Would it be good to take beano or a digestive enzyme to help with flatulence?

In brief: Worth a try but...

Everyone has some flatulence; this occurs when undigested food is fermented by bacteria & yeast in the intestines.
Enzymes may improve digestion; some need BetaineHCl as well. Probiotics may help, as well as drugs or herbs to treat dysbiosis. Some benefit from a low FODMAPs diet. Read http://chriskresser.com/what-everybody-ought-to-know-but-doesnt-about-heartburn-gerd/ for more details.
