Digestive Care—For Relief of Flatulence

For many of us, the causes of flatulence, relief of flatulence, and prevention of this embarrassing digestive condition remain a mystery. We may notice that certain foods exacerbate digestive gas or that we are particularly gassy in stressful situations. The digestive system is sensitive to outer stress that affects stress hormone levels in the body and to internal stress caused by the improper breakdown of certain foods.

A moderate amount of flatulence is normal, but excessive and highly odorous flatulence is a sign of digestive distress.

Behind the Mystery of Flatulence

Intestinal gas is a natural byproduct of the digestive process. Excessive flatulence is more than a mere byproduct of digestion, however.

The two primary causes of flatulence are swallowed air and an abundance of gas produced by the bacteria that inhabit the intestines. As these bacteria digest certain foods passing through your intestines, they produce odorless gasses such as hydrogen and nitrogen and highly odorous gasses such as methane.

The main food types that jumpstart this gas production are sugars, starches, and polysaccharides such as cellulose found in vegetables and fruits. If you’re not properly digesting these foods, they reach the intestines in a partially digested state where intestinal bacteria ferment them, producing gas.

Common foods that trigger flatulence include:

  • Lactose, a milk sugar. Experts estimate that many people who are lactose intolerant go undiagnosed and don’t realize that their body isn’t digesting dairy completely until the problem becomes acute. An improper breakdown of lactose can cause flatulence soon after consumption.
  • Fructose, especially high fructose corn syrup. This very sweet, very common sugar type is not well digested by many of us and can pass into the intestines in a surprisingly intact state, providing plenty of gas-producing food for intestinal bacteria.
  • Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts. These foods contain a complex sugar that is poorly digested by some people.
  • Starchy foods such as wheat, oats, potatoes, and corn.
  • Beans, which are high in fiber and oligosaccharides, a type of sugar that is not broken down but instead passes through to feed intestinal bacteria.

But wait a minute, I can’t avoid all those foods can I?  And we’re supposed to be eating more fiber for better health, right? How can we make the prevention of flatulence, relief of flatulence, and healthy digestion a priority without giving up most of the healthy foods in our diet?

Eat Well Without Excessive Flatulence

Flatulence, relief of flatulence, and flatulence prevention all depend on how well your body is digesting the foods you eat. Controlling your intestinal gas production does not so much depend on avoiding all gas-producing foods but on proper digestion of these foods so that intestinal bacteria have less poorly digested sugars and starches to turn into gas.

Select plant-based digestive enzymes help your body more thoroughly break down foods to prevent gas from forming. When taken just before meals, these enzymes target potential problem foods directly:

  • Amylase and alpha galactosidase break down starches and cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli and Brussels sprouts.
  • Cellulase helps break down the cellulose in vegetables and fruits that can cause gas.
  • Invertase assists the digestion of sugar, a main source of fermentable food for intestinal bacteria if not properly digested.
  • Phytase helps you thoroughly digest gas-producing grains.
  • Lipase helps you digest fats.
  • Protease aids in the proper digestion of protein.

A flatulence, relief of flatulence enzyme supplement should contain all of these enzymes plus added fennel seed. Natural fennel has been used for centuries as a flatulence remedy. Fennel seed is traditionally eaten in India after a meal to aid digestion and help prevent an abundance of digestive gas from forming.

Additional Tips for Preventing Flatulence

  • Eat fruit alone. Fruit is digested more quickly than other foods, causing a potential gas build-up in the intestines.
  • Pay attention to food combinations. Certain foods are not digested well in combination, despite the fact that they often share the same plate.
  • Get checked for a gluten or dairy intolerance. Both of these conditions can cause excess flatulence.
  • Drink lemon water after meals. Lemon helps promote a more alkaline environment in the body, which discourages fermentation of food in the intestines.
  • Add a daily probiotic supplement to your diet. Probiotics help support levels of beneficial bacteria that crowd out gas-producing bacteria for space and resources. Probiotics also aid in nutrient digestion and absorption.
