Gas and bloating! At one time or another, we have all experienced this feeling of discomfort whether you have consumed too many carbonated beverages, eaten your food too quickly, or just had a meal that antagonized your stomach.
The good news is that there are steps you can take to not only reduce gas and bloating but to end the symptoms and discomfort altogether. When our bodies contain the right amount of good bacteria in our digestive tracts and our colons, negative side effects such as gas and bloating are greatly reduced.
How do you achieve this proper balance of good bacteria? Enter probiotics! Probiotics have the ability to speed up digestion in a way that doesn’t allow your system to get backed up, therefore reducing the sensation of gas and bloating.
Bloating And Gas 101
While it may feel like a balloon animal is being created in your abdomen, you may be wondering exactly what gas and bloating are.
Gas is primarily caused by food intolerances or swallowing air when you eat or drink. You can relieve some pressure by burping, but ultimately gas forms in your large intestine when fiber and some starches and sugars aren’t digested into your small intestine leaving you searching for some relief.
Bloating is considered to be a buildup of gas in both the stomach and intestines. However, in addition to feeling bloated from something such as a carbonated beverage or a large meal, bloating can also occur from menstruation and constipation.
With that being said, women are much more likely to suffer from gastrointestinal issues than men due to changes in estrogen and progesterone that cause women to retain both more water and salt. Studies have shown that between 10-25% of healthy people suffer from occasional abdominal discomfort with 10% saying they suffer regularly.
How Do Probiotics Help Reduce Gas and Bloating?
Probiotics are a known powerhouse for helping to combat both gas and bloating. When you take probiotics, you are helping to restore a healthy balance to your gut. When you have the right amount of good bacteria running through your digestive tract and colon, you are much less likely to suffer from the discomforts that come along with gas and bloating.
Studies have also shown that probiotics speed up digestion which prevents your system from backing up. Wondering when to take your probiotics? They are most effective when taken on an empty stomach so they have a direct pathway to the gut—but only if the strains are stomach acid resistant (like Xyngular Complete Collagen.) Keep this in mind when deciding the right time to take your probiotic. Most people see results and start feeling significant benefits when they have been taking their probiotics for two to three weeks. This gives the probiotic a chance to reduce inflammation while decreasing your bad bacteria and increasing your good bacteria.
Taking proper care of your gut and your digestive system is the key to better health. Foods known for causing gas and bloating include carbonated drinks, peas, beans, lentils, mushrooms, certain fruits, cabbage, onions, and whole-grain foods to name a few.
Beat bloating and the discomfort that comes along with it by drinking water instead of carbonated beverages. Consuming spinach, cucumbers, sweet potatoes, or cooked cruciferous vegetables, fresh herbs, and strawberries are all fresh choices that are much less likely to cause gas and bloating.
