Being lactose intolerant is pretty common in our society. And if you eat anything that is dairy related then it can cause a variety of bloating issues. And if you are lactose intolerant the best thing is to stay away from anything dairy related.  The process of how being lactose intolerant works is lactose pulls through your gut while pulling more water until it reaches your colon. And the result of this is it is fermented by bacteria while releasing gas. This can lead to bloating and stomach pain.

Some of the best ways to relieve bloating is the following:

  • Exercising regularly
  • Eating high fiber foods like fruits and vegetables.
  • Drinking water daily
  • Doctor prescribed medications
