rectum, you feel awkward. Breaking wind may not be

life-threatening, but it can be

uncomfortable & embarrassing. Especially if

it happens too frequently in front of

your professional colleagues or strangers.

How does this gas gets produced in your body?

  • Eating certain foods like cauliflower, onion, chole,

rajma, cabbage, etc. may be difficult for you to

digest. But it is not necessary that you can have

problem with all these foods, only one out of it can

create problem. Or, you can have some other

food that may be giving you this trouble.

  • These foods are incompletely digested in your

stomach & small intestine

  • When they enter your large intestine, they are

broken down by the good bacteria that live there.

  • In this process, certain gases like CO2, hydrogen & methane are

by-products of these bacterial action.

you are having more of the harmful bad bacterial &

less of good bacterial in your intestine.

difficult to digest in your stomach.

eat too quickly, you tend to swallow more air. So,

make habit of eating slowly. And make sure

you don’t watch tv while eating.

rajma chole or onion are commonly made at night in dinner, but

it is wrong practice. As it is difficult to digest it should be eaten

during day  time, you are more active during day time then night.

throw the water in which it is soaked.
