Gas Indigestion

Gas indigestion, also known as flatulence or bloating, is a common digestive problem characterized by the accumulation of gas in the digestive system, leading to discomfort and sometimes pain. It occurs when gas, primarily composed of oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and small amounts of other gases, builds up in the stomach or intestines.

The foods we eat can play a significant role in causing gas indigestion. Certain foods, such as beans, lentils, broccoli, cabbage, onions, and carbonated beverages, are notorious for producing gas when they are broken down in the digestive tract. Eating too quickly or swallowing air while eating can also lead to gas.
