We all experience this unpleasant abdominal feeling occurring mainly as a result of an inadequate diet. Owing to the bacteria in the colon, gas is generated from carbohydrates and proteins. If lots of gas remains in the intestines, it is stored in the form of bubbles surrounded by mucous, and can hardly be transported in the intestines.
What to do about it?
Eat regularly and slowly. Consume easy to digest dishes, still drinks, avoid coffee and alcohol.
Do sports, exercise and try to eliminate stress or at least let off steam.
However, once we perceive unpleasant flatulence, we can use over-the-counter preparations, but naturally only occasionally! The preparations eliminating bubble formation disperse gas bubbles surrounded by mucous.
If your complaints become chronic, it is worth seeing the doctor even in milder cases.
Béres Flatin soft-gelatine capsule takes effect exclusively physically, helping the evolving gas form tiny bubbles and thus, absorb fast from the intestines.
