Causes Stomach Ache After Eating Noodles?
Hello, my name is Angelina, I’m 21 years old. My question is why when I eat noodles, my stomach hurts.
Good evening, thanks for the question
Instant noodles are a food that is easily obtained at affordable prices. However, please note that the consumption of instant noodles too often is not recommended because it does not provide a good impact on health. That is because instant noodles contain only a few nutrients and are high in sodium or salt and MSG.
Instant noodles contain only a small amount of calories, protein and fiber. This low fiber content can cause gastrointestinal disturbances so that the stomach easily bloats and causes abdominal pain because the passage of intestinal contents is not smooth.
Even so instant noodles contain good micronutrients, such as iron, manganese, folic acid, and vitamin B.
Excessive consumption of instant noodles is associated with an increased risk of developing metabolic syndrome. So it's not recommended to limit consumption of instant noodles, choose other types of healthy foods that are more varied, or add vegetables and other protein sources if you want to consume instant noodles.
Associated with complaints of a hot stomach after eating spicy food, it is because the content in chili can cause inflammation of the intestinal mucosa. Inflammation can cause complaints stomach upset, feeling hot, diarrhea, impaired absorption of food, and so forth. Similar to the consumption of instant noodles, consumption of spicy foods should also be limited and not excessive because the benefits will actually be replaced with negative side effects on the body.
That's all, hope you can help
