Indications: For relief of bloating, belching, flatulence, flatulent colic, and heaviness particularly after eating. Also for relief of bitter and/or sour belching, and distended abdomen caused by bloating.
What causes bloating?
Intestinal gas is the cause of most digestive discomfort associated with bloating, belching, and flatulence. Gas in the digestive tract is normal in all people but the accumulation of gas in the stomach and the intestines is responsible for gas-related discomfort. The gas accumulates as the result of swallowing air during eating and drinking, and by certain foods.
When this gas is released, it is expelled through the mouth as belching and through the rectum as flatulence. If it is not expelled, it leads to bloating, which is an unpleasant sense of fullness and/or swelling in the abdomen. It has been described as a feeling of heaviness and is often accompanied by abdominal pain.
GasFix is a natural homeopathic product specially designed to provide relief when experiencing painful bloating after eating, as well as belching and flatulence that can accompany bloating. In addition to the homeopathic dilutions that target these specific symptoms, GasFix contains Activated Charcoal (Carbo Vegetabilis) which helps to relieve gas and bloating.
Gas from swallowed air
Several factors can impact the amount of air you swallow. To avoid swallowing excessive air, eat slowly and avoid:
Gas from foods
Gas produced in the intestines occurs because some foods are difficult to digest which can cause undigested food to ferment. Fiber and carbohydrates are particularly responsible for this kind of gas. Foods commonly associated with this kind of gas are wheat bran and other whole grains, beans, some vegetables, lactose in dairy products, and the sugars fructose and sorbitol.
Adults take 2 capsules with meals, or at the first sign of discomfort. Repeat after 2 hours if necessary. Do not exceed 16 capsules per day.
