Gas

The intestines cannot digest everything one eats! The leftover foods are passed on to colon where it gets processed by colon bacteria. This activity produces intestinal gas. Usually, the gas is odorless and is an indicator of normal gastric activity; however, smelly and excess gas indicates problem with digestion.

Few causes for excess gas production are :

  • Overeating
  • Stress
  • Consumption of excess dairy products
  • Fried foods
  • Foods containing caffeine (tea/coffee)

The common symptoms of excess gas are abdominal pain, belching, flatulence and abdominal bloating.

Besides medications, lifestyle changes can help one limit the symptoms such as :

  • Drink 2-3 liters of water daily
  • Take multiple smaller meals instead of eating few bigger meals
  • Wear comfortable clothes
  • Drink lemon juice with lukewarm water on empty stomach
  • Exercise regularly

Ayurveda serves as the best solution to cure this problem. Udar Arogya, a proprietary formula blended with rare natural herbs helps in the proper absorption of food and prevents excess gas formation.
