Nearly everyone experiences some sort of gut issues at some point or another. What is worse is, a full third of those who suffer say they can’t find an effective solution that eases their symptoms.
There’s no question that gut issues (gastro-intestinal (GI) discomfort and digestive issues) can affect your quality of life.It can manifest as abdominal pain and cramps, bloated belly and flatulence, chronic constipation, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), heartburn, acid reflux and nausea.
PROGAST Gastro-intestinal Support Drops contain 10 botanical extracts. If you’re one of the 33% who haven’t yet found a product that works well for you, PROGAST may be your solution.
What’s causing gut discomfort?
There are many reasons for gut discomfort. But, what if you’re getting enough probiotics and eating healthily, yet you’re still experiencing belly bloat and discomfort, gas, or occasional constipation or loose stools?
It may surprise you to learn that even those with a healthy gut microbiome can suffer from time to time with digestive discomfort.
There are many reasons why:
- A stressful or demanding lifestyle.
- A genetic predisposition making you susceptible to gut issues.
- Undiagnosed food sensitivities, or allergies.
- A diet that is excessive in fructose and sugars, all linked to loose stools and tummy noise.
- Inflammation in your stomach from taking over-the-counter or prescription-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
- An issue with your gut-brain cross talk.
GI issues affect both men and women, but for various reasons. Women suffer more than men.

Your gut and brain communicate
You may be surprised to learn that you have two brains, the one in your head and another in your gut.
The vagus nerve allows the gut and the brain to communicate.
During foetal development, one part of this brain system forms into your central nervous system, while the other develops into your enteric nervous system.
Both ‘brains’ are connected to each other through your vagus nerve. This connection is what is known as the ‘gut-brain axis’. When you feel stressed, it can impact the messages travelling along this axis.
In response, stress signals unleash a firestorm of neurotransmitters and cytokines (molecules that can promote distress in your GI tract).
Regardless of gender, stress can affect your gut in numerous ways. It has been known to:
- Alter GI motility and secretion.
- Decrease oxygenation to your gut.
- Negatively impact your intestinal microflora.
- Heighten sensations from the gut.
- Slow blood flow to your digestive system, up to four times less.
- Adversely affect your GI mucosa’s ability to regenerate itself.
- Decrease enzyme output as much as 20 000-fold.
No wonder you feel abdominal discomfort when this happens. Take action today and turn gastrointestinal discomfort into a distant memory.
