Can raw veggies cause gas? Yes, some cruciferous vegetables, especially eaten raw, can produce excess gas. So why do raw vegetables cause gas? Sometimes your digestive system can become affected. When this happens, are you often asking yourself, “Do raw vegetables cause bloating?” Well, I am here to make sense of all this for you.

Raw Cruciferous Vegetables Eating Suggestions

Raw food has so many benefits. It’s rich in enzymes, all the vitamins remain intact, and typically it’s easier on the digestive system than cooked food.

Until it’s not… you see there are simply some vegetables that are difficult to digest raw. Particularly vegetables in the cruciferous family – cabbage, kale, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, etc.

Why Do Raw Veggies Cause Bloating & Gas?

The reason these vegetables are difficult to process and often cause gas is they contain high levels of sulfur and fiber.

This is part of the reason cruciferous vegetables are so nourishing. The sulfur fights back against harmful free radicals, and they have a powerful detoxifying effect.

While the enzymes, vitamins, and antioxidants in vegetables are valuable, they’re useless if your body can’t process them.

At the beginning of your digestive health journey, when you’re working on rebuilding your gut flora, and strengthening the intestinal lining, raw vegetables aren’t the best thing.

Too often, your body spends more energy digesting these foods than they receive from them. As you work on strengthening your digestive system, take it easy with raw veggies.

Give Yourself Time to Heal!

Over time, as you build up your microbiome and repair the lining of the intestines it’ll be much easier to process raw vegetables.

These things take time so be patient with yourself and don’t let the process stop you from enjoying these health-promoting vegetables.
