With trousers of three different sizes neatly folded in my wardrobe and simethicone capsules at ready in my medicinal cabinet, bloating and I have personally known each other for as long as I can remember.
The feeling of a stretched and uncomfortable belly can sometimes feel like a squatter unapologetically residing in the home that is my body.
I have never given it the keys or even an invite and whenever I think it’s finally gone, somehow it makes its way back.
For most of my life, I came to terms with this annoying occurrence but it got way worse in June 2022.
Described as “game-changing” and “miracle”, the capsules promise to beat even very stubborn bloats.
Charles Instone, Founder of Wild Dose, shared with me that 89 percent of their surveyed customers saw results within two weeks of taking the small brown pill.
He explained that the bloating relief “planted in nature” works well thanks to its unique cocktail of three ingredient groups designed to target different aspects of bloating.
Instone said: “The product uses a blend of herbal extracts known for reducing gas, water retention and improving regularity which are three leading causes of bloating.
“Paired with this, its probiotic strains have been shown to work effectively against bloating and irritable bowel syndrome symptoms.
“Lastly, the digestive enzymes in the formula help break down food effectively which aids digestion and reduces gas production.”
Combining herbs, probiotics and digestive enzymes, this one-of-a-kind formula should be taken daily when needed or before meals.
As I flushed down my first two capsules with a big gulp of water before my lunch, I was both excited and sceptical.
This product seemed to have made a real difference for a lot of online shoppers but I wasn’t sure if it’d be enough to tackle my ulcerated and inflamed stomach.
I was battling a particularly stubborn bout of bloating for the three days before taking my first dose. My tummy felt extremely tight and hard to touch.
As you can take up to six capsules of A Dose For Bloating, I settled on four to give myself a good fighting chance.
By early evening, my stomach started to feel less uncomfortable and began to shrink. The next morning, my pyjamas felt loose and I was greeted by a flat tummy.
This really did feel like a miracle until two days later when my bloat came back and wouldn’t subside even after taking four capsules again.
I kept patiently trialling the supplement for two weeks, keeping in mind Instone’s advice that the best results usually come at the two-week mark.
“Two weeks is normally enough time for the capsules to work against even tough bloating, as it can take a while for the herbal extracts to gradually reduce the bloating,” he said.
Overall, the capsules worked for me on eight out of 14 days and on the last four days, my tummy stayed magically flat.
I feel like long-term use seems to really do the trick with particularly stubborn stomachs like the one I have.
And even though my two weeks are up, I feel the supplement made enough difference for me to purchase it again.
I especially like that it combines both probiotics and turmeric, which I usually take separately on a daily basis. So, this little pill condenses my supplements and expenses into a smaller packaging, while keeping my tummy quite happy.
