Gas problem is very common among people and when you enjoy a portion of spicy food, you are prone to face the problem. The gas that gets trapped in the digestive tract can become troublesome for you and may cause indigestion, loss of appetite, sleeplessness, headache, flatulence, uneasiness, and vomiting.
There is no denial to this that a heavy diet causes the gas problem but there are certain other things responsible for a gas problem like swallowing air while eating, eating rapidly, stress, anxiety, lack of sleep, inactivity, etc.
The winter season is considered a harsh time on the stomach for common people in general and senior citizens in particular because of their low immunity. Indigestion, gas, acidity, bloating, constipation, and stomach ulcers are directly related to the abnormal functioning of the stomach.
The accumulation of excess gas in the gastrointestinal tract is known as flatulence. People are prone to experience gas-related problems at any stage of life but the majority of them prefer scientific medication to deal with the condition.
However, there are certainly other ways to tackle the problem like Ayurveda which is considered the world`s oldest form of medicine and the most effective approach to bring balance in mind, body, and soul.
What causes gas and acidity?
Gas formation usually takes place during the digestion process and it is said that a person passes gas between 10-18 times a day either through the mouth or through the anus.
People usually swallow a small amount of air while eating food and that gets trapped in the gastrointestinal tract. The undigested food then passes through the digestive tract wherein the bacteria present in the large intestine breaks down the food further and produces strong-smelling gas.
The accumulation of excess gas can cause bloating, nausea, acidity, acid reflux, etc.
In Ayurveda, there are certain products extracted from some specific natural herbs and which are considered effective to manage gas and acidity conditions naturally. The best thing about herbal products is that they are natural, effective, safe, and free from side effects.
