Dr Oz: Garlic Causes Gas, Farts, Flatulence & Beano

By on May 26, 2010

Doctor Oz was asked by a lady why garlic gives you gas?  What can you do to stop garlic from making you fart?  The poor woman wants her hummus!  My heart goes out to anyone who can’t eat garlic because it causes gas, because I cannot imagine my life without garlic!  Garlic Causes Gas

Dr Oz said that garlic has a starchy substance in it that causes gas.  What happens is that the starchy substance in the garlic goes into your intestine where bacteria digest it and give off gas which makes an odor and causes you to have flatulence.  Dr Oz said “beano has changed my life” and that is quite a statement!  He said that if you take a few drops of liquid Beano before you eat something that causes you to have gas, it could help significantly.

  1. Will it work for people that have IBS gas. I have severe trapped gas that is so painful.

  2. Bah!!

    Who needs this wishy washy anti garlic fart crap? Ladies….load up and let er rip….I’d ask a woman to marry me on the 1st date if she blasted a garlic bomb.

  3. James,
    For your info, many people can’t digest garlic…they don’t just get the farts, they get lots of pain and bloating followed by several days of diarrhea. So ‘load up and let er rip’ is horrible advice. You should hope you never have this problem.
