WHAT IS FLATULENCE?
Medical experts define flatulence as gas, either generated in the stomach or in the intestines, or inhaled from the air that is expelled through the anus.
The volume and frequency of flatulence can vary widely between individuals.
According to the NHS, the average person farts somewhere between 5-15 times a day.
To minimize the wind, they recommend eating and drinking slowly, training to improve digestion and following a balanced diet.
Excessively irritating flatulence can result from eating difficult to eat foods and can sometimes be a sign of a health condition.
Shipping from Paris, PilulePet – French for & # 39; Fart Pill & # 39; – claims to sell capsules that smell your flatulence from roses & # 39; can make.
The tablets may reduce bloating, extinguish the smell and add & # 39; something & # 39 ;.
Made from natural ingredients such as vegetable carbon, fennel and blueberries, the pills are classified as dietary supplements and do not contain any medicinal or drug components.
The man behind the bizarre, allegedly flavoring product is the avid homeopath Christian Poincheval, 69, who sells his wares under the pseudonym & # 39; Lutin Malin & # 39 ;, what & # 39; Cunning Goblin & # 39; means in English.
& # 39; If you are tired of rolling down the car windows during long car journeys, then this is for you! & # 39; declares the PilulePet product page.
& # 39; A daily solution for smelly feces and farts & he adds.
Mr. Poincheval wrote on his website that the idea for the tablets came about during a meal.
& # 39; We were at a table with friends after an extensive meal, when we were almost smothered by our smelly farts, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; The gas wasn't great for our table companions. You can disguise the sound of a fart, but not the smell. So something had to be done about it. & # 39;

PilulePet released its first commercial pills in 2007 – which should generate the scent of roses – and has since added several flavorings to their selection, including chocolate, ginger, violets and lily of the valley.
& # 39; Our fragrant varieties also add a touch of humor to any occasion & # 39 ;, says PilulePet.
Users may have to wait before they want the wind to fall in company, because the pills are said to last a week before they have a noticeable impact.
In addition, the flatulence company has also released a special powder version of the supplement for dogs.
The fixed point to their returning customers as proof that their product offers satisfaction – but experts remain skeptical.

& # 39; I have no doubt that the content of these tablets can produce a different gas profile & # 39 ;, said Anton Emmanuel, a gastroenterologist at University College Hospital in London, The edge in 2015.
& # 39; The scientific question that remains is whether you can produce enough of that gas to make it smell differently & # 39 ;, he added and noted that the unique complexity of gut bacteria creates the idea of scented farting scientifically questionable to make.
& # 39; It may help in some people, but it will be a very modest effect. & # 39;
& # 39; The majority of people will not feel any difference at all. & # 39;
However, experts say that something smells about the idea and that the pills are probably only beneficial to a small proportion of users
