Bloating and abdominal distention are common in irritable bowel syndrome and can cause significant pain and distress. If you feel bloated soon after eating, especially below the rib cage, it’s likely an issue with low stomach acid.

Bloating and gut pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  • Eating too much or too quickly: When you eat too much or too quickly, your stomach has to work harder to digest the food. This can lead to bloating and gas.
  • Eating certain foods: Some foods, such as beans, cabbage, and broccoli, can cause gas and bloating. This is because they contain complex carbohydrates that are difficult for your body to digest.
  • Swallowing air: When you talk, eat, or drink quickly, you may swallow air. This air can get trapped in your stomach and intestines, causing bloating.
  • Constipation: Constipation can cause bloating because the waste products are not being eliminated from your body regularly.
  • Food intolerances and allergies: If you have a food intolerance or allergy, eating that food can trigger inflammation in your digestive tract, leading to bloating and pain.
  • Medical conditions: Some medical conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and celiac disease, can cause bloating and gut pain.

The Microbial Ecology

As our primary environmental interface, the gut houses more nerves than the rest of our nervous system put together and makes more immunological decisions in one day than the rest of the immune system makes in a lifetime.

The human gastrointestinal system plays a key role in optimal functioning capacity of the entire body via its microbiota which are engaged in myriad metabolic, nutritional and immune processes.

The gut houses trillions of microbes which are responsible for maintaining gut ecology, diversity and also the manufacture of neurotransmitters for the nervous system. The evolution of the gut has now been influenced by the valuable immune modulators in the new generation prebiotics.
