Flatulence is condition that forces one to pass gas. It is as a result of intestinal gas which is commonly known as stomach gas. When this happens, you don’t have control and it is not only embarrassing but painful. While most gas problems such as passing gas, bloating and burping are natural, if they are left unaddressed they can interfere with your day to day activities. In addition to this, when the condition gets severe, it can also trigger other diseases. On average, adults pass gas fifteen to twenty times in a day.
Simply stated, flatulence is the buildup of gas in your colon. The gas is produced by bacteria that is found in the small intestines and which is formed during the digestion of polysaccharides and sugars. There are certain bacteria that have a higher capability of gas production and this causes chronic flatulence.
