How many ads have you seen for bloating supplements in the past month? 10? 100? 1000?!
My Instagram is a constant stream of “Bloated Babes” and “Gassy Gals.” What’s next… Digestion Divas?
I decided to take the lid off of 3 viral supplements (literally) to see if they actually work.
Being a certified nutritionist and CPT, I discuss bloating and constipation a lot. Digestive issues can be amplified with stress, anxiety, poor sleep or hormonal changes. As busy moms, we all have some combination of these issues.
And when you’re running to McDonalds in between soccer practices, eventually your gut is going to protest.
Below is an honest review of 3 anti-bloat supplements: Unbloat, Lemme Debloat and Ritual Synbiotic+. I (over) analyzed the labels, read reviews, stalked their website and yes, even tried them.
There was a clear winner.
If you are struggling to beat the bloat, I’m a firm believer that adjustments to health and diet are the best place to start. However, supplements that contain the right ingredients can make a dramatic difference in the speed and degree to which you find relief.
Take a few minutes to read the roundup below and I promise - you will stop being a chronic Constipated Chica (I had to!).
Unbloat: This is no one-trick pony. Unbloat uses 40 carefully selected ingredients to nourish and support the digestive system. The formula is divided between 21 digestive enzymes, seven key probiotics, six herbal remedies (like peppermint, turmeric), four essential nutrients (like magnesium), and two probiotic fibers. 5/5
Lemme Debloat: According to their supplement label, the top three ingredients in Lemme Debloat are tapioca syrup, organic cane sugar and pectin. While it does contain 3, high-quality probiotic strains, I struggle with the 3g of sugar per serving. 2/5
Ritual Synbiotic: This is a probiotic that contains just 11B CFUs per serving. It also contains prebiotics which is essential for providing “food” for the probiotic. You might still need to take digestive enzymes or herbal remedies to get immediate relief from bloating or soothe your digestion tract on an as-needed basis. 3/5
Unbloat: When it comes to supplements, capsules are the fastest way for your body to absorb the active ingredients and start feeling the effects immediately. These capsules are easy to swallow. 5/5
Lemme Debloat: Like many other gummy supplements, Lemme Debloat contains sugar. Sugar will slow down and even inhibit the absorption of the active ingredients - making the supplement less effective. 1/5
Ritual Synbiotic: As a delayed-release capsule, Ritual is designed to help the live probiotic strains reach the colon and provide long-term gut support. However, the Synbiotic is not designed to relieve specific bloating or constipation symptoms. 4/5
Unbloat: One-time purchase is $2.50 per serving which is expensive. However, if you opt for subscription or even quarterly subscription the price goes down to $44.99 per bottle ($1.48 per serving) which is a great deal.
Lemme Debloat: Currently out of stock on their website, but typically $30 per bottle ($0.50 per serving)
Ritual Synbiotic: $54 per bottle ($1.74/serving)
