Why Does Your Stomach Growl When You're Hungry?

The wonders of the internet often lead to new learning experiences, and YouTube videos are no exception. In this one we learn why our stomachs growl more when we’re hungry. The bottom line is, it’s perfectly normal and nothing to worry about.

While the rumbling sound in your stomach is generally an indication that your stomach contents are getting low, it’s interesting to note that sometimes the growling noise may be coming from your small intestines, as well. This sound is the result of muscular contractions of your intestinal wall combined with the presence of liquid and gas.

For the most part it’s a normal function, although in extreme cases when you are in severe pain and have lost all bowel sounds, it could be a medical emergency.

On the other hand, if you find your stomach is embarrassingly noisy, and you have no real explanation for it (such as when you’re fasting), it could be because you’re eating too much sugar, particularly fructose and sorbitol (found in fruits and also used as an artificial sweetener in many sugar-free gums and candies).

This is another reason why optimizing your gut flora is actually one of the most important steps you can take for your health. You can optimize your gut bacteria and microbiome by eating plenty of fermented foods, including lassi, fermented grass-fed organic milk such as kefir, natto and fermented vegetables. A probiotic supplement can also help, especially if you’re taking antibiotics (which I don’t recommend except in clear cases where you need them).

Also, stay away from processed foods of all kinds, as well as conventionally raised animal products.
