People around the world, especially women, are embarrassed by farting, but today we will present you a whole new perspective on things. Farting is an indicator of our well-being and it shows that our digestive system is healthy.
People normally fart about 5 to 10 times on a daily basis. But, there are certain foods including sweet potatoes, beans, oats, and wheat, which makes us fart more than 10 times and cause stronger odor.
8 Reasons Why Farting Won’t Be a Taboo for You Anymore
1. It Feels Good
Farting makes us feel good. If you are in a public place or with your colleges or friends, you can go to the nearest toilet and do it quietly, because holding the gas can make you irritable and snappy.
We’ve all been in that position, and it is very uncomfortable, but when you’re at home you can do it whenever you need. It really makes you feel good.
2. It’s Bad for Your Gut
People with guts problem mustn’t hold the intestinal gas. Holding the intestinal gas can cause hemorrhoids, so according to many approaches, you should let it out naturally.
Many people may not know this, but withholding gas aggravates hemorrhoids, which also counts for trying to control the way you are going to fart. The best approach is to let it out naturally.
3. Eases Abdominal Pain
Holding the intestinal gas can cause stomachache, so don’t hold it, especially in situations when you start to feel pain because it means that you have a lot of gasses.
You can massage your stomach gently, in situations when you desperately need to fart, but you can’t.
4. Farting Reduces Bloating
Gas in your gut can be a reason for bloating. So, if you feel that your pants are tight or if you feel discomfort when you sit, maybe you need to fart.
5. Balances Your Diet
We all have a different gut and we handle food in a different way. But, farts can reveal if your diet is balanced or imbalanced.
If you consume a lot of red meat, your farts will have unpleasant, strong odor. If you consume carbohydrates, you will have bigger amounts of gas with a neutral odor.
6. Indicates Food Allergies
Food allergies lead to gassiness, so if you notice that you fart more after consuming some foods, you should consult your doctor. He will do some tests to find out if you should avoid some foods.
7. Inhaling Farts Is Good for You
Yes, it sounds strange and silly, but it’s true. According to a study by The University of Exeter made a study about it and found out that inhaling farts can protect us against mitochondrial damage, heart disease, stroke, and arthritis.
8. Farts Speak for Our Health
When you pay attention to your farts, you take care of your health. Gassiness is a sign of health problems.
If you feel pain or if your fart odor change and you think that it is not related to the food you are consuming, then you must consult a doctor.
However, there are ways to reduce the gas. Just limit dairy, exercise, eat slowly, and avoid carbonated drinks and artificial sweeteners.
