How can you reduce flatulence with food?

  1. Everyone farts from time to time, even that pretty girl at work, that nice guy on your team, and even the Queenâ € eehhâ € King! Yes, flatulence is something we all know and is part of life. In itself not bad at all, as long as this is not accompanied by unwanted smells and sounds. That is, especially in company, a bit embarrassing. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

  1. Every day we fart about 15 to 25, big or small. Most of the farts we usually don't even notice. The vast majority of them do not smell or make any annoying noise at all. But did you know that all these winds are responsible for about 1 cubic meter of methane gas, carbon dioxide and oxygen that makes its way out through your anus?

  1. Generally the winds don't smell, but sometimes that can happen. This is then the result of volatile fatty acids, such as, for example, butyric acid, and sulfur compounds, such as, for example, sulphide.

How does flatulence occur?

  1. Flatulence, or farting, is the direct result of excess gas in your intestines and, as a result, losing the same gas through the anus. The flatulence has to do with the way you live, eat and breathe. But to understand this better, let's start with the course of everything you ingest through your mouth until it leaves your body through your stool:

  2. Flatulence, or farting, is the direct result of excess gas in your intestines and, as a result, losing the same gas through the anus. The flatulence has to do with the way you live, eat and breathe. But to understand this better, first let's see the course of everything that you ingest through your mouth until it leaves your body through your stool:

  1. In itself a very well-directed process, but the only problem is that certain gases, acids and air, cannot be absorbed by the intestinal wall. These therefore remain in the intestinal tract. These gases do not necessarily have to enter the body as the same gas through the mouth, but often arise as a result of the many bodily processes that take place during the journey from mouth to butt. It is these gases that cause an overpressure in the intestinal tract, after which it looks for the easiest way out, through your anus.

How can you prevent or cure flatulence?

  1. There are many causes of flatulence, most of which relate to your diet and the way you consume food. We are going to discuss this point by point:

  1. Unnecessary oxygen enters your body as soon as you 'gulp' your food. Gobbling up your food means that you don't chew properly and eat too large chunks of food. This unintentionally enters a lot of air. Air that must also leave your body, either upwards (via burping) or down the road.

  1. Chewing your food in a controlled way is not only a good tip against flatulence, but is much better for your health overall. Your saliva prepares the food in advance, and grinding it with your teeth will save your stomach a lot of extra work.

  1. The name says it all: Carbonated drinks contain carbonic acid. This gas is not absorbed by the body, and will somehow have to leave your body. If the carbon dioxide gets stuck in your stomach, you will automatically belch, but once the carbon dioxide has found its way into the intestinal tract, the inevitable result is that you will start to wind up.

  2. The name says it all: Carbonated drinks contain carbonic acid. This gas is not absorbed by the body, and will have to leave your body in one way or another. If the carbon dioxide gets stuck in your stomach, you will automatically belch, but once the carbon dioxide has found its way into the intestinal tract, the inevitable result is that you will start to wind up.

  1. As soon as you almost literally â € pourâ € ™ a glass of drink, it also enters a lot of air. This therefore applies doubly to carbonated drinks. But this story also applies to a normal glass of water. The air you swallow with your water will have to get out somehow.

  1. Most of the flatulence is odorless, so in principle you won't be bothered by that at all. But as soon as sulfur gases are involved, it only becomes really embarrassing. These smelly gases are residues from the process when the intestinal flora breaks down the proteins that partly consist of sulphurous cysteine ​​and / or methionine. These proteins are found in many nutrients, but where they are most common are the following: fish, dairy, grains, Brussels sprouts, legumes, onions, cabbage, beans and eggs.

  1. Liquid oils and hard fats in particular consist of fatty acids. And it is precisely these fatty acids that are responsible for a smelly fart. This is especially true with butyric, propionic and acetic acids. You can find these fatty acids in cheese and butter, among others. When it comes to the cheeses, it is especially the fragrant and hard cheeses that you should avoid if you want to suffer less from stinkers. These fatty acids can also be created in your body through the fermentation and breakdown of certain vegetables and fruits. Think of beans, cabbage, bananas and peaches.

  1. The bacteria in your intestines, which we also know as intestinal flora, can help you to prevent or prevent flatulence. It is important to keep this culture healthy so that they can break down the food better. The intestinal flora can only work efficiently if it is healthy. The direct result is less production of nasty gases and therefore less flatulence. Certain foods can help you with this, such as turmeric, cumin, cottage cheese, kefir and yogurt.

  1. The carbohydrates in certain types of fruit and vegetables can also smell enormously. In particular, the complex and fiber-rich carbohydrates such as these occur in pasta, rice and potatoes can lead to gas formation, and therefore extra flatulence. This is also the case if you eat a lot of simple carbohydrates in a relatively short time, such as those found in ice cream, wine gums, liquorice, soft drinks and granulated sugar.

  1. This will cause stomach pain because your gut flora cannot handle these amounts. Your intestines become upset and the acidity of your intestines becomes completely out of balance. These are all factors behind even more flatulence.

  1. Although the best way to combat flatulence is of course by adjusting your diet, there are medicines available for those who don't feel like it. You can get these medicines from your doctor or directly from the pharmacy.

Bismuth Subsalicylate

  1. This is a salt that binds the sulfides (the sulfur compounds). In this way the level of the flatulence is reduced. After all, it is these sulfur compounds in particular that cause the smell.

Rifaximin

  1. This is an antibiotic that is widely used against irritable bowel syndrome, but also works well against excessive winding.

Alpha-Galactosidase

  1. This protein is found in many medicines to combat flatulence. You can find it in the medicines Jarro Zymes Plus and Preflatine-OK, among others.

Iberogast

  1. This is a homeopathic remedy in a liquid form.

Rennie Deflatine

  1. The well-known Rennieâ € ™ s fight the gas formation, which can prevent smelly farts.

Norit

  1. Norit is also an effective remedy for excessive gassing.

Wild garlic

  1. Homeopathic wild garlic drops may be the best solution, without significant side effects. A. Vogel has these drops in its assortment.

  1. If all these described advice do not help, it is very wise to make an appointment with the doctor immediately. There may be a deeper cause, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, yeast infection or constipation.

  1. The most important, and most comprehensive advice I can give you is to first look for the solution in your diet, in combination with the way you eat and drink. So don't be shocked, but take the time to chew. You can do this in combination with homeopathic remedies, especially because they have virtually no side effects.
