When it comes to passing gas most likely you will get embarrassed or ashamed, but if fact you should smile instead because farting, and despite its unbearable odor, is still a sign for a healthy body.
Here’s why farting is good for your health:
- It reduces abdominal pain: holding the gas in can cause abdominal pain so if you let the gas out, you will prevent intestinal distention and keep your gut healthy.
- Helps you identify food allergy: lactose intolerance for example is an allergy that leads to excessive gas so in a way, you can determine allergies only by noticing how your gut interacts with certain foods
- Serves as an indicator for a healthy gut: the characteristics of farts can help you predict certain health issues through different symptoms such as extreme odors.
- It can help you balance your diet: it is through the frequency of gas passing that you can determine what foods to consume and what food your stomach needs, and it may indicate foods that you may be over-consuming.
