Got Digestive Issues this Holiday Season? These are the Best Supplements to Take
The holidays are the most wonderful time of the year! Pretty decorations, laughs with friends and family, gifts, cocktails, tasty foods, and indulgent desserts are staples during the holiday season. While there is nothing wrong with eating and drinking more than normal, particularly less nutritious foods, and you should never feel guilty for enjoying the foods you love, all that extra fat, sugar, and calories can really throw your digestive tract out of whack.
When you are consuming foods you don’t eat on a regular basis, and you are eating lots of it, your stomach is certainly going to feel it. You may feel puffy, bloated, get stomach pains, cramps, feel sluggish, or like you need to go to the bathroom all the time. A lot can happen to our bodies when we do stuff we are not used to.
With that being said, to help get you through this season, there are a few great supplements you can take to help keep your gut feeling pretty good and have your gut be more resilient when you get back to your normal diet.
In this post, we will explore the best supplements to take that support gut heath and the digestive tract, so you feel a bit better after eating two slices of pie and six Christmas cookies with frosting!
By now you have probably used, or at least hear of, how good ginger is for your stomach and with treating nausea. Ginger can help soothe stomach aches and pains, stop nausea, treat gas, bloating, and diarrhea. Ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory that can reduce inflammation in the body, including the stomach.
Many people swear by taking activated charcoal to help prevent bloating from happening in the first place, or at the very least, reducing bloating afterwards. Activated charcoal works by trapping all of the excess gas in your stomach that causes bloating. Charcoal has amazing absorption properties, which makes it easy to trap excess gas in the stomach.
The best way to use activated charcoal is to take the supplement before you expect to have an indulgent meal to help stop the bloating before it can even begin. If you cannot do this, taking it as soon as possible after you feel bloating will also help ease bloating and discomfort.
Peppermint is an easy to find and inexpensive solution for treating stomach issues and nausea. Peppermint is known for helping with gas, indigestion, cramps, stomach aches, pains, diarrhea, and aids in healthy digestive function. One of the best ways to take peppermint is by using a pure essential oil from a reputable company with third-party testing or by drinking peppermint tea, which is by far the easiest and most budget-friendly option.
