Dr Oz: Why Does Wine Make You Burp?
Dr Oz’s show called “The Questions You Are Too Embarrassed To Ask” covered questions that many of us have but that we are too embarrassed to talk about, such as why does wine make you gassy? A lady named Nicole told Doctor Oz that she enjoys red wine, but it makes her gassy – both in terms of burping and farting. Dr Oz said that if the odor smells really bad, then that could be a sign of not properly digesting a certain food. But if the smell is generally tolerable, here is why it happens and what you can do to help prevent it.
Dr Oz: Wine Makes You Fart & Burp
Doctor Oz said that when you drink wine or eat food, it goes into your small bowel and then on to your colon. In your colon, bacteria attach to the sugar particles and release gas which builds up in your intestines. This gas is what causes you to fart or burp from drinking the wine.
Dr Oz said that for some people Red Wine or White Wine will cause more gas, so pay attention to if the type of wine makes a difference. Also, the bacterial content of your gut changes over the course of your life, so you could go from having no problems with drinking wine to having wine cause gas. Dr Oz’s solutions included taking Probiotic Supplements, which I recently started taking and cannot say enough good things about them! Or you could try drinking vodka instead of wine.
