Why do gas occur in the intestines?
More than 90 percent of the gases in the intestines are a mixture of nitrogen, carbon dioxide, oxygen, hydrogen, hydrogen sulfide and, less often, methane. They are all in our environment. Nitrogen and a good portion of CO2 as well O, come from the air we swallow during meals and when we drink liquids.
When chewing gum or smoking cigarettes, strong gases are also created in the stomach. Kif in the upper parts of the stomach as well as in the intestines.
Bacterial decomposition of amino acids can create nitrogen in the gastrointestinal tract. Hydrogen is also released by fermentation due to bacterial activities. In addition, bacteria in the colon produce methane and nitrogen. This usually happens when the food we eat is not digested enough.
Poor absorption of nutrients in the small intestine after a meal indicates poorly digested food. All this is an excellent basis for the development of bacteria in the intestines. In addition, when there is not enough oxygen in the food, pathogenic microorganisms and toxins attack the intestinal cells and damage them. That is why it is important to eat fresh fruits and vegetables because they contain the compound hydrogen peroxide, which supplies the intestinal flora with oxygen.
