Much of the gas expelled by some people actually comes about as a result of swallowing it, due to gum chewing, smoking etc. This introduces gases that will not be readily absorb into the body and thus must be released naturally in the form of gas, by being aware of this you can stop it or reduce it significantly.

Next watch your diet. Stay away from large meals of fatty foods, some sugars and carbohydrates. Those foods with large sources of these (such as beans) will cause absorption problems and thus will produce much more gas that will other foods.

Another good remedy is fenugreek seeds, mix these with equal part dill. Every day take about 5 grams and it should control the flatulence.
