What are Rennie Deflatine Sugar-Free Mint Tablets?
Rennie Deflatine Tablets are a treatment that works to relieve the effects of trapped wind. They work thanks to the active ingredient simeticone, which is an anti-foaming agent that reduces bloating, discomfort, and pain. These tablets gently disperse the bubbles of gas in the stomach that are causing the problems. These tablets also have antacid properties that help to relieve heartburn and indigestion.
What causes trapped wind?
Trapped wind is a very common condition, and is caused when we eat or drink, as that also brings in the air to the body. Most of this is burped out but some end up into the intestine or colon, where it becomes flatulence. Trapped wind can be caused by eating too fast or drinking fizzy drinks. Other causes include stress, wearing tight clothing in the waist, or going abroad. There are some foods and drinks that are more likely to cause trapped wind, which are:
- High fibre foods
- Fructose – a type of sugar that is hard to break down, found in fruit juice
- Fizzy drinks
- Fatty foods
- Dairy products
You will often feel bloated, or suffer from stomach pain and cramps when suffering from trapped wind.
