Troublesome gasesSome foods, when digested intensify this bothersome ailment. There are also such that they possess the ability to absorb gases and reduce their quantity in the intestine. Other although not increase the problem, significantly impair the smell.
Warning! The first step to reducing this condition is to avoid foods that cause gas, and they are mainly legumes (beans, soybeans, lentils, peas, beans), and even green beans. Flatulence make all the cabbages and their relatives: cauliflower, brussels sprouts, broccoli. Create gases hard work: onions, leeks, turnips, radishes, beets, asparagus, kohlrabi. Milk and dairy deficiency of lactase - the enzyme that digests milk protein - can significantly exacerbate this problem.

In contrast, responsible for the unpleasant odor of hydrogen sulfide and other sulfur compounds.
Warning! More of them is, the more unpleasant olfactory effects. The amount of hydrogen sulfide depends on two things: the first is the passage of ingested food through the digestive system (the longer the journey, the more gas to emit, and the other is the food: there are certain foods conducive to greater fermentation and production of hydrogen sulphide. This department eg. Dairy, including blue cheese or eggs.
If you experience an increase in gas production, or worse they smell (and this is not related to the change in diet), consult a doctor, because this situation can be problems with the intestines (eg. for disorders of bacterial microflora), disorders of the work of the pancreas or liver .
