Poor eating habits is one of the most widespread problems in our times.

We don't have enough time to cook healthy meal (and to eat this meal too), we try to cope with stress drinking alcohol, and often still the hunger eating hamburgers.

As a result, many of us suffer from aching and burning in the upper abdomen, bloating, nausea, gassiness and uncomfortable sense of fullness.

Actually people sometimes notice that these symptoms become worse after stressful situations.

Indigestion may be also caused by numerous health conditions like gastritis, peptic ulcer, pancreatitis, gallstones etc.

The good news is that we can improve digestion and prevent uncomfortable feelings in the belly, adding certain foods to our ratio.
