The gas comes from poorly digested food, fermenting in the bowel (making gas).
The reasons can be many. Rapid transit is the main culprit in UC, as irritated bowels move more quickly and food doesn't get digested fully.
Digestive enzymes (supplementing digestion chemicals), and swedish bitters (stimulate secretions), seek to improve the digestion of foods by preparing them properly in the stomach. However, the food still needs to navigate the intestines. Trying to balance the enzymes correctly is very complicated.
Trapped gas is painful as it distends the bowels, and causes the bowels to push. I hope you get some relief (I got some with these methods) but ultimately the UC inflammation needs to be controlled.
