Let’s face it, we’ve all been bloated at some point and it’s not the best experience. To feel uncomfortable, stretched and full can be a regular occurrence for many of us, whereas others won’t experience it as much (lucky bunch!).
What is bloating?
In the simplest terms, bloating is a build-up of gas in your digestive system causing your abdominal area to look and feel swollen. This can be caused by food not being digested or absorbed properly but there are a number of causes, all of which vary from person to person.
What causes bloating?
You may be lactose intolerant: Some people often don’t realise that they cannot digest lactose, a type of sugar found in dairy products. If you get bloated after eating certain types of dairy, try cutting it out for a week to see if there is a correlation.
The veggies: That’s right, even the healthiest of foods can cause excess gas. Leafy greens, beans and cabbage are examples of healthy food groups that are high for producing gas.
Too much of one food group: A lack of a varied diet can soon have its impact on your digestive system. Too much carb heavy food including rice and potatoes are harder for the body to digest while a salt-heavy diet is no better. Salt contains sodium and sodium causes your body to hold water, causing your belly to bloat.
Not enough water: Did you know dehydration slows the digestive process up? When your body feels dehydrated, it holds on to excess water, causing you to feel fuller.
