Flatulence is the passing of gas or wind from the digestive tract. Excessive flatulence may be uncomfortable and could be associated with imbalances of the gastrointestinal tract, e.g. Irritable bowel syndrome, indigestion, or SIBO. There are several causes of flatulence such as swallowing excess air through
chewing, smoking, sucking, or loose-fitting dentures; consumption of carbonated drinks; wind-producing foods such as beans, cabbage, and pulses.
