Home Remedies to reduce Flatulence

September 23, 2019

Flatulence or formation of gas in the stomach is a problem that has been complained by many for years. Farting is a natural process of the body and mostly goes unnoticed unless a foul odor is formed. On a normal level, a human body releases up to 5-15 farts per day. However, if you experience higher farting frequency and bad smell, you might be experiencing the problem of formation of gas in stomach or flatulence. Flatulence/intestinal gas released through the rectum – is not only discomforting but at the same time very embarrassing. These offending gases such as carbon dioxide, hydrogen, methane, nitrogen, and sulfur dioxide – are formed in the body when the bacteria of the large intestine brew on carbohydrates that have not been digested completely. These carbs that are difficult to digest are present in foods such as lentils, beans, broccoli, pizzas, burgers, fried items, etc. Carbonated drinks also cause the formation of excessive gas in the stomach.
