Taken from our Nature’s Most Potent Remedies Series, the overnight toxins flush is one of the most effective natural remedies to quickly and safely remove toxins, excess gas and accumulated waste from your body as you sleep.
The overnight flush is also very helpful as a natural remedy for bloating caused by occasional constipation.

Most people notice reduced bloating fairly quickly, typically within 24 hours.

  • Squeeze the juice of ½ organic lemon and add 1 teaspoon of organic raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar into 16 ounces of distilled water.
  • Drink before bedtime with 4-8 capsules of oxy-powder   on an empty stomach away from any foods or other supplements.
    Oxy-powder releases oxygen in the colon to detoxify and loosen toxins, undigested food particles and waste buildup so they can be flushed out naturally by the body.
  • If you have never taken oxy-powder before, start with 2 capsules and gradually increase if needed.
  • Expect the next day to have a series of bowel movements with many of the excess gas and stored waste being eliminated. Most people feel a significant relief when these toxins are being flushed out.

Digestive enzymes with your meals

If you suspect that your bloating is related to your diet, you may want to take digestive enzymes with your meals.
Digestive enzymes break down the foods we eat into their smaller building blocks, which can help the body to properly digest various food. The result is usually better digestion and less bloating.

Since different enzymes are required to digest different type of foods, it is important to make sure the formula you use contains all the enzymes needed to digest most common foods, especially the ones that you typically eat and include in your diet.

veganzyme VeganZyme  by Dr. Edward Group is a great example of a multi-enzymes supplement for bloating we use in many of our natural protocols to support the digestion of foods and relieve bloating and other digestive issues.
With a total of 20 digestive and systemic enzymes , it is designed to support the digestion of a wide variety of foods including foods that are hard to digest, making it ideal for many different diets, cuisines, and health conditions. This helps to keep things simple, and even dining out or eating larger variety of foods that may not always be ideal can still be well managed by taking 1-3 capsules before your meals.

This doesn’t mean you can now eat junk food and expect your bloating issues to fade away just because you are taking digestive enzymes.
Taking enzymes however, can be a very effective and convenient way to help relieve bloating quickly while you still trying to improve your diet or find out the cause of your bloating.
