Why You feel Bloated

Bloating is very common yet normal, and it is part of our digestive process. But what may not be normal, if you frequently feel bloated? If that is the case, then there’s an underlying reason that is putting your gut in a rut.


Have Gut dysbiosis: An imbalance in gut flora is known as dysbiosis. A reduction in certain species of probiotics may lead to a more sensitive gut, resulting in more gas and bloating

Having a food intolerance: Certain food intolerances or sensitivity to spicy or acidic foods can cause the gastrointestinal (GI) tract to have a more difficult time than usual. An undiagnosed intolerance to foods can cause a lot of bloating

Bowel obstructions/constipation: A little irregular from time to time, and that can make you feel bloated. This is majorly due to bad eating habits, not drinking enough water, lack of movement, and not eating enough fiber during the day.

Eat too quickly or don’t chew well enough: Eating too fast causes you to ingest too much air (a condition known as aerophagia), and which can cause bloating and gas. Also, eating too fast can lead to overeating. Slowing down to properly chew your food helps to break down larger particles of food into smaller ones, aiding digestion.

Have low stomach acid: Low stomach acid makes it hard for your body to break down food. This leads to heartburn and bloating.

Have functional digestive disorders: IBS and functional dyspnea are diagnosed when your body struggles more with digestion for unexplained reasons. Symptoms often include gas and bloating after eating.
