Get rid of your Uncomfortable Stomach

An uncomfortable stomach can have several causes.

Stomach discomfort is when the abdomen feels full and tight, even when you have not just eaten. It most often occurs in the small intestine rather than the stomach, as most people believe. And the most common cause is irregular digestion that produces gas at a higher rate than normal.

causes of intestinal gas that extends the abdomen include:

* Eating too fast
* Air swallowing (a nervous habit)
*Overeating
*Intolerance to dairy products
*Certain food intolerances
*Poor elimination

At the beginning of a health diet, a sudden increase in fiber from vegetables, fruits and beans could cause discomfort.

If you are eating heavy meals late at night, or drinking too much alcohol, it will encourage the build up of acid. The digestive system works more effectively when you are up and about for at least 3 hours after eating before retiring to bed and lying flat.

Digestion is a series of chemical reactions that break down food into components from which we derive energy and nutrients. The remaining material is waste and is eliminated through the intestinal tract.

Some of those wastes are gases that are normally managed easily by the elasticity of the intestinal canal. Sometimes, however, large pockets of sulphur-bearing gases stretch the gut wall past its comfortable elastic limit and we feel uncomfortable by a “blowing up” or expansion in the abdomen.

Sometimes faulty lifestyle is not the culprit. Some people produce more acid than others naturally and, in addition to causing discomfort, this acid can break down the protective lining of the stomach.

Once you or your doctor has determined there is no medical condition causing the excessive gas, you can begin eliminating foods that may be causing the symptoms.

It's no secret that as we age it becomes harder to enjoy a meal without suffering from some type of digestive discomfort. Every 10 years of life the pancreas produces fewer digestive enzymes. In addition, our modern diets are largely void of natural plant enzymes. This overall lack of enzymes causes the body to work harder, putting a strain on our internal organs and digestive system.

A well balanced intestinal enzyme builder is the first step in creating a more comfortable and flatter stomach. This balance should contain a high amount, and a variety, of enzymes as well as other necessary ingredients that address every type of food ingested: protein, fats, starches, dairy, plant, vegetable material and sugar.
