Our intestines can’t digest everything we eat. The leftovers pass on to the colon. The processing or fermentation of leftover carbohydrates by the colonic bacteria leads to the formation of intestinal gas. Most people even refrain complaining about flatulence, excessive belching, increased intestinal gas and bloating. Treatment of flatulence (Aadhmaana in Ayurveda) have therapies to promote deepana (by carminatives), paachana (by digestives) and vaataanulomana (by gas expellers).
