3 Unhealthy Habits That Cause Bloated Stomach
A number of behaviors can cause gas, bloating, and acid reflux. You know how uncomfortable bloating and gas can be. Nearly everyone has experienced bloating and gas pressure at some point in their lives. Acid reflux is not as common as bloating and gas and not everyone experiences reflux. There are three behaviors that can increase the chances of you experiencing bloating, gas and reflux. If you avoid these behaviors, you should have a reduction in abdominal discomfort.
1. Undigested Food.
Undigested foods frequently cause intestinal gas. Foods can remain undigested for several reasons. If you have gluten or lactose intolerance, foods with gluten or dairy products will be hard for your body to digest, causing gas.
If your stomach does not contain the proper intestinal bacteria, it will not be able to digest food appropriately. This condition may be caused by poorly absorbed carbohydrates, antibiotics or medications. Sometimes these same poorly absorbed substances also cause constipation, which also causes gas, bloating and abdominal discomfort.
