Top #26 Best Ways To Beat Bloat ~ Banish Your Belly..
#6 Stop Chewing Gum & Hard CandyThis my not be a obvious cause of your bloating, but chewing gum and sucking on hard candy causes you to swallow more air than what is normal. Air gets trapped in your gut, increases pressure and makes you bloat. Not only that, gums, mints and hard candy that are sugar-free often contain certain sugar alcohols that in itself can cause your belly to bloat. It's similar to sweeteners used to sweeten our drinks and other food items, as they have chemicals that aren't good for our bodies and although they may be sugar-free, fat-free that doesn't mean they are good for your body. So. be careful what you put in your mouth thinking it's okay and won't cause a back fire effect on you. Chewing gum or sucking on candy verses a bloated tummy? Hmmmmm no contest there for me!
