In brief: Yes.

Gastritis can cause improper digestion with gas, bloating, and cramps.
This indicates a problem with stomach acid, small intestine enzymes, gut bacteria or combination thereof. Carbohydrates may stay too long in stomach and/or proteins/fats may pass through too quickly resulting in fermentation or putrefaction. Use enzymes, betaine and acidophilus from professional sources for best results.
