Alcohol is a very irritating substance to the digestive system, and it can also cause dehydration caused by diarrhea, which is a common symptom of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and a study by the National Institutes of Health found that consumption of soft drinks and alcohol were common factors in symptoms associated with diarrhea common in Irritable Bowel Syndrome patients.
Researcher Heather Van Furus, author of “Eating with Irritable Bowel Syndrome”, says that soft drinks preferred in your diet can play a major role in the emergence of the irritable bowel problem. According to Foros, soft drinks and mineral water can exacerbate bloating and cause cramps.
Onions, garlic and broccoli
Certain vegetables such as onions, garlic, and cauliflower can cause painful gases and bloating, and onions contain, in particular, a type of carbohydrate called fructans, which you should avoid. A study published in the journal Gastroenterology found that three out of four people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome felt comfortable when following a low-carb diet.
Beans are a protein-rich material, but they can also increase painful gases, bloating and cramps, and avoiding them can help relieve irritable bowel symptoms.
