Gas is produced as the stomach and intestines break food into smaller particles for, energy. All people pass gas; however, some food, beverages, dietary supplements, and medications increase gas productions or cause extremely unpleasant odors. Unfortunately, gas that doesn’t go away with treatment could indicate the presence of an underlying illness. See your doctor if severe gas persists.
