What's Causing Gut Discomfort?
There are many reasons for gut discomfort, but what if you're getting enough probiotics and eating healthily, yet you're still experiencing belly bloat and discomfort, gas, or occasional constipation or loose stools?
It may surprise you to learn that even those with a healthy gut microbiome can suffer from time to time with digestive discomfort!
There are many reasons why:
· A stressful or demanding lifestyle.
· A genetic predisposition making you susceptible to gut issues.
· Undiagnosed food sensitivities, intolerances or allergies.
· A diet that's excessive in fructose and other sugars, all linked to loose stools, flatulence and
· Inflammation in your stomach from taking over the counter or prescription non-steroidal
anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
· An issue with your gut-brain cross talk.
GI issues affect both men and women, but for various reasons, women suffer more than men.
Why Women Are Up to 6 Times More Likely
to Experience Gastro-intestinal Distress
Women are two to six times more likely to experience GI issues than men. Unresolved stress due to a stressful lifestyle is one reason.
There are also many physical reasons why women may be prone to more tummy troubles than men:
· Women secrete less stomach acid and experience slower gastric emptying that can result in
· Women tend to use more NSAIDs throughout their lifetime which can irritate the stomach
· Women have slower emptying from the large intestine that can cause occasional issues with
regularity, and it tends to worsen with age.
· Women have slower gallbladder emptying that can lead to occasional discomfort.
· Women's enzyme systems in their livers and small intestines differ from men's and can affect
how their bodies break down medication.
Women's bodies also tend to be more sensitive to irritants, such as gas, in their GI tracts which can trigger messages to the brain and in turn, a stressful response back to the gut, further impacting bowel function.
Probiotics can help to boost the immune system and ward off inflammatory responses in the gut. ... However, when inflammation is present but not needed, illnesses such as allergies, flu and chronic infections can occur. Probiotics offer a beneficial defense against the effects caused by this unwarranted inflammation.
