A lot of people experience bloating once in a while, but for some people getting bloated is a daily struggle. There are so many reasons why people get bloated such as hormones, the change in the bacteria in the gut, change in diet, gluten intolerance, lactose intolerance, and consuming foods with higher sodium content.

Besides the reasons that require medical attention such as hormone imbalance or other gut problems, most of the bloating is caused by the foods you consume.
