Occasional bloating is normal but when it persists for a long time which starts affecting your day-to-day activities, can be a sign of a Gut Health issue.

Bloating is due to a range of factors such as the habit of chewing gum, quick swallowing of food, smoking, etc. But the major cause is inappropriate food habits.

Many a time, we neglect this condition, but we need to closely understand our body’s signs.

In Ayurveda, bloating is considered a symptom of poor digestion which is due to Vata imbalance. When Vata dosha is in an imbalanced state. “Ama” is formed.
