Gassy All The Time? Here Is Why.

You don’t know you’re lactose intolerant

Many people think that so long as they don’t vomit or have diarrhea after consuming lactose, then they must handle the ingredient pretty well. But a mild intolerance to lactose can manifest itself in a lot of gas. Pay attention and see if your gas shows up after you eat lactose.

Carbonated beverages

Carbonated beverages contain gas that ends up in your body, and needs to come out one way or another. Just because you stick to zero-coke doesn’t mean you won’t experience some side effects.

You need probiotics

If your body doesn’t have enough good bacteria to break down and help you digest certain foods, you could end up being gassy, even if you don’t eat anything to which you’re sensitive.

You’re a gum addict

When you chew gum, you swallow a lot of extra air which we’ve already learned results in gas.

You drink at meals

Some nutritionists suggest that you should keep liquids at least a half hour away from any meals because having food and beverages at the same time can disrupt the digestive process and result in gas.
