Occasional gas and bloating are often the result of poor digestion. The complex carbohydrates in foods such as beans, cabbage and broccoli are difficult for the body to break down. When not broken down, these foods begin to ferment, producing gas.
Gas, which is air trapped in your digestive tract, is the result of your body digesting food. Sometimes gas and indigestion can cause sharp pains in your upper abdomen or lower intestine. Natural remedies for gas include: Peppermint tea; Chamomile tea; Anise; Caraway; Coriander; Fennel; Turmeric; Over-the-counter gas remedies include: Pepto-Bismol; Activated charcoal; Simethicone; Lactase enzyme (Lactaid or Dairy Ease) Beano; When To Be Concerned. In most situations, occasional gas and abdominal discomfort does not require medical attention.

Although they bring a wealth of healthful benefits, the complex carbohydrates found in beans, cabbage, broccoli and other fiber-rich foods are difficult for the body to digest. The fiber in grains, seeds, legumes, fruits and vegetables contains a variety of resistant starches and related polysaccharides.
These high-fiber foods are known to be gas inducing because the body does not produce the enzymes necessary to break these foods down into easily digestible carbohydrates.
When foods remain undigested, the carbohydrates ferment, which generates occasional uncomfortable symptoms. Proper digestion may reduce discomfort and prevent occasional gas and bloating.*
