What to do when cabbage makes your stomach deflate: medical and folk methods

Cabbage is quite a healthy vegetable, rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber. However, eating cabbage can lead to abdominal bloating, especially in people with sensitive digestive systems.

The reason for this is the coarse fiber contained in cabbage. Its digestion requires a lot of protein molecules and increased work of the digestive tract.

Poorly functioning digestive system may not be able to cope with such a load, leading to excessive gas and constipation, writes Health. And the presence of sulfur in cabbage aggravates the unpleasant odor of gases.
