1. Meal time

This meal time is important for people who have body gas problems. If you take late meal, the gas will accumulate in the stomach causing you to experience stomach and abdominal discomfort. The accumulated gas in the stomach is due to the formation of gas in the digestive system which increases the pressure in the abdominal area. In fact, the production of this gas is normal, in fact all individuals produce gas and need to expel air to reduce it on average by 15 to 20 times a day. Holding this gas can cause problem to be trapped in the body immediately resulting in severe pain and bloating. Although most cases of bloating are harmless, it can be a symptom of indigestion such as gastroenteritis (diarrhea) or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) (persistent diarrhea). Symptoms that you may experience when too much gas accumulates in the body are:

  • Bloated stomach
  • Pain or cramping in the abdomen or abdomen that can spread to the shoulders
  • Indigestion
  • Loud noise from the stomach
  • The stomach feels full and uncomfortable
  • Heartburn
  • Feeling pounding
  • Chest ache
  1. Type of diet

Foods that contain the sugars raffinose, fructose, lactose and sorbitol produce a lot of gas in the body. Raffinose is contained in foods such as nuts which contain a lot of complex sugars while cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, asparagus, broccoli and cabbage also contain fructose. Lactose is a natural sugar found in milk and foods containing milk such as cheese and ice cream. Fructose is abundant in onions, pears and wheat. It is also widely used as a sweetener in drinks and fruit juices. For the digestion process, usually it takes 30 minutes – 4 hours depending on the type of food you eat.

  1. Stress

Studies show that the gut produces a variety of hormones, neurotransmitters and immunological factors that can ‘communicate’ with the brain. Any variation in the gut microbiota will affect a person’s mental health such as anxiety or depressive disorders. In fact, there is a connection between the brain and the gut. Known as the brain-intestinal axis, this close two-way relationship results from the enteric nervous system (ENS), a collection of nervous systems or neurons found in the gut. Our gut is a habitat for millions of microorganisms called the gut microbiota. It plays an important role in the health of the digestive, digestive and immune systems, in fact it also affects the brain. Therefore, if a person suffers from stomach problems, indirectly it will affect the brain. It will cause a person to be more likely to face problems such as anxiety, panic attacks, depression.
