Gas and bloating can put a damper on even the best after-dinner conversation. The key to relief is to encourage your body to process your food more efficiently and lessen the production of gas, so you can enjoy meals without digestive discomfort and that “too-full” feeling. Together, these plant-based ingredients do just that.
Artichoke leaf & ginger root extract
Foods move naturally from mouth-stomach down into your lower digestive tract. This is called “GI or gut motility.” The first step in relieving bloating is supporting healthy gut motility.
Prodigest® is a patented blend of artichoke leaf extract and ginger root extract. Ginger increases gastric emptying (when food “moves along” its digestive journey) by encouraging the migrating motor complex: the specific GI muscle contractions that make your food move through your digestive system. Artichoke extract promotes healthy bile flow from the liver—another way your body keeps things moving.
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, subjects taking Prodigest® reported a marked improvement in stomach comfort and bloating after just 2 weeks.1 Another study actually used ultrasound to measure stomach size before and after eating—and found that there was significant reduction in stomach size consistent with improvements in gastric motility for the Prodigest® group.2
Fennel seed oil + turmeric
Fennel has been traditionally used to relieve occasional digestive gas and bloating. Several clinical studies back up fennel’s reputation: fennel seeds, fennel tea and fennel seed oil (combined with turmeric) produced improvements in digestive comfort and bloating.3-6
Fennel encourages regular, healthy muscle contractions in your digestive system. It also inhibits the activity of the digestive bacteria that produce gas during digestion—so naturally we’ve included it here.6-8 A large placebo-controlled clinical trial showed significant improvement in bloating and other digestive discomforts for people taking a combination of fennel seed oil and turmeric.
Combine with digestive enzymes
Bloat Relief can be taken alone or with any of our digest enzyme formulas. People in the clinical trial experienced significant improvements in digestive discomforts (including bloating) in as little as two weeks. Try Bloat Relief—and stay comfortable after you eat!
