Should you suffer from excessive flatulence, check out the possible sources, they include: consumption of certain food and beverages (over 90% of the cases), heavy breathing and rapid inhaling of air, some forms of drug abuse, chronic bowel disease, improper diet (see your physician), stress and lack of certain enzymes. It is also quite common with aging people, and women just giving after birth.
