Neurogrowth wrote:Has anyone identified ways to reduce intestinal gas and pain from drinking beverages “with bubbles”? I have found myself avoiding carbonated beverages for many years along with mineral water or anything with bubbles because my body doesn’t seem to know how to process the gas without significant belching, flatulence and discomfort that seems to present more at night when I’m trying to sleep after drinking a beverage like this during the day. Kombucha may sometimes have a reduced effect, but this may also be related to controlling how much I consume. The recommendation of consuming 3 to 4 cups a day of silica rich water would be intolerable for my current digestive abilities. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Neurogrowth & A Warm Welcome To Our Community!
Thanks for sharing your concern and I hope the non-carbonated silica rich mineral waters that Laurie provided are helpful to you. I am curious to know if it is only when you consume carbonated beverages that you experience the digestive upset mentioned? The reason I ask is because food sensitivities and conditions such as IBS and SIBO for example, can produce the same symptoms.
