Brief Answer:
Flax seed may not help to recover from bloating.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you.

Flax seed may not help you recover from abdominal bloating problem.
It contains antiooxidants which may be beneficial in heart disease and cancer.
But there is no evidence that it may help to recover from bloating.
I hope that answers your question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
