Dulco gas against a bloated feeling

What causes a bloated feeling?

A certain amount of gas is always present in the human gastrointestinal tract. This gas mainly consists of carbon dioxide, nitrogen, oxygen, sulfur and sometimes methane. It is caused by intestinal bacteria that do their work there. In small quantities this does not cause any complaints, but eating and drinking certain foods can increase the amount of gas to such an extent that you will be bothered by it. You then suffer from flatulence, burping and the feeling that your belly is very bloated. In some cases it can make you sick. This is mainly due to carbohydrates that are not digested in the small intestine but which continue as food for the large intestine.
In addition, there are other factors that can contribute to bloating. These include stress, medication use, old age, smoking and various disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (PDS) and Crohn's disease. There may also be an intolerance to certain foods such as, for example, a lactose intolerance.

  • Don't eat in a hurry, take the time to chew your food well
  • Do not eat and talk at the same time, you also swallow a lot of air
  • Do not skip meals, a lot of gas is caused by your intestines being empty for a while
  • Do not drink carbonated soft drinks
  • Eat less starchy vegetables such as onion, beans, peas, lentils and leeks
