Your body has a natural way of getting rid of excess air in the stomach, by belching or burping. It’s a normal reflex, thought to be caused by stomach acid backing up into your oesophagus, and our bodies naturally respond by swallowing more air to clear the build up.

In some cases, chronic belching can be a symptom of a more serious condition related to the stomach. If you are concerned, consult your doctor and they will be able to advise you on the best treatment.

"Reducing bloating can have a number of benefits that may not be as obvious, for example the mental side effects from not feeling tired and sluggish can help you greet each day with a positive outlook."
