Be sure to chew your food thoroughly and eat slowly in order to keep your digestive system functioning healthily. Eating on the run and when under stress can lead to an imbalance of the various digestive juices and enzymes required for proper food breakdown and absorption and may contribute to gas.
Regular exercise stimulates digestion and promotes the re-absorption and expulsion of gas.
Drink fewer carbonated drinks such as soft drinks, soda water and beer. Avoid chewing gum and smoking as they promote the swallowing of air.
If you suspect you are allergic to milk, replacing cow's milk with soy milk may help. Supplementing your diet with lactase and/or probiotics may also reduce the flatulence.
Take the time to chew your meals properly in order to give your stomach time to prepare for the food's arrival by producing digestive juices.
Increase your fibre intake over a period of several weeks, and avoid legumes, fermented foods and foods rich in sulphur (eggs, garlic, onions).
Other food sensitivities may also cause flatulence - possible dietary culprits are best discussed with your health care professional.
