- n. A constituent of human fæces formed in the small intestines as a product of the putrefaction of albuminous matter. It is also found in reduced indigo. Chemically it is methyl indol, C9H9N.
from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A crystalline volatile nitrogenous principle, C8H5(CH3)NH, having an intense fecal odor, produced in the putrefactive changes which take place in the intestines.
These bad flora are constantly taking in nutrients and creating wastes in the form of indol, skatol, and methane, to name a few.5 Methane is an internally produced toxin that results in gas and bloating.

The characteristic odor of intestinal flatus, like that of the feces, is due mainly to skatol, a crystalline compound produced when bacteria break down the amino acid tryptophan, which is found in proteins.
The ever-present bacteria in the stomach are thus permitted to attack the protein and putrefaction commences, rendering nutrients in the protein food largely useless to you and producing toxic wastes and foul gases, including such poisons as indol, skatol, phenol, hydrogen sulphide, phenylpropionic acid, and others.
Or are such substances as putrescein, cadaverin, skatol or indol -- which are derived through chemical change in the putrescent mass -- contributors to the spread of the poisonous taint throughout the system?
We have recorded 66 clear-cut experiments on dogs, which show that after fear and rage, after anaphylaxis, after injections of indol and skatol, of leucin and creatin, of the toxins of diphtheria and colon bacilli, of streptococci and staphylococci, of foreign proteins, and of strychnin, the Cannon test for adrenalin was positive.
Cannon test for adrenalin, demonstrating the increased output of adrenalin after injection of skatol.

Cells from cerebellum showing the late results of injection of skatol.
These bacteria degrades the proteins present in the food resulting in the production of some offensive gases like hydrogen sulphide, skatol.
