Beating the Bloating:
  • Eat slowly, and consume smaller, more frequent meals
  • Chew your foods well
  • Drink beverages at room temperature
  • Enzymes: Eating foods packed with enzymes is also a great way to reduce your bloating! Enzymes naturally help your body breakdown and digest foods. Foods like yogurt are a great way to get your source of enzymes. Another great source would be New Earth’s Enzymes Plus blend. With a superior blend of 12 plant-based enzymes, plus Wild Bluegreen Body, fennel, ginger, and cayenne, Enzymes Plus allow your body to digest and utilize a broader spectrum of nutrients.

Chewing your food could protect against infection

Have a great holiday season!
