The Most Common Causes of Bloating

The Most Common Causes of Bloating

No one wants to feel like they just returned from an all-you-can-eat-buffet, after every single meal.

Bloating and experiencing that “heavy” feeling in your stomach is frustrating, uncomfortable and sometimes even painful. It can be even more frustrating when you can’t figure out why it’s happening!

Although there are many causes of bloating besides birth control, identifying your triggers is key to saying goodbye to bloating for good.

3 common causes of bloating (and what to do about it):

#1: Stress

You need to be in a parasympathetic state, best known as “rest and digest” to adequately break down and absorb the nutrients from food. Digestion is impacted by how relaxed you are before and during mealtime. Ensuring you’re relaxed before meals, turning off your device, and eating slowly/chewing your food thoroughly is the easiest (and cheapest) way to decrease bloating.

If you’re having trouble relaxing, try these FREE meditation and breathing apps: Insight Timer, Smiling Mind, and The Breathing App.

#2: An Imbalance of Bacteria in the Gut

Your gut microbiome is an internal ecosystem in your body. It’s composed of trillions of bacteria that live mostly in your digestive system.

One way to increase the “good” bacteria is supplementing with prebiotics and probiotics found in Top Up Tonic. Probiotics are essential to keeping your gut healthy and intestinal walls strong and sturdy. Bifidobacterium bifidum and Lactobacillus acidophilus are two important probiotics that have been shown to help improve digestion, abdominal pain, and bloating. The prebiotic inulin (also found in Top Up Tonic), is included as the probiotics preferred fuel source to help sustain their growth.

#3: An Under-Active Thyroid

An under-active thyroid occurs when the thyroid gland is not making enough thyroid hormone to meet your body’s needs. Thyroid hormones play a huge role in virtually every aspect of your body, including digestion and gut health.

A lack of thyroid hormone slows the movement of food through your digestive tract, which can leave you feeling bloated and constipated.

Nourish your thyroid through supplementing with Selenium, Iodine, Tyrosine, and Zinc. Top Up Tonic contains the perfect amount of these nutrients in the most bio-available (easily absorbable) form to support your thyroid.

Give your body the hormonal balance it needs in a single daily dose.
