It is a very common disorder that can strike at any age. Very often it is caused by the ingestion of food too quickly; eating voraciously almost without breathing between one bite and another, in fact, also leads to ingesting a certain amount of air, which then causes that annoying feeling of tension in the abdomen.
If the phenomenon occurs daily , the cause can be found in an excessively rapid food intake ; trying to slow down the pace at which meals are consumed will provide the solution in this case in a few days.
If, on the other hand, the feeling of bloating recurs frequently and in special cases, such as following the consumption of certain foods, it is good to first of all exclude the presence of food allergies or intolerances.
It is obviously important to exercise (it promotes intestinal motility and stimulates stomach activity) and, from a food point of view, to follow a healthy and balanced diet ; but in case of alimentary bloating it is good not to exceed with the consumption of fibers and to privilege the cooked ones, which undergo a smaller quantity of fermentation processes in the intestine.
Substances such as Fennel , Ginger , Thistle , Turmeric , Algae and Inulin have a positive effect on the digestive system and can alleviate this ailment; it can also be useful to promote the well-being of the intestinal flora by taking prebiotics, probiotics and ad hoc plant extracts.
