10 Tips for Making Foods Friendlier to Your IBS Tummy
Change up your drink routine.
The best way to make your drinks IBS-friendly is to make sure they don’t contain alcohol, caffeine, or carbonation. Caffeine can annoy your colon if you have IBS-D; carbonation is gas, and you don’t want more gas in an already gassy stomach. Alcohol is a laxative and feeds intestinal organisms.
So what do you drink instead? You can make safe and soothing teas from chamomile, peppermint, ginger, and fennel. Brew the tea and leave it to cool before keeping it covered in the fridge for a delicious summer treat. Sweeten it with stevia, and you have a sweet, friendly, and soothing beverage.
