How can I reduce bloating?
There are a few things you can do to reduce bloating, starting with changing your eating habits.
Taking your time to eat more slowly can mean you’ll swallow less air when you eat, reducing gas buildup.
Drinking fewer fizzy drinks can also help with reducing the amount of gas you swallow.
If you find that you feel bloated at certain times or after certain meals, consider keeping a food diary to help you work out which foods trigger your symptoms.
You can also try to exercise more, as regular activity helps to improve your digestion.
If you’re suffering from trapped wind, you can also try to give your stomach a helping hand by gently massaging it from left to right.
This can help your wind to move through your system and relieve your discomfort.
How long does bloating last?
Bloating usually goes away within a few hours, as the excess gas will pass from your system.
However, if your bloating lasts for a long time (3 weeks or more) or you get bloated very often (more than 12 times a month) you should speak to your GP.
Severe or persistent bloating can be a symptom of an underlying health condition like IBS, coeliac disease, or ovarian cancer.
Is bloating and trapped wind the same thing?
Bloating is one of the symptoms of trapped wind, and you’ll often hear them spoken about almost interchangeably.
This is because bloating is usually caused by gas build up in the stomach that makes your stomach expand — essentially, trapped wind in your stomach.
It can happen for lots of different reasons, including indigestion, IBS, and constipation.
Some people also experience bloating around their period, when it’s caused by hormonal changes throughout their monthly cycle.
What supplements should vegans take?
A vegan diet contains only plants, excluding all meat and all animal-derived products like eggs and cheese, making it easy to lack the essential nutrients in your meals. If you’re vegan, you may benefit from supplementing: iron, omega-3, vitamin D, calcium, vitamin B12 and zinc.
