Stomach bloating: Fibre-rich diet to help with the gut bacteria to help ease symptoms

In an intervention study of healthy Danish adults, reported in Nature Communications, an international team of scientists found a low-gluten, but fibre-rich diet helped changed the community of gut bacteria and decreased gastrointestinal discomfort such as bloating and is linked to a modest weight loss.

“We demonstrate that, in comparison with a high-gluten diet, a low-gluten, fibre-rich diet induces changes in the structure and function of the complex intestinal ecosystem of bacteria, reduces hydrogen exhalation, and leads to improvements in self-reported bloating,” said the leading principal investigator of the trial, Professor Oluf Pedersen, Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research at University of Copenhagen.

He continued: “Moreover, we observed a modest weight loss, likely due to increased body combustion triggered by the altered gut bacterial functions.”
