There are multiple and different reasons that generate us gas or flatulence after meals. We review them below:

Foods that ferment in our stomach due to lack of gastric acid.
Foods that our body does not tolerate nor assimilated properly.The most common are those that contain gluten or lactose.
Imbalances in the intestinal flora.
flatulent food consumption, such as legumes, sprouts, onions, artichokes, etc.
Consumption of some supplements for constipation rich in fiber, such as those containing flax and psyllium fiber.
In addition, there are other indirect issues that also cause the appearance of gases, such as the following:
Stress and emotional tension
Sedentary lifestyle

The first step to avoid gases must be relearned to eat, without haste, in a quiet and pleasant environment, alone or in good company and not be doing other tasks.
If we are nervous people, are living in situations of stress or anxiety or eat in a situation that we altered unless we can avoid it, we can also take herbal teas that help us to relax along the morning or the afternoon, a few hours before meals. One of the most suitable is lemon balm, which balances our nervous and digestive systems.
If we can not take it in tea also can opt to extract or tablets.

3- Ginger to stimulate digestion:

Ginger is a root that is very beneficial for our health for many reasons, but in this article we highlight their property of stimulating the secretion of the gastric juices that help digest food well.

We can take it in infusion or chewing a raw ginger slice. Also can buy Candied Ginger, which combines the sweet and spicy flavors and will be a great and healthy snack.

5- The enzymes in pineapple and papaya:

Whenever we eat meat or fish as a main course, accompanied with vegetables or salad, we can take dessert or accompanying a little pineapple or fresh papaya, since these fruits contain enzymes that help digest protein. On the other hand we cultural fruits if the main dish have been flour or starch (pasta, pizza, bread, potato), since in that case they would hamper the digestion.
In general only the Apple and PEAR are two fruits that we can take in food, since the rest precisely worsen digestion, because that cause fermentation that produce gases. Much healthier it is take them mid-morning or media later.
In pharmacies or herbalists, we can also find supplements based on digestive enzymes, we can take seasons without abusing them, since it is best to promote our stomach to work properly by itself.
