Although farting can bring a lot of embarrassment but actually is a sign of good health. According to health experts, you should never hold your fart as it may cause health issues and can interrupt the digestive functions. We have listed below some of the surprising reasons that indicate why you should never hold a fart.


For colon’s health

As flatulence is a natural process, holding it is never a good idea. Passing gas is the body’s attempt to release by-products of the gastrointestinal system, which can be potentially dangerous for the body.

Pressure on the lower intestinal system

Holding fart for a longer duration may put immense pressure on the lower intestinal system, resulting in pain and discomfort in your abdomen.

You may feel bloated all the time

Doesn’t bloating make you feel uncomfortable? Farting is a way your body is indicating the presence of gas in the body that needs to be released. This is often experienced shortly after eating a meal, particularly a heavy one. If gas is not passed, it can lead to stomach ache and uneasiness.

The gas may get reabsorbed by the body

Forcibly holding your fart may increase the chances of wasteful gases getting reabsorbed by the body rather than getting released. These gases, when reabsorbed, pose the risk of gastrointestinal diseases.

Stinkier farts

Holding in a fart may make the situation worse. The gas inside the stomach starts to rot, which results in a much stinkier fart later.

It may also cause stomach rumble

Your stomach rumbles or makes weird noises when you feel hungry or dehydrated. Holding in a fart also does the same as the gas starts moving up. This may put you in a more embarrassing situation.
