Is it food? Allergies? Inflammation? or all of them...?
The issue is, if your gut biome is unhappy - not much else will be happy either so that should be an absolute priority. Below you will read about a few ingredients we have found to be incredibly effective for digestive optimization.
Don't take just our word for it, read the reviews all over our site and this is simply through absorbing these ingredients through the skin.
The intestines are a long tube running from the stomach to the anus and includes the small intestines, large intestines (colon), and rectum. Your body absorbs most of its nutrients in the intestines.
The small intestine is about 20 feet long and about an inch in diameter. It's responsible for absorbing nutrients from your diet.
The large intestine, or colon, is about as long as you are tall. And it's roughly as big around as your wrist. The colon absorbs water from waste and this creates feces. For every foot of colon the body can store between 5 and 10 pounds of feces. So if you're just over five foot tall you could easily have 25 pounds of fecal matter backed up in your colon.
Typically, the first line of treatment for preventing gas and bloating is changing your diet.
Research has shown that a low fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols (FODMAP) diet can reduce the symptoms of gas and IBS.
A low FODMAP diet avoids fermentable, gas producing food ingredients, such as:
1) Oligosaccharides, which are found in wheat, onions, garlic, legumes and beans
2) Disaccharides, such as lactose in milk, yogurt and ice cream Monosaccharides, including fructose (a type of sugar found in honey), apples and pears Polyols or sugar alcohols found in foods such as apricots, nectarines, plums and cauliflower, as well as many chewing gums and candies.
The most common natural remedies for gas include:
• Peppermint tea
• Chamomile tea
• Fennel NATURAL remedies for Gas
• Turmeric Over-the-counter gas remedies include:
• Activated charcoal
• Lactase enzyme (Lactaid or Dairy Ease)
Solutions: We recommend a variety of ingredients but the one we can guarantee will give you rapid results and probably the one you have the easiest access to - is magnesium.
WHAT IS MAGNESIUM FOR?
Virtually every part of our bodies - including our cells, nerves, muscles, bones and hearts – require a steady supply of the nutrient magnesium to maintain normal functioning.
It is the fourth most abundant in the human body, and also an electrolyte that is present in the body in large amounts. It plays a role in numerous functions, like heart health, muscle contractions and more.
How does Magnesium sulfate actually work in the body? It works in several ways, such as by increasing the amount of water in the intestines, causing vasodilation (widening blood vessels and improving blood flow) and blocking the entry of calcium into synaptic endings, which alters neuromuscular transmission.
It's effective at preventing certain types of seizures and convulsions because it blocks transmission between nerves and muscles.
How will this decrease bloating?
Magnesium sulfate combined with water causes reverse osmosis. This pulls salt and excess fluids out of your body, helping relieve swelling. Using magnesium sulfate capsules or Epsom salts may help discourage water retention and promote elimination, decrease bloating and help to reduce edema tied to inflammation.
We use Magnesium Sulfate (there are several kinds of magnesium). Visit our Magnesium Wrap therapy collection to see all of the bundles we have that currently include the use of Magnesium Sulfate as well as Magnesium in our Dead Sea Salts.
Below you can find a variety of options that contain both magnesium sulfate and magnesium oxide. These are highly effective in treating bloat and constipation.
