Don`t deny it, we all fart. It`s nothing to be ashamed of, it`s even good for you, it keeps your internal in a good shape.
If you stop a fart, it won`t go away, it will work its way to the lungs and get out through your mouth. Disgusting, right?
Farting is very important for our health and well-being. Here are 5 interesting health benefits of farting you should know about:
Bloating is something that happens even if you eat only healthy food, especially beans and lentils.
But our body is created by a pressure release valve, which naturally takes care of this problem.
When food gets in the colon only partially digested, it creates gas, which is released by farting.
To help the process, there is a yoga pose which will help you when you are floated: lie down with your face up and pull the knees towards the chest. In Sanskrit, this pose is called “Pawanmuktasana”, translated literally as the “Wind relieving pose”.
The smell can tell you if something`s wrong with your health:
When we are in good shape and health, our farts don`t smell that bad (or at all).
But when they start smelling awful and putrid, it`s a sigh that something`s going on inside our body and we need to pay closer attention. Some of the possible reasons for smelly fart are indigestion, infection of the digestive tract or lactose intolerance.
Smelling a fart can be good for your health:
The fart contains hydrogen sulfide and inhaling it can reduce cell damage, or prevent arthritis, stroke and heart disease in the long run.
Healthy intestinal bacteria:
Gut microbes are very important for our health, because they control weight gain, regulate brain chemicals and boost the immune system.
The microbes can`t let us know if something`s wrong, but the farts can- they are a communication link with the gut bacteria. Farting means that you are in good shape and health.
Purna Kashyap, a famous gastroenterologist, says that we need to eat food which causes gas in order to feed the gut microbes with the nutrients they need.
Farts help with your diet:
If your gut microbes don`t get enough nutrients, you will rarely (if at all) fart. You need to eat more carbohydrates like:
During menopause, the frequency of farting increases. This means that you need to make some changes in your diet. To keep the gut healthy, consume more probiotics. This will maintain hormonal balance and provide many benefits for menopausal women.
