Hi Everyone 

It's been a week since my first "desparate"  post and I must thank everyone for their advice - what a lifesaver !  I'm now on a mega super duper supply of numerous vits and I think they are actually helping - yay!!

One quick question  -  any tips/vits on how to manage/help bloating. 

Off to vote in the Scottish Referendum shortlysmilesmilesmile

Thanks for now

      Hi Gillian

      i take the H&B Mega Potency Acidophilus with pectin ( 3 Billion) 

      they are good... i take one in morning and one in evening ..

    dont know if you take a probiotic .. ' Acidophilus'

    Probiotics For Bloating

    Probiotics are often referred to as your body's 'good bacteria'.  

    The official definition states that a probiotic is a live microorganism which will confer health benefits on the human host.  

    Some of these benefits for example include the way in which probiotics help to break down food and extract minerals and nutrients essential to the body.

    There are many types of probiotic bacteria, one of the most well-known is called Lactobacillus acidophilus or L.

    acidophilus for short.

    i take these daily they are great for bloat and digestive issues.. 😃

      Thanks for your fab info as  always!  I will def give them a try. 

      I've always suffered a little from fluid retention but sypmptoms seem to have got worse - overnight - again !

      I take boots natural herbal water relief tablets (as and when required)  but wondered if you had any recommendations?

      Your knowledge on the menopause is amazing and such a great help to everyone.

      Thanks again

      Hi Gillian

      years ago i use to take the blue box Aqua ban tablets as and when, i bet they are similar to the boots ones..

      that was years ago though before my periods stopped ..

      the Acidophilus is really good, many benefits and certainly sorts bloat out
