Antiflatulence Products

The average person passes gas 13 to 21 times per day, according to the National Institutes of Health. While passing gas is normal, it's sometimes embarrassing and often uncomfortable as it can cause stomach bloating and pain. Antiflatulence products help reduce gas build-up and its associated discomfort. Sometimes, too much gas is the start of something more, so check out antidiarrheals.
