We all know beans can do it. But what if you get gas sans those flatulence culprits?
It could be gas from your stomach that’s migrated down, or other foods you may not be aware of. Did you know some people even swallow air without knowing it?
If you have really stinky gas or know someone who does, how about some charcoal filters for your underpants? Seriously. They make them. I haven’t tried them, but here’s a funny video about the brand called, Subtle Butt.
Gas, flatulence, whatever you call it, you don’t want it! Here are 5 things to remember if you’re having trouble.
- Eliminate carbonated drinks. These introduce gas into your stomach, which can end up in your intestines.
- When stressed, try breathing in slowly through your nose and out through your mouth. Some people swallow air without realizing it, usually when they’re anxious. This can cause burping or flatulence.
- Avoid antacids. Though they’re marketed as anti-gas, they actually create gas when they neutralize stomach acid.
- Consider your food tolerance. For example, dairy products, onions and garlic cause some of us to blow.
I’ll leave it at that…
P.s. The average person passes gas about 12-25 times a day. That seems like a lot if you ask me…
