These natural quick-fixes can help with gas and bloating problems

Make use of these all-natural remedies for instant relief from bloating and gas problems.

The fact is, nobody can deny having experienced bloating at some point in their lives. This uncomfortable feeling can be traced to either a buildup of gas in the digestive tract or an increase in abdominal pressure. The tummy may expand when you have gas, and it may also feel sensitive or unpleasant. Gas causes gas to build up in the digestive tract. The most common reasons for experiencing bloating are due to overeating or consuming foods that cause gas. It is a relatively common issue that only lasts for a short period of time, and it almost always gets resolved on its own. On the other hand, it can develop into a persistent issue for certain people. Therefore, it is important to gain an understanding of the factors that can cause bloating as well as simple treatments available.

Causes of Bloating

Let’s make an effort to gain an understanding of the various factors that can lead to bloating:

  • Low stomach acid: If you have low levels of stomach acid, the food won’t be broken down very well. The larger pieces are able to pass into the intestine, where they ferment and cause inflammation as well as bloating.
  • Sluggish liver and gall bladder: A slow liver and gall bladder are another cause of bloating. These organs are responsible for the secretion of bile and enzymes to help digestion. If you don’t have these, the food that doesn’t get digested might cause havoc in your gut, which leads to bloating.
  • SIBO: SIBO is a condition in which an abnormally high number of bacteria are found in the small intestine, where they are not supposed to reside. They begin feeding on the meal as soon as it enters their bodies, which causes gas and bloating.
  • Overgrowth of unwanted bacteria and yeast: Sugar, processed and fried foods, a lack of sleep, stress that is not properly controlled, and other factors can all contribute to an overgrowth of bacteria in the large intestine that is not desirable. This, in turn, causes irritation to the lining of the intestine, which leads to the production of harmful gases and bloating.
  • Intolerance to certain foods: It’s possible that the cause of your bloating is a dietary intolerance, such as gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, sugar, maize, nuts, or even things that you’re not even aware of!
  • Your mouth: The first one begins just where you are right now, with your mouth. If you do not chew your food thoroughly, if you eat too quickly, or if you talk while you are eating, then you are not properly breaking down the nutrients in the food that you are consuming. This may cause abdominal distention.

Natural remedies that can be used to treat bloating

  • Kitchen ingredients: Acquire some common kitchen ingredients like ginger, fennel, ajwain, and aloe vera to help relax the lining of the digestive tract and make it easier to expel gas from the abdominal region.
  • Digestive drinks: Lemon water, herbal teas, and kanji are examples of digestive liquids that are good for acidity and can be included in a daily diet.
  • Probiotics: Taking high-quality probiotic supplements can help improve the population of beneficial bacteria in the gut, which can in turn reduce the likelihood of experiencing bloating.
  • Breathing: The release of stress hormones can be minimized by practicing conscious breathing throughout the day, particularly before and after meals.
  • Herbs: Bitter herbs, such as dandelion and chamomile, stimulate the digestive tract and stimulate the flow of all of the essential digestive juices, which in turn reduces the amount of gas that is produced.

Conclusion

It’s possible that your eating or lifestyle habits are to blame for the occasional bout of bloating you experience, but if you’re feeling bloated all the time, you should investigate the underlying causes. In addition to that, it is recommended that you participate in some form of physical exercise on a daily basis in order to eliminate gas and bloating.
