Traditionally used for ulcers, upset stomach, heartburn and diarrhea,
papaya contains papain, a natural digestive enzyme that helps break up
foods that may be irritating the stomach.

Oat Bran

It's a signficiant source of both soluble and insoluble fibre (soluble
dissolves in water; insoluble doesn't). You need both types for
digestive health. Bonus: Oat bran lowers cholesterol. 

3. Apples

Most Popular

Not only are they high in insoluble fibre, they're also rich in pectin
and other enzymes that help break down and rid the body of irritating
food particles. Sensitive stomach? Try thejm baked, not raw. 

4. Cinnamon

Traditionally used to treat both morning sickness and diarrhea, cinnamon
is also effective for breaking up gas bubbles. Sprinkle it on savoury
foods (like chicken) as well as on sweet ones (apple pie).

Fennel

This herb's a natural antigas remedy, which is one of the reasons you
often see it offered at the end of a meal at Indian restaurants. Half a
teaspoon of fennel seeds should do the trick.

Avocado

Exceptionally high in potassium, fibre and stomach-friendly (and
heart-healthy) oils, avocados help keep things moving. Try a few thin
slices on a sandwich instead of mayo.
