    What does it do?

    Bloatease improves your digestion and flattens your midsection

    Kale smoothies. Hot yoga. Kombucha. Eating several small meals a day. Thirty-day detox diets … For some people nothing, not even a very healthy lifestyle, seems to flatten a bloated stomach.

    Chronic bloating, indigestion, flatulence and unproductive elimination can be quite disconcerting and damaging to self-confidence. For some people who have insufficient digestion, the problem is much more critical, manifesting as chronic painful abdominal distention. And some women, although they may not experience painful symptoms of digestive disharmony, they do suffer from emotional turmoil when asked how far along in pregnancy they are when they're not pregnant, just bloated.

    Some people may ask, "What's the point of eating healthy and exercising if nothing can reduce my bloated belly?"

    Classic Formula for Modern-Day Digestive Troubles

    Thankfully, there is a natural herbal remedy to banish bloating once and for all. It's called BloatEase and it works for both chronic bloating and acute situations when you eat an unhealthy meal and have an "upset stomach."

    Based on the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) formula, Mu Xiang Shun Qi Wan, BloatEase is a time-tested, proven solution for digestive upset and stomach distention.

    The offending foods we eat today are radically different (and processed) compared to what ancient Chinese people consumed. But the traditional herbs in BloatEase remain effective for 21st century dietary imbalances, including abdominal-area bloating, and other symptoms of poor digestive efficiency.

    How does BloatEase Work?

    According to TCM theory, a smooth flow of Qi is critical for strong digestion. When Qi is stagnant, especially in the primary digestive organs such as the Stomach, Spleen, and intestines, distention and bloating may occur. When bloating occurs, it's indicative that the food and fluids are stagnant in the digestive system and remain in there longer than necessary. The Spleen is responsible for transforming food into Qi and Blood, which provide energy for our bodies. If the Spleen is not functioning properly, excess fluid or phlegm accumulates in the body and food is not properly digested.

    The 11 all-natural herbs in BloatEase corrects digestive imbalances by promoting the flow of Qi to the digestive organs.

    Mu Xiang (Aucklandia Root), the herb which this classic formula's name is based on, promotes the movement of Qi, especially in the Spleen and Stomach and the intestines. It's been used for centuries for Spleen Qi deficiency symptoms including abdominal fullness, distention, and bloating. It also relaxes smooth muscle in the intestinal walls, which prevents harmful bacteria from forming. It works synergistically with other herbs in BloatEase for even more effectiveness.

    The next herb in the formula, Sha Ren (Cardamom Seed), which is related to ginger (see below), removes dampness, warms the Spleen and Stomach, and may help stop vomiting and diarrhea. In cases related to poor appetite, it may also help alleviate abdominal distention.

    Xiang Fu (Cyperi rhizome) also promotes Qi movement and soothes the Liver. The next herb, Chen Pi (Dried Tangerine Peel), is a Spleen tonic and helps promote the movement of Qi in the Stomach and Spleen. It may help lessen the severity of nausea and vomiting by drying dampness.

    If you suffer from stomach distension, BloatEase has one of the most effective herbs - Lai Fu Zi (Radish Seed) - to ease distention by moving stagnant food out of the stomach. Historically, Lai Fu Zi has been used in TCM as a digestive aid for acid reflux, diarrhea and abdominal distention.

    There are two other herbs that resolve distention and strengthen stomach function: Hou Po (Magnolia Bark) and Zhi Qiao (Bitter Orange Peel).

    Cang Zhu (Atractylodes Rhizome) dries dampness in the Spleen and Stomach, while also strengthening the Spleen, as does Gan Cao (Licorice Root), which also resolves toxicity. Licorice has been studied extensively for its two major compounds, glycyrrhizin and flavonoids. The former possess strong anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties; the latter are powerful antioxidants, which may promote healing in digestive tract cells.

    And finally, Sheng Jiang (Fresh Ginger), relieves nausea and warms the middle.

    Does Research Support BloatEase?

    A study on Mu Xiang, known by its Latin name as Radix Aucklandiae (RA), was published in Pharmaceutical Biology. The researchers wanted to know why Mu Xiang enjoys traditional popularity for its antidiarrheal effects. "Although there are many investigations on its chemical constituents and pharmacologic actions, few studies explaining its activity and mechanism in gastrointestinal disorders are available," said the researchers in the abstract. Their conclusion: "RA played a spasmolytic role in gastrointestinal motility, which is probably mediated through the inhibition of muscarinic receptors, 5-HT receptors, and calcium influx ... All these results provide a pharmacological basis for its clinical use in the gastrointestinal tract."1
