Simethicone to Decrease Bloating
The history of simethicone use has been dated for more than 50 years. It is not absorbed by our body and is virtually non-toxic.1 Simethicone is a silicone compound used to treat gas-related symptoms like flatulence and bloating. It could decrease the surface tension of gas bubbles in the intestinal tract. This action results in the dispersion of the gas bubbles and forms large bubbles that can be expelled quickly.2 It is proven that simethicone is an effective agent for relieving the symptoms of functional upper gastrointestinal disease. 3
