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!
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.
