Farting in the public or when someone's nearby is really not good and here are few way to safeguard yourself

Do you calm your hunger pangs by sipping soft drinks? Does your daily diet comprise a spicy meal? Is there only a one-hour gap between your dinner and bed time? If yes, you need to know that these things take a toll on your digestive system, leading to flatulence. As farting cannot be controlled, it may leave you embarrassed at times. While you shouldn't depend on pills to deal with this condition all the time, this one kitchen ingredient is going to put an end to your indigestion problem – flatulence.
Ginger – what makes it effective?
The carminative (gas expulsion) property of ginger helps you deal with flatulence. It contains a volatile oil that breaks and expels the intestinal gas that is responsible for excess gas build-up in the stomach causing flatulence. Ginger also helps in digestion of food and slows down the production of gas.
How to use it?
If you are hit with a serious bout of bloating or gas, drink one teaspoon of freshly prepared ginger juice. This will soothe your digestive system and relieve you from feeling bloated. Adding few pieces of ginger while preparing your food also reduces the formation of gas. Here’s how you can make ginger juice –
  • Take a small piece of fresh ginger. Wash and peel it off.
  • Crush it to extract its juice.
  • Empty it into a bowl and allow it to settle (such that the juice rises to the top whereas the sediments remain at the bottom)
  • Decant it in a teaspoon and drink the liquid.
If you are not in the comfort of your home, you can keep a piece of ginger handy. Just chew it whenever you feel bloated.
Note: Drink ginger juice only once a day as excess consumption (more than two teaspoons a day) may irritate your stomach lining.
