What is intestinal gas
Gases are part of the process of digesting the food we eat. The physical and chemical processes of digestion lead to the generation of gas. The first part of digestion takes place in the stomach, when we swallow - normally or involuntarily - the ambient air, including swallowing saliva. The second part of digestion takes place in the large intestine where the bacterial flora produces chemical reactions that cause gas.
Activated charcoal and gas adsorption
Adsorption is the process by which a porous solid (at the microscopic level) is able to retain gas particles on its surface after coming into contact with it.
The adsorbent has active centres, which allow gas molecules to settle on its surface.
Activated charcoal has a high gas adsorption (retention) power.
