How To Avoid Gas Symptoms Altogether

Gas is a fact of life. The human body produces it on a daily basis. It is a natural part of the body’s functions. With that said, gas can be embarrassing, painful and can cause uncomfortable bloating.

Why Am I So Bloated?

This is a common question. There are a number of factors that can contribute to bloating, and since everyone’s body and digestive system is different, there is no one definitive answer that fits all. Here are some common answers to the question: “Why am I so bloated?”

The Type Of Foods You Eat

There are numerous foods that can contribute to gas and bloating, here are just a few:

  • Veggies such as broccoli, asparagus, beans and potatoes
  • Sodas and other carbonated drinks
  • Sugar
  • Milk and other dairy products
  • Eggs

This is by no means and exhaustive list. Each of these foods may affect you differently than they affect someone else. Some people have no trouble with dairy, some do.

Swallowing Excess Air

This is a big culprit, and one you may not think of. If you eat fast, if you chew gum or mints, if you drink fast or drink a lot of soda, then you may be swallowing excess air throughout the day that contributes to bloating and gas.

What Can You Do?

You don’t necessarily need to avoid all gas-causing foods, although if there are a couple that cause severe problems, you may want to limit or stop them completely. Good digestive health is a big factor. Making sure that you consume adequate soluble and insoluble fiber is helpful. Digestive enzymes are also a good way to combat bloat.

Charcoal is a great weapon in the fight against bloating. It comes in tablet form and is a more effective alternative to other over the counter gas remedies. CharcoCaps can be taken to prevent and soothe gas synptoms on a daily basis.

Eating mindfully is another surefire way to reduce bloating. Slow down when you eat. Chew your food carefully. Don’t gulp down your beverages. Remember that chewing gum can cause you to swallow air.

Keep these tips in mind and you should notice a significant improvement when it comes to uncomfortable and embarrassing gas!
