You can suffer from trapped wind in different parts of your digestive system, causing an array of symptoms.
If you’d like to remedy yours, it’s time to pop a pill.Symptoms of trapped wind include a bloated stomach or abdomen, alongside others:
- Flatulence (i.e. farting) or burping
- Feeling uncomfortably full after eating
- Rumbling or gurgling noises in your stomach
- Stomach cramps
- Pain when you bend over, lie down or during exercise
- Pain that moves around the body; behind the ribs or up the back or even in to the shoulder.
These signs of trapped wind are recognised by the very solution to your problems – Rennie.
Rennie Deflatine (a simple pill) has “a dual action formulation that provides fast effective relief”.
Even healthy foods can contribute to the feelings of trapped wind: beans, broccoli, cabbage, onions and brown rice.
However, for the benefit of your health, it’s still encouraged to eat vegetables.
It may help to chew more slowly, or to eat in small portions to aid digestion.
You’ll also benefit by eating more slowly with your mouth closed to avoid gulping air down with your food.
If you’re drinking cold fizzy drinks, do drink slowly to help prevent trapped wind.
Try to refrain from stress eating too – nervous tension can affect digestion.
Even wearing tight clothing around the waist can contribute to the problem.
These are preventive measures for the future, but what about if your belly is hurting right now? It’d help to take the Rennie pill.
How does the Rennie pill work?
Each Rennie Deflatine tablet contains Simeticone – an active ingredient which works on bubbles of gas that cause that bloated feeling.
It enables the bubbles of gas to be more easily expelled or absorbed into the bloodstream.
The tablet also contains calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate, which can help to neutralise excess stomach acid.
It may also help to incorporate other remedies to help beat the bloat, such as drinking warm water.
Apparently, adding a drop of peppermint oil to warm water can really help ease any bloating discomfort.
Warm herbal tea is an alternative, with chamomile, ginger, and dandelion considered to be “particularly soothing”.
To get the wind moving in your belly area, it may be worthwhile massaging your lower abdomen.
Additionally, going for a walk utilises the strength of gravity to move the gas out of your body.
