What Causes Gas And Bloating?
When your digestive system isn’t working properly, your whole body can feel off. There a number of factors that can affect your digestion. Read on to find out if your eating habits and lifestyle are the cause of your tummy troubles and learn what you can do to help ease gas and bloating.
Are You Eating Too Fast?
When you’re hungry, it’s tempting to just inhale your food as quickly as possible to feel full. But what you don’t realize is that when you don’t chew your food properly it slows down your digestion. The enzymes in the stomach can’t process big chunks of food that fast, and that reduces the digestive time as well as the amount of nutrients you’re getting from the food.
Chew Your Food Well
Taking your time when you eat benefits you and your digestion. Make sure that you give yourself time to not only eat your food, but to enjoy it. Chewing 25 to 50 times can aid your digestion, because that way your food is finely ground up into small particles that your stomach can absorb much easier.
Do You Feel Constantly Bloated and Gassy?
Sometimes it seems bloat just doesn’t go away no matter what you try. The constant gas may start to impact your daily routine and slow you down. That full-of-air feeling could be a sign that you need to change your diet or that you have an overgrowth of yeast and/or bacteria in the small intestine.
