Excessive gas can be triggered by habits, food, and some health conditions. For more details, here are the causes of frequent farts.
1. Swallowing air
You may not notice it, but some habits may cause you to swallow more air. Even if you expel a lot of that extra air back, some of it can stay in your stomach. Eventually, it needs to be released from your body as gas or farts.
Some common habits that can cause you to swallow air frequently include:
- Chewing gum
- Sucking hard candy
- Drink carbonated drinks
- Eating or drinking too fast
- Wearing loose dentures
Anxiety can also cause you to swallow more air, because when your body goes into fight-or-flight mode, you breathe faster.

2. Foods that contain gas
Most people know what foods will make their stomach ache and cause them to feel bloated or pass gas.
For example, cruciferous vegetables, such as cauliflower and broccoli, are known to cause gas. Foods that contain carbohydrates such as bread and pasta can also cause frequent farts.
How to Overcome Frequent Farts
There are several things you can do to help reduce flatulence or farting. The ways to deal with frequent farts are as follows:
- Quit smoking
- Gradually introduce more insoluble fiber into your diet
- Chew your food carefully, because the digestion of carbohydrates begins in the mouth
- Drink lots of water every day and warm water in the morning
- Don’t use a straw when drinking
- Avoid carbonated drinks
- Avoid lying down immediately after eating
- Exercise every day, if it is safe for you to do so
- Stop chewing gum
- Slowly chew and enjoy each food
In addition to the methods above, you can also try putting a heating pad or hot water bottle on your stomach when you feel bloated or your stomach is full of gas.
That hot sensation will help relax the muscles in the colon, causing them to release trapped gas.
