GAS AND BLOATING

Gas and Bloating are a common and embarrassing problems that derive from a poor digestion of some foods such as cereals, fruit, vegetables and legumes. Nevertheless the mentioned food is essential for our daily diet as it is a fundamental nutrient for our organism.

NOT DIGESTIBLE OLIGOSACCHARIDES

Not digestible oligosaccharides are complex carbohydrates, contained in a wide variety of cereals, legumes, fruit and vegetables.

Fruit and vegetables, besides being rich in vitamins and minerals, favour regular intestinal transit but can also induce fermentation processes, causing bloating and colic disorders. Not only vegetables and fruit, but also sugars present in dough, bread and white flour cause bloating and abdominal tension, just like legumes and nuts.

Our organism does not produce the enzyme that can digest these oligosaccharides, so that they arrive unchanged to our colon where they ferment causing: SWELLING, FLATULENCE, BLOATING

To help digestion and prevent bloating it is important to take up some good habits and follow a balanced diet, rich in vegetables, and learn to chew slowly, avoid the consumption of soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, do not smoke, choose food grains rich in fibre and avoid refined flour.
