    Over the last few months I have been getting excessive gas that get trapped, mind you I haven't changed my eating and I eat healthy to begin with. So, with all things being constant I was advised to get a good probiotic and a good enzyme...well. I have done both and still get gas. Can anyone help shed light on why this would be? I thought the enzymes and probiotics were suppose to help NOT get gas.

    I have found that the charcoal tabs work well for me. They sell them over the counter at any drug store.

    However, avoiding the foods that make you bloated is the best. I discovered that soybean oil or protein turns bloats me so bad, it looks like I am pregnant. No kidding! The problem is that soybean oil is found in just about everything so I really have to be careful and cook at home. Try and avoid soy for a while and see what happens.
