    Take 388 to 584 mg of activated charcoal within two hours after a gas-forming meal to reduce flatulence.

  • Relax your gut with†traditional treatments†

    Try a carminative herbal blend containing peppermint, caraway, and/or fennel to help relax intestinal cramping and relieve gas

  • Try artichoke

    Take an extract providing 500 to 1,000 mg per day cynarin if your indigestion may be due to insufficient bile production by the liver.

  • Get a checkup

  • Slow down at the table

    Take time to eat slowly and chew your food thoroughly.

  • Try lactase enzymes

  • Check for food sensitivities

    Work with a practitioner knowledgeable about food intolerance to see if certain foods make your symptoms worse.
