Bloating is uncomfortable. There’s no two ways about.
You don’t feel comfortable in your normal clothes (or your own skin for that matter). We’ve all experienced being bloated more times than we care to remember, and, to make matters worse, it can happen for a variety of reasons.
You may feel bloated due to…
- Food sensitivity
- Menstrual cycle
In your struggle to eliminate bloating once and for all, you’ve likely done a fair share of googling and followed the common advice of drink more water, exercise, avoid/eliminate certain foods, etc.
Today, we’re going to discuss how greens powders help with bloating. But first, let’s explain exactly what greens powders are.
What Are Greens Powders?
Greens powders contain various blends of nutrient-dense powdered vegetables, fruits, and other superfoods (many of which we don’t consume on a regular basis). This means that adding a high-quality greens superfoods supplement into your nutrition plan can provide additional micronutrients (e.g. vitamins, minerals, polyphenols, etc.) that you may rarely get in your daily diet.
Greens powders are meant to enhance (“supplement”) your diet and provide the body with additional micronutrients that it can use to improve total health, performance and well-being.
How Do Greens Powders Help With Bloating?
As we mentioned at the outset of this article, bloating can happen for a variety of reasons, but a few of the main causes of bloating are a lack of fiber, insufficient digestive enzymes, and an imbalance in your gut microbiome.
The right greens powders will provide these critical gut health supplements to help address these issues and help with bloating. This includes:
- Natural fiber
- Digestive enzymes
Digestive enzymes help your body break down food, including the ones that may be causing bloating. Our bodies naturally produce a variety of digestive enzymes, but sometimes it may not produce enough of the ones needed to digest the food based on your normal eating patterns. Supplementing with additional digestive enzymes provides additional digestive support and may help reduce bloating.
Probiotics are “good” gut bacteria. While you already have certain types of probiotics in your gut, your body needs a certain amount of diversity and concentration of these various strains of good bacteria.
Fiber " Prebiotics" provides food that nourish the “good”) gut in your bacteria in your gut. It also adds bulk to your stool to help keep you regular, which combats bloating.
“Bad” bacteria can also take up residence in your gut, causing a disturbance and upsetting the delicate balance of your microbiome, also known as dysbiosis. As you can guess, this isn’t exactly ideal, and a disrupted microbiome can lead to a host of unpleasant side effects, including bloating, inflammation, and brain fog (among others). of dysbiosis is bloating.
Supplementing with research-backed probiotics, such as LactoSpore, can help balance your microbiome, reduce bloating, and offer a number of other benefits, including mood, immune support, and well-being.[1,2,3]
