2. Preventing Gas

Asafoetida may be one of the best available remedies for excess gas. As a home remedy for a painful, distended stomach, a person can soak a cloth in warm water mixed with asafoetida and place it on their stomach.

If a person is concerned with gas, it’s better to use asafoetida as part of a compress on the affected area than to ingest large amounts of it. Eating too much asafoetida in one sitting can cause diarrhea or other digestive issues.2Mahendra, Poonam, and Shradha Bisht. ‘Ferula Asafoetida: Traditional Uses and Pharmacological Activity.’ Pharmacognosy Reviews, Medknow Publications & Media Pvt Ltd, July 2012, www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3459456/.
