5 Natural Supplements That Help Reduce Christmas Dinner Bloating (Today)

Have you ever felt bloating after Christmas dinner?

As a young lad, after eating my grandmother’s Christmas dinner, I would look like I had swallowed a soccer ball and would soon be sound asleep on the sofa.

Dial forward some 45 years after learning I have celiac disease, and I can understand why the young body reacted in such a way to a meal full of wheat.

My solution is simple I avoid wheat and can then sit comfortably on the sofa and watch the Christmas day movie without falling asleep.

Have you felt bloating after Christmas dinners?

Do you want to avoid the same experience this year?

If you feel bloating, read on to learn which supplements I recommend.

Supplements to reduce Christmas dinner bloating

Increase your stomach acid production

One of the most common reasons for bloating after eating is a lack of acid production in the stomach.

Stomach acid helps break down protein-rich foods such as turkey.

If you have low stomach acid, the turkey will not be broken down sufficiently and cause bloating.

Reduced stomach acid-related bloating occurs 5-10 minutes after eating.

To help increase stomach acid production, I suggest the following supplements:

  1. Braggs Organic Apple Cider Vinegar – take one tablespoon in warm water for 5-10 minutes before eating.
  2. St Francis Canadian Bitters – take one teaspoon for 5-10 minutes before eating.
  3. Betaine HCL capsules – take one capsule during the meal.

Stimulate Digestive Enzymes

Digestive enzymes are mainly produced by the pancreas and the cells lining your small intestine.

These enzymes help to break down your food’s macronutrients, such as protein, into micronutrients, such as amino acids.

If you have reduced enzymes and foods are left in their macronutrient form, this can lead to inflammation and bloating.

This can be much worse if you are sensitive to a particular food protein such as gluten or casein.

Pancreatic deficiency bloating becomes apparent 30 minutes after eating.

To help increase the production of pancreatic enzymes, I suggest the following supplements:

Reduce Gas Production from Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth

Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth, or SIBO, is a condition that occurs when bacteria that normally live in the large intestine overgrow onto the small intestine.

A common symptom of SIBO is bloating that occurs roughly 30 minutes after eating.

I find SIBO in most clients with or without digestive symptoms such as bloating.

To help reduce bloating from SIBO, I suggest the following supplement:

What supplements should I take?

If you are unsure what supplements to take, I suggest the following:

Determine when your bloating starts after eating.

You probably have inadequate stomach acid if it starts 5-10 minutes after eating.

I would then begin with the apple cider vinegar.

If the bloating starts later, then consider starting with the Bitters.

If the bloating continues, then try the probiotics.
