Abdominal gas is a natural part of digestion. Swallowing air while eating and drinking fizzy beverages can result in gas in your stomach which can bubble up in the way of burping. In the large intestine, gas is created by bacteria digesting starches and sugars that were not digested in the small intestines; the process results in fermentation. This gas is released through flatulence, which, while very normal, has the potential to be embarrassing depending on your settings. However, in most circumstances this can be managed relatively comfortably.
High-fibre foods are common causes of gas. Foods like beans and legumes, as well as whole grains and fruits are typical contributors. Artificial sweeteners have also shown to cause gas in the colon.
In some cases, the build-up of gas can become excessive – which can be both physically and socially uncomfortable. People suffering from excessive gas will often report a stomach ache or the feeling of an air bubble in their abdomen. Whether you’re sitting, standing, or moving around, this can present a multitude of difficulties and significantly impact your usual performance. The distraction of abdominal ache can make it difficult to focus on work or around-the-house tasks; and will present significant challenges for any physical exertion.
