Firstly, well done on successfully resolving your heartburn with our Heartburn Relief Kit! It can be a long road and we’re grateful that you put your faith in us to get there. So now that you’ve tackled that issue, it’s important to shift your focus to maintaining a healthy gut and addressing any other issues at play. Today we’re going to talk about the painful bloating that many of our clients struggle with even when their acid reflux is resolved.
What’s Causing Your Bloating?
If you have been suffering from bloating for a number of years, it may just seem like a normal part of life now. But it isn’t! No-one should have to put up with persistent bloating, cramping, constipation, and the embarrassment that comes with foul smelling gas. It’s time to start thinking about why your body is responding this way and what you can do about it. And remember, you’ve already overcome your acid reflux so this one will be a walk in the park!
The main issue we find with clients who experience these uncomfortable symptoms is a deficiency in digestive enzymes. These lil guys work hard in your gut to break down the food you eat so that it doesn’t sit fermenting in your gut causing all kinds of problems, including acid reflux! When food starts to collect in your gut it can put pressure on the LES and push that acid back up. And nobody wants that. These powerful enzymes also help you to absorb as many nutrients as possible so that you’re really feeling the benefits from all of that good food you’re eating.
Treating the Root Cause
If you remember back to when you started on the Heartburn Relief Kit, the plan worked by addressing the root cause of your acid reflux to resolve it completely. And this is exactly what digestive enzymes do for bloating. Bloating can have many causal factors, but for most people a digestive enzyme deficiency will often play a part. When you restore this balance you’ll start to see improvements in your digestion,
Our Digestive Catalyst contains the three essential digestive enzymes: Amylase, Lipase, and Protease. These are responsible for breaking down carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. We typically recommend 2 capsules per day, but adjustments can be made based on your lifestyle and individual needs. As you already know from being on the Heartburn Relief Kit program, every gut is unique, so it’s all about finding the perfect dosage for you. Monitoring the effects and adjusting the dosage accordingly is crucial to finding the right balance for your body.
Don’t Forget About Your Diet Too!
In addition to incorporating the Digestive Catalyst into your routine, paying attention to your diet can further enhance the benefits and support optimal digestion.
There are a number of foods that naturally contain digestive enzymes so it’s important to increase your intake of these where you can.
Give a few of these enzyme-rich foods a try!
- Avocado: Whether you have it on toast or with nachos, it not only adds a delicious touch to your meals but is also packed with enzymes.
- Kefir: This fermented dairy product can help promote a healthy gut environment and improve digestion.
- Pineapple: Contains bromelain, a potent enzyme that aids in the breakdown of protein.
- Mango: These are rich in amylase enzymes.
- Papaya: Helps break down proteins and supports the digestive process.

Remember, whilst adding these foods into your diet can be beneficial, they may not provide sufficient enzymes to address severe enzyme deficiencies. That’s why our Digestive Catalyst is so important for providing a concentrated and reliable source of the essential enzymes needed for optimal digestion.
By combining the benefits of the Digestive Catalyst supplement with a diet rich in enzyme-containing foods, you can take a well-rounded comprehensive approach to support your digestive system. So you’ll be addressing the underlying deficiencies while also nourishing your body with essential nutrients.
