No. Swallowing air is not a good thing. It has zero benefits. Aerophagia is the term commonly heard when someone refers to swallowing too much air. If you swallow too much air it can cause (painful) intestinal cramps, abdominal pains, and you'll belch excessively. If only we could live in the Willy Wonka world.
