What You Need to Know About Flatulence

You already know it can be one of the most embarrassing things to ever happen to you. You might dread going out in public because you’re afraid of when it might erupt. The odour can be offensive. The sound can announce it to all your friends and the people in the surrounding area, and in the worst case scenario, you might want to be very close to a bathroom when it hits.

Flatulence, passing gas, or breaking wind — whatever you want to call it, it blows. Literally!

What Causes Flatulence?

Flatulence is what most of us would call a “fart” or “gas”. It is actually a very normal, natural thing. Though it might be embarrassing, flatulence usually indicates that your body is working just the way it should be. In fact, most people pass gas at least 14 times a day, sometimes more. In most cases it isn’t even noticed. But when it is noticed — oh, boy….. That’s when the not-so-fun dance begins.

So what actually causes flatulence? Flatulence is created naturally by your body as it breaks down the food in your intestines. This natural breakdown happens to everyone and is quite normal. Did you know that after a major surgery, doctors look for your body to produce gas? Once you start producing gas, this means your digestive system is now recovering from the shock of the surgery. In this case, gas or flatulence is actually music to your ears!

The gas is comprised of vapors that your body needs to expel. Flatulence includes nitrogen, hydrogen, carbon dioxide, oxygen and methane. Sometimes it’s completely odorless, but other times, it is extremely smelly. The smelly odor is caused by sulfur-containing compounds that are a natural part of the digestive process.

Are You Suffering From Excessive Flatulence?

Although passing gas 14 times a day or so may be normal, excessive flatulence could be an indication of something else more serious with your digestion. If your gas  is very odorous, that might indicate your body isn’t able to breakdown what your eating or a possible allergen.

If you have excessive flatulence, you can always try over the counter remedies, such as those that contain simethicone. These medications can help break up gas bubbles and make you feel better temporarily and maybe give some relief. Beano is another option that may help breakdown complex carbohydrates found in legumes, nuts, whole grains and certain vegetables, although better options exist……
