Praise the lord, you now have permission to fart because it can be good for you. So, as we found out from the following, it is good for you to let it rip throughout the day. From Men's Health:
There are benefits to letting it rip throughout the day (most of them go undetected, anyway.)
'Farting can tell us a lot about our digestive health. It’s actually very normal to pass gas over a dozen times a day, and lack of gas may indicate less diversity in lower digestive tract bacteria,” says Kelly Jones MS, RD, CSSD, LDN, of Kelly Jones Nutrition. Having a diverse microbiome is important to good health in many ways, including improved mood and fitness performance, better heart health, and a healthier immune system. If you aren’t farting enough, see a doctor to better understand why and how to get things moving better in your digestive system. In the meantime, start making your microbiome more diverse with these strategies."
Farting's benefits according to Men's Health include:
Farting tells you that you are getting good complex carbs;
Farting improve colon health;
Farting may help you eat better and that is good; and
Finally, farting may help you identify food intolerences.
So, fart away, let it rip because it just might be good for you.
