What causes bloating?

 Author: All-Bran | 18.05.2015

The cause of bloating really depends on the individual. It’s usually difficult to identify one trigger in particular, but that could be a sign that your overall diet is low in fibre.

What causes bloating?

  • Consuming fatty foods and carbonated beverages

  • Eating too quickly

  • Anxiety and stress

  • Smoking

  • A gastrointestinal infection, blockage or disease

  • Irritable bowel syndrome

"The good news is, for some people All-Bran can help to alleviate the symptoms of bloating. That’s because it contains natural wheat bran fibre that is effective in promoting regularity and good digestive health."

Switching from a relatively low-fibre diet to one that’s rich in high-fibre foods can be uncomfortable at first, and may cause bloating. But don’t give up. After just a few days, the body will start to adjust. For most people, the increase of fluids and insoluble fibre (such as natural wheat bran) helps to ease bloating and move food waste along the digestive tract more easily.

All-Bran cereals are a great source of insoluble fibre and by including them in your daily routine, you’ll really start to feel the difference in your digestive health.
