4. Charcoal Capsules - Bragg's Originals

The super absorbent property of activated charcoal is used medicinally and industrially to soak up and remove unwanted or harmful substances - as an antidote for poisoning for example. With a lattice like structure that has enormous surface area, activated charcoal can help to absorb the excess gas within the intestines that contributes to abdominal bloating. Bragg's originals Charcoal capsules are particularly useful for fast acting symptomatic relief of bloating, abdominal distention, burping and wind.

5. Nutrigest - Nutri

Where bloating occurs alongside burping and a prolonged sense a fullness after eating, an insufficient supply of the acid and enzymes required for effective digestion is often involved. Multiple factors including ageing, stress and inflammation, can decrease the production of stomach acid and digestive enzymes. Without enough of these, poorly digested food can become a source irritation, fermentation or putrefaction. Topping up your levels with a good digestive enzyme formula like Nutrigest can help to avoid the symptoms of incomplete digestion. Check out Daniel's stomach acid for more information.
