How often do you binge eat mindlessly, or munch on your favorite snack? Many times! In fact, you do all this knowing that it can make you bloated, constipated, or gassy. Aren’t we telling the truth? We can hear a big YES.

Gas is not always a result of binge eating or mindless snacking. In fact, specific dairy products, wheat, grains, fruits, and vegetables – all of these can produce gas, resulting in abdominal pain, digestive distress, and bloating. Apart from this, some people are prone to digestive issues like stomach pain and flatulence, which are associated with gas and acidity.

You’re probably also aware that if you don’t treat it on time; it can also hinder your day-to-day life by causing severe discomfort.

Worse yet, this gas can suddenly cause pain in your chest. And in that case, many people end up rushing to the emergency room!

Wonder what’s the solution? Well, it’s a drink. Recently, renowned nutritionist Apurva Agarwal shared a reel on Instagram in which she shows how to prepare a drink that can provide relief from acidity or gas in no time!

Here’s what her caption reads. “Many of us have experienced a painful burning sensation in the lower part of the chest. Often referred to as ‘acidity’. In fact, it’s common that most people choose to ignore it, but you shouldn’t. To prevent the risk of complications later, here is the best hack for an acidity fix.”
