Have you ever been shamed by someone for passing gas? Just tell them you’re being healthy! Farting isn’t the most fashionable way to improve our health, but it is an indication of a healthy and well-functioning digestive system and balanced level of gut bacteria.
Mew GAG has learned that fart is composed of:
- 9% nitrogen
- 21% hydrogen
- 9% carbon dioxide
- 7% methane
- 4% oxygen
- 1% hydrogen sulfide (this is what makes it smell)
Health Benefits Of Farting:
Bloating is triggered by a build-up of gas in your gut which farting releases. If your pants are feeling slightly fitted, consider cracking a rat.
Farting Helps Balance Your Diet
Passing gas can help you to determine whether or not your diet is balanced since your body will respond to different foods in a diverse manner. So, if you’re consuming a lot of red meat, your farts will stink more. Meanwhile, if you’re eating a lot of carbs, you’ll fart more often but they’ll have a more neutral odor.
Lessens Abdominal Pain
Holding your fart can cause abdominal pain, which is also known as intestinal distension. So, letting your gas go will help you get rid of this pain. If you can let your farts fly, you can lightly massage your tummy to help the gas move through your digestive system.
Holding in your fart or trying to control the way it is released can injure your colon and inflame your hemorrhoids. With this, those who have problems with their colon are told not to keep their farts in. It’s best to just pass gas naturally when you have to.
Smelling Your Fart is Healthy
Even though no one will concede it, everyone likes the smell of their own farts. Maybe this is because we instinctually know that it’s good for us. The hydrogen sulfide produced in our intestines throughout digestion may avoid mitochondrial damage to our cells, which prevents strokes, heart disease, and arthritis.
Determine Food Allergies
Gassiness can determine whether or not we have certain food allergies like lactose intolerance and Coeliac Disease. This is because you will fart a lot after consuming them.
If this happens and you suspect you might have an allergy, you should see your doctor.
Admit it, farting feels fantastic. Trying to hold it in can make us irritable.
If you’re still embarrassed of how much gas you pass, you can try the following:
- Make sure you don’t have any illnesses that need medical attention
- Eat unhurriedly
- Avoid carbonated drinks and artificial sweeteners
- Exercise more
