What is stomach gurgling?


Peristalsis, or stomach gurgling is the sound of smooth muscles contracting and pushing your food down your small bowel and into your colon. The digestive tract processes food, drink, and air; gurgling is a result of this interaction. It is often a natural occurrence. But, if you’re constantly feeling stomach gurgles, along with other symptoms like pain, diarrhea, constipation, excess gas, or foul-smelling stool, it might mean it’s time to see a doctor.
