Why Stomach Gas Happen?
Excessive winding is by and large caused due to bacteria in the lower bowel. Portions of foods that can't be broken down and digested by the intestines pass straight through to the bowel, where they are fermented by the bacteria to produce gas that comes out as burping and flatulence. Stomach gas may also be caused by foods that the small intestine cannot handle. Let’s look a little more closely at it.
Diet that causes Excessive wind
Some people have no trouble digesting milk products while other people suffer stomach gas problem from it. This is because everyone's body reacts differently to different foods. To figure out what triggers you to bloating and excessive wind, pay attention to the foods you eat and symptoms causing gas.
So once you've figured out which foods cause you to suffer from excessive wind, it's time to limit them in your diet.
Why does gas smell bad?
Stomach gas is composed of nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, hydrogen, and methane. These gases are generally odorless, but can become foul smelling when other gases are added. Now let’s break down the cause of smelly wind for you:
- When the gases remain in the digestive system for an extended period.
- Taking foods with high presence of sulfur such as eggs, cauliflower and the entire cabbage family, onions, meat, garlic and cheese.
- Lactose is milk sugar. When we don’t have enough of the enzyme lactase, which is necessary to break down lactose, milk (and milk products) remains in our digestive tract for bacteria to feed on, leading to odorous farts.
- Tight clothing, constricting belts and hold-in undergarment increase the pressure on the abdomen and make it more difficult for wind to pass along normally, resulting in trapped wind and belching.
