Health Benefits at a Glance:
Millions suffer from occasional uncomfortable gas and bloating after meals. Bloat Relief targets the aspects of digestion that are responsible for occasional gas and bloating: gastrointestinal motility and excessive gas production in your GI tract. Stay comfortable after you eat with Bloat Relief!
Why it Works:
Artichoke leaf & ginger root extract
Foods move naturally from the 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.
Fennel seed oil + turmeric
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.
The Science Behind the Product:
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 a significant reduction in stomach size consistent with improvements in gastric motility for the Prodigest® group.2
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
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.
