Does Beano Prevent the Gas We Pass?

Beano contains a natural enzyme known as alpha-galactosidase that works with your body's digestion. It claims to break down complex sugars into simpler sugars, which your body can easily digest, so it prevents gas before it starts.

Beano advertises that it can prevent flatulence when you eat gas-producing foods like beans, vegetable, and whole grains. This is great because many people avoid certain healthy foods because of the embarrassing after effects.

With every 1/2 serving of food (about the size of 1/2 a baseball) you are recommended to take 1 tablet of Beano or 5 drops of the liquid. You should take it with your first bite so it has enough time to start working.

So what do you think - Does Beano really prevent gas?

Hmm.. I don't know if I would use it. My BF probably does more. The name actually freaks me out, and that's why I'll probably never try it.

I have used beano off and on for over 15 years and it does work when eating some "vicious" foods as beans and cabbage! It is tasteless and beneficial. Go for it.
