Gastric Discomfort Information & Research

What causes occasional GI discomfort?

Many people experience occasional GI discomfort that goes away on its own. Overeating or eating foods that don’t agree with your GI system can cause temporary discomfort, as can stress.

How long does occasional GI discomfort typically last?

GI discomfort is often related to certain types of foods or meal composition. It generally takes one to 1.5 days for food to pass through the entire human GI tract, so any discomfort related to a specific food should resolve soon after the substance has been eliminated from the digestive system.

How can you support gastric comfort?

First, the amount you eat at any one time may be more important than the type of food you eat. Try to eat small portions, and eat slowly, chewing your food thoroughly. Avoid excessively fatty foods. Acidic foods, such as tomato sauce and citrus fruits, and spicy foods may cause occasional digestive discomfort. Avoiding processed, pre-packaged foods is a good idea for digestive health and overall health. Alcohol should be avoided or limited to small amounts.
