In brief: Stomach gas

Products with simethicone (gas x, for exaple) help break large gas bubbles into smaller one.
Frequent gas may be a symptom of acid reflux, for which antacids, acid blockers like zantac, & proton pump inhibitors like Nexium (esomeprazole) & Prevacid are helpful. Gas may also result from lactase deficiency whenever you eat dairy products ; lactaid & dairy ease provide the enzyme to break down milk sugar & stop gas.
