Gas Symptoms And Carbonated Beverages

Carbonated beverages act as a silent producer of bloating and gas. These seemingly harmless beverages produce air pockets in the intestines, which can lead to varying levels of discomfort and embarrassment. Passing gas during social functions often leaves you in an uncomfortable position. Not passing gas can leave you with a pocket trapped inside. Some trapped gas can cause enough pain that sufferers believe they are in the midst of a heart attack. Diet, particularly carbonated beverages, are the most common cause of excessive or painful bloating and gas.

Why are Carbonated Beverages to Blame?

Sweetened carbonated beverages have two issues that often lead to gas buildup. The carbonation causes irritation in the bowels, which can trigger an IBS episode or urinary incontinence. The carbonation creates air pockets within the beverage, which then cause discomfort in the intestines. Additionally, many carbonated beverages also contain fructose, another leading cause of bloating and gas. Fructose is a sweetener derived from fruits. New research shows that as many as one in three people suffer from fructose malabsorption, leaving them with bouts of diarrhea, vomiting, gas and bloating. Carbonated beverages act as a one, two punch to the digestive system, greatly increasing the chances of a gas related issue.
