She swears by an unusual thing when the flies – artichoke.
She said: “Artichoke – okay I know this sounds so weird but I’ve got it in tea and in pills and believe me, it works so good.
“I take it before my flight, during my flight or after my flight, it doesn’t matter. It just works.”
There is some science behind Robine’s suggestion of eating or drinking something with artichoke in to help prevent bloating.
Artichokes are a great source of fibre and can help with digestion. By drinking tea or taking tablets with artichoke extract in, you can help speed up your digestion and avoid feeling bloated.
Robine had a couple of other tricks for flyers wanting to avoid feeling ill – hot water with lemon, and celery juice.

She said: “On the morning of your flight, take a cup of hot water and some lemon and squeeze it in.”

“I even take it every morning right now and it works the best.”
She then shared the things you should avoid drinking if you don’t want to feel bloated. She said: “Try to hold back on the Coke and on the juices, believe me, they are the worst.”
