helps to naturally firm bowel movements, while papayas encourage digestion, ease indigestion, and also help with constipation thanks to proteolytic enzymes such as papain, chymopapain, caricain, and glycyl endopeptidase.
Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties that increase digestive juices and neutralize stomach acids. Aside from easing stomach problems, ginger also relieves pain from arthritis or muscle soreness, menstrual pain, upper respiratory tract infections, cough, and bronchitis.
