Background information Unlike similar foods and supplements containing friendly bacteria, 'One week flat' is free from added sugars and does not contain gluten, and may therefore be suitable for those with bloating. Abdominal or stomach bloating is thought to be associated with food intolerances, constipation, over-eating, PMS or intestinal gas; leaving the abdomen feeling uncomfortable, full and tight. If you have poor digestion, waste materials and the gases they produce can remain in the gut for long periods of time, often at high temperatures and pressures. This causes bloating and stretching of the gut walls beyond their comfortable limits. An imbalance of bacteria in the gut may result in poor digestive health, bloating, production of smelly and uncomfortable gases, and sluggish bowels. This imbalance is known as dysbiosis.
Healthcare professionals can see Scientific Research on live cultures and bloating.
