What are Wind-Eze Chewable Peppermint Tablets?
Wind-Eze Tablets are a form of treatment for those who are suffering from flatulence. These tablets work by dispensing the tiny bubbles in the wind that cause flatulence. This will also ease bloating in the abdomen.
What is trapped wind?
Trapped wind is felt with discomfort in and around the digestive system. This is because of a build-up of pressure in the abdomen. Trapped wind can cause several different issues, including:
- Bloated stomach
- Bloated abdomen
Everyone passes wind, and it is entirely natural, even if it isn't treated that way. It is caused by bacteria in the gut that is created by the colon. Trapped wind can be caused by eating quickly, as well as foods that contain a lot of fibre and also fizzy drinks. Also, dairy foods, carbohydrates, foods that contain fructose, and fatty foods.
