Health Tip: Reduce Excess Gas

(HealthDay News) -- Gas is air in the digestive tract, says the U.S. National Institutes of Health. Swallowing less air is a key way help reduce symptoms.

For other ways to reduce excess gas, the NIH suggests:

  • Eat slowly.
  • Avoid gum and hard candies.
  • Quit smoking.
  • Eat smaller, more frequent meals.
  • Ask your doctor about over-the-counter medications.
