If your bloated stomach is getting between you and your flat stomach goal then you're not alone. Uncomfortable bloating is very common and can affect men and women.
To help relieve symptoms and get on your way to that perfect flat stomach, it could be time to turn to some digestive aids.
Try Biocare Digestaid, £16.85, for 60 capsules. Its broad spectrum enzyme formula is suitable for vegetarians and vegans and will help digest carbs, fats and proteins which can lead to bloating.
You could also try probiotics to beat the bloat.
Probiotics can aid the absorption of nutrients from food but they also help the bowel function regularly and discourage harmful bacteria from becoming dominant in the gut therefore helping to maintain a healthy digestive system and minimize the risk of IBS and bloating.
Probiotic expert Prof Glenn Gibson says, “Probiotics are well known to support the digestive system. They will strengthen the body against contracting bug-related illnesses such as food poisoning and gastro enteritis.”
Try Multibionta multivitamins which are enriched with probiotics to improve digestive health
