Lots of things can cause bloating, including:
Unchewed pieces of food can put stress on the digestive system, leading to bloating.
Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth means more bacteria are fermenting the carbohydrates in our food. They release gas as a by-product.
Intestinal hyperpermeability can lead to maldigestion and inflammation, both of which contribute to bloating.
The stress hormone, cortisol, disturbs the digestive system and contributes to bloating.
Bloating is frequently associated with sensitivities to a certain food or food group.
Without enough stomach acid, food cannot be broken down properly. This can result in bloating and indigestion.
If you’d like to conquer your bloating, start with these three steps:
Most of us eat in a hurried state. This affects blood flow to the digestive system, hindering its ability to do its job properly.
Food that isn’t broken down properly puts stress on the digestive system, which can lead to bloating. In an ideal world, we’d all chew each mouthful 20 times. As much as you can, try to ensure each mouthful is liquid before you swallow it.
Functional testing can help you find out whether SIBO or leaky gut are contributing to your bloating. What’s more, the test report will show you what to do.
