Description of Formula
Gas & Bloating goes to work quickly to help reduce bloating, gas and the feeling of heaviness that can occur after meals. Pure natural Vegetable Charcoal and Fennel Whole Phytocomplex Concentrates promote the absorption and elimination of gastrointestinal gas. Completing this formula is a proprietary blend of different herbs that provides beneficial effects for the gastrointestinal system. Star Anise, Caraway and Cumin are used to help improve digestive function, and the soothing properties of Chamomile and Lemon Balm freeze-dried extracts, naturally processed to ensure the best concentration and absorption, provide natural relief to the intestine.*
Vegetable charcoal has a long history of use and is known for its ability to readily adsorb gases and liquids in the intestines. It also supports healthy intestinal bacteria that promote good digestion. Vegetable charcoal is also used to absorb toxins from gastrointestinal mucosa while at the same time facilitating healthy elimination. Vegetable charcoal is widely used for flatulence, diarrhea, and other dyspeptic disturbances.*
Fennel fruits (also called seeds) are rich in essential oils and have been prized for their calming abilities. In scientific experiments, fennel essential oil has been reported to have anti- spasmodic effects on the intestinal smooth muscle of animals. Fennel is used to prevent the formation of intestinal gas and the use of Fennel has been approved by the Commission E of Germany for the treatment of dyspeptic discomforts to support gastrointestinal tract health, and to alleviate feelings of fullness and flatulence.*
Cumin is an essential oil rich plant that in traditional medicine has been used to prevent the formation of intestinal gas and for stomach discomforts. Cumin fruits are a major flavor component in food products, including baked goods, condiments, and relishes.*
The active ingredients in Chamomile flowers exert actions that are protective and soothing to the mucous membranes in the stomach and intestines. European monographs recommend it for symptomatic treatment of minor gastrointestinal disturbances including minor spasms, distention, flatulence and eructation.*
Anise fruits (also known as seeds) are rich in essential oils and are approved by the Commission E of Germany for treating digestive discomforts, flatulent colic and other dyspeptic disorders due to its anti-spasmodic and stomach calming properties. Its flavorful aroma also allows Anise to be used extensively as a spice and as a flavor component in many food products.*

Caraway is widely used as a domestic spice; it is also extensively used in commercial food products, particularly baked goods.
