Uncomfortable and even embarrassing, bloating is a serious problem that more and more people are experiencing every day.
If your stomach is so swollen than you can’t button up the pants as you used to, then you are one of those having problems with bloating. This condition is caused by excess gas in the intestines.
A key factor in reducing intestinal gas and bloating is keeping food moving through the digestive process as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Food that sits in the stomach or intestines for too long can create a feeling of constant fullness and bloating or it can also lead to food that has not been fully digested entering the colon where it will ferment and produce excess gas and cause bloating.
Wrong eating habits, imbalance of hormones and certain foods can contribute a great deal to the appearance of bloating.
You should avoid eating large quantity of beans due to the presence of certain sugars that some people can’t digest appropriately. Also limit the intake of cruciferous vegetables, such as cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts which are high in sulfur compounds and aggravate the bloating.
