"I love it when I feel bloated" - SAID NO ONE EVER.
Bloating is tough. It can impact your mood, energy, and self-esteem. The pressure on your belly makes you feel sluggish, uncomfortable, and lethargic. Before you unbutton your jeans and cruise to the couch, try a few of these simple hacks to help you bring down the bloat and reset.
Bloating can be indicative of an intolerance or sensitivity to a certain food. It’s possible the food you ate was high in FODMAPs - Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides And Polyols. These are a bunch of big words that represent a family of carbs that are fermentable by bacteria in the gut and as a result create intestinal gas. So if your body has a hard time breaking down one of these components, there’s a chance your stomach needs a little help in moving things along.
SR® Digestive Enzymes are FODMAP friendly and specially formulated with 15 enzymes essential for breaking down and absorbing proteins, fats, carbs, sugar, fruit fiber, vegetable fiber & dairy.*
Apple Cider Vinegar may help support diet cleanses, digestion and gut health.* Shooting Apple Cider Vinegar straight can be rough because of the strong smell and taste. Luckily we have a yummy, bite sized solution for you with SR® ACV gummies. Pop in two of these per day to help give your digestive system some relief.*
Kaeo swears by them: “The Sports Research ACV Gummies have seriously been a huge help for me with digestion. I used to get heartburn on a daily basis, but since I’ve been taking these gummies daily, I have not had to battle with that everyday anymore!”
Lemon & Ginger Tea
Ginger has been used for thousands of years for medicinal purposes including bloating. Sipping on some lemon ginger tea or adding it to your smoothie is an easy way to settle your tummy and find calm internally. Remember to take it slow and steady, this is not a beverage you need to chug. We promise, your stomach will calm down at it’s own pace.
Overall, it's important that you drink water, eat healthy, and keep your body moving the best you can. Know that the discomfort won't last forever. Listen to your body and treat it with kindness by making smart decisions for your mental and physical health. You got this!
