Abstract:The article focuses on gastric problem. Gas ends up in the intestines two ways, from swallowing excessive air or from the incomplete digestion of food in the colon. Swallowing too much air is a leading culprit of excessive gas production. Although normally expelled through belching, trapped air often makes its way through the digestive tract. Drinking carbonated beverages, chewing gum, smoking, eating or drinking quickly can all contribute to excessive air intake. A study conducted in Spain found that mild exercise speeds the passage of gas through the intestine, leading to less discomfort and abdominal distension.
