Bloating- GAS

There are two places where intestinal gas can collect: in the large intestine and in the small intestine.

bloat gas

Some gas is always produced during the digestive process, although if your body is producing excessive gas, this is sign that large quantities of food are going through your gut undigested.

What happens to this gas?

It is absorbed into the bloodstream and eventually exhaled.
It is released. This is known as flatulence or just “gas.”
It is recycled by other microbes in the gut.
It accumulates and creates pressure against the intestinal wall.

Treatment
– Include fermented foods in the diet like coconut kefir, miso, tempeh, sauerkraut and kim chi.
