    Over-the-counter diuretics may be an alternate solution for you if you can't seem to beat bloating through dietary changes. Detoxifying supplements that contain the active ingredient simethicone will dissolve gas quickly to prevent the development of larger bubbles from forming in the intestinal tract. Look for simethicone listed on the ingredient labels of over-the-counter aids.
