Bloating isn’t just annoying. It can be uncomfortable when your stomach feels full of gas! It’s a common problem, acknowledged in this Health Central article. Dietitian Nutritionist and author Felicia Stoler, DCN, explained which foods can sometimes cause bloating, and why you may want to stop using straws. This interview also gave her the opportunity to talk about one of Regular Girl’s unique ingredients – Sunfiber – and how it can help you get back into your skinny pants. Gluten-free Sunfiber supports a healthy digestive balance and helps to relieve bloating. And better yet, Regular Girl’s symbiotic formula combines carefully selected healthy probiotics with the prebiotic Sunfiber, forming a union that maintains regularity and promotes wonderfully balanced health.
Some people suffer from bloating after overeating. Practice portion control, especially when surrounded by tempting party foods. When you eat large quantities, your stomach becomes distended. This also puts pressure on your lower esophageal sphincter which may cause burping. Fatty meals may also cause bloating because they take longer to digest. To avoid this uncomfortable feeling, include carbohydrates in every meal.
Ingesting air while you eat or drink may also cause discomfort. Be mindful about chewing and swallowing. Always chew with your mouth closed. For the same reason, cut back on carbonated beverages, chewing gum and hard candy. Consuming sugar alcohols such as sorbitol, maltitol and xylitol can also cause bloating. Instead of eating products with these non-nutritive sweeteners, choose foods which are closer to the way they are found in nature.
Sunfiber helps maintain the friendly bacteria in your gut. This avoids that gassy, bloated feeling other fiber supplements sometimes cause. It’s also is a truly regulating fiber. Used daily, it may help manage occasional constipation – another common cause of bloating – as well as occasional diarrhea. Sunfiber moves the poop through the chute at just the right speed. It’s a daily workout for your intestines.
Regular Girl is one of the easiest ways to add Sunfiber plus healthy probiotics to your daily routine. Just add one stick pack to most any food or beverage. It dissolves clearly, easily and completely, without changing the taste, aroma or texture.
