(NewsUSA) – A summer barbecue is one of life’s simple pleasures. Yet, too many hot dogs, hamburgers, baked beans and ice cream cones can give way to another, less-pleasant fact of life: gas.
Indeed, daily flatulence is normal and necessary. In fact, the average person passes gas up to 25 times per day (the human body produces one to three pints daily). However, some people experience more gas than others: Seventy-two percent of adults report they’ve passed gas in public or in front of someone else, according to a recent survey. Often it’s simply the result of eating certain foods, including beans, cabbage, broccoli, apples, whole grains and cheese.
No matter the cause, passing gas in public can be, well, embarrassing. If you’re planning a Labor Day or end-of-summer barbecue, use these tips to avoid being caught downwind:
Manage gas intake. Restricting your diet may not be the best answer to managing your flatulence. After all, there are products on the market designed to counteract gas-producing foods. However, habits like eating too quickly, chewing gum or drinking through a straw can also lead to excess gas in your bowels. So don’t fret about taking your favorite foods off the menu — simply make sure your eating techniques are sound.
Deactivate gas. CharcoCaps Homeopathic AntiGas Formula is a natural and fast way to control flatulence. Beyond gas generated from foods addressed by other leading natural remedies, CharcoCaps helps relieve gas caused by eating dairy products like yogurt, proteins such as fish and foods high in fiber, like whole-wheat pizza. Its exceptionally porous material allows it to adsorb a large amount of gas for its size. Make sure to have some on hand!
Walk it off. Instead of keeping still after a meal, take the lead with a post-dinner stroll or a team volleyball game. Gas that sits in the bowels causes distension and pain, so once you have it, you might as well mobilize it.
