We sometimes need to fart when we wake up due to swallowing air through the night and having gas buildup in our stomachs and digestive system as the food or drinks etc digest in our stomachs through the night.

The reason you sometimes fart before you poop is because of gas buildup in your bowels that get released when your muscles in your intestines are stimulated.

The gas is then released and then the poop is released.

Gas in your digestive tract is created when you swallow air.

It is also caused by the breakdown of some foods by good bacteria in your colon.

Your body gets rid of gas by burping or by passing it through your rectum.

Most foods with carbohydrates cause gas.

It is normal to fart a lot as long as it's not really excessive.

Farting a lot can be normal unless the farting gets to be too much or you begin farting a lot more than usual than you normally do which could be a sign of illness or digestive issues.

Regularly farting is normal, even healthy.

Farting a lot isn't necessarily bad, but it could be a sign of a digestive issue or improper diet.

One of the easiest adjustments for gas issues is making sure you're getting a good balance of protein and plants, like fruits, vegetables, and grains, in your daily diet.

The longer food sits in your system, the more gas-producing bacteria build up, causing abdominal discomfort.

You also produce more gas as you age because your metabolism slows down along with the movement of food through your colon.

Yes, even your intestinal tract naturally slows down over time.

Humans pass gas between 13 to 21 times a day.

Farts can be flammable, if they contain hydrogen and methane.

Each day, most people, including women: produce 1 to 3 pints of gas. pass gas 14 to 23 times.

Your gas may smell like rotten eggs because of the sulfur in fiber-rich foods.

Sulfur is a natural compound that smells like spoiled eggs.

Many vegetables are sulfur-based.

If this is causing your flatulence, simply modifying your diet could be enough to reduce it.
