These are the best supplements to battle bloat:
Oftentimes bloating can come from an imbalance of good and bad bacteria in the gut. Sometimes we can have too much good bacteria and that can start to steal nutrients and decrease diversity in the gut, which causes bloating.
Taking a live strain probiotic (commonly found online or in the stores) can actually make bloating worse because you are adding more good bacteria to an already imbalanced environment. Soil based probiotics are not found naturally in the gut, and they can bring back diversity and create space for different good bacteria to grow.
2. Broad - spectrum digestive
They have all different types of enzymes to help break down starch, protein, fats and fibers. When under high levels of stress or experiencing aging, there is a tendency to be a decrease in the number of enzymes that the body makes.Taking an enzyme with the first couple bites of your meal can help support the body in breaking down food and results in better digestion and less bloating.
3. Oil of Oregano
This is a very potent herb, supplementing with oil of Oregano for a short period of time can help decrease bloating. It is antibacterial and helps kill off harmful or pathogenic bacteria in the gut. It can also help clear out high levels of good bacteria and yeast, which is good in small doses.
4. Ginger/Debloat Ade
Ginger is one of the most anti inflammatory ingredients. It relieves discomfort and protects the stomach lining and also helps with bloating, nausea and pain. Pineapple contains a group of enzymes called bromelain, which helps to break down proteins so we can digest it properly and it is ideal for de - bloating.
5. Organic Pink Fijian Ginger Capsules
This is the perfect natural supplement. It has a protein digestive enzyme called zingibain that can reduce bloating and gas caused by protein rich foods such as dairy.
6. Fennel Seeds
Not only are these a great pantry staple to have on hand but they are also effective in battling bloating. These powerful little seeds can be chewed after a meal to help stimulate proper digestion as well as freshen the breath. That's because they are densely packed with volatile in a good way oils that stimulate the production of bile for better digestion and detoxification.
