We’re going to talk about how to stop flatulence. The average person farts between 5 and 15 times per day with no odor. If you have a poor diet, you might experience more flatulence each day. What causes flatulence? Check out these six causes and remedies for gas.
6 causes and remedies for gas.
1- Low stomach acidity
Flatulence is hydrogen and methane gas created by microbes in the process of carbohydrate and fiber fermentation. This process is supposed to occur in your large intestine.
When it occurs in your small intestine, this is related to SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth). SIBO can cause many other digestive issues.
Your stomach pH should be between 1 and 3—this is highly acidic. Without high stomach acidity, your digestive process is put under stress, causing many digestive issues.
The best remedies for low stomach acidity:
- Betaine hydrochloride
- Apple cider vinegar
Ginger can also help soothe the stomach.
2- Food intolerance
Another cause of gas is food intolerance. Lactose intolerance is a common problem that happens when your body lacks the enzymes that break down lactose. In turn, this causes excess gas. You can avoid lactose or take enzymes that help break down lactose.
Gluten intolerance is also common—if you’re on Healthy Keto, you don’t have to worry about gluten or grains. Probiotics can help fortify your microbes and potentially increase enzyme production.
3 – Gas-producing foods
Avoid these common gas-producing foods:
- Starches (like potatoes and rice)
- Certain cruciferous vegetables (Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage)
Instead, consume more:
4- Sugar alcohols and fiber
Keto-friendly low-calorie sweeteners, sugar alcohols, and fiber can cause digestive discomfort when consumed in excess. If you begin to experience gas, reduce your intake of these keto treats.
5- Chewing gum
Chewing gum and chewing with your mouth open can cause you to swallow excess air. Avoid chewing with your mouth open.
Soda and other carbonated drinks can increase gas in your system.
