Do you suffer from gut pain, wind, bloating, diarrhoea or constipation? You are not alone...
Beetroot Nutrition specialises in gut health nutrition and the management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, or IBS, using the low FODMAP dietary approach. We will work alongside you to find out what dietary factors may be triggering these symptoms, providing you with practical dietary solutions, resources and recipes that will help you on your journey from discomfort to digestive bliss.
What is a FODMAP?
FODMAPs are sugars that are not completely broken down and absorbed in our gut. They attract water and when fermented by gut bacteria, it creates gas, resulting in the gut wall being stretched and expanded.
For people suffering from IBS this can result in pain, excessive wind, bloating and altered bowel habits.
Who are low FODMAP diets designed for?
Low FODMAP diets are for people with medically diagnosed IBS, which affects 7 out of 10 people. If you have not been diagnosed with IBS we recommend you consult with your doctor first to assess your symptoms, and to rule out other possible conditions.
What are the benefits of following a low FODMAP dietary plan?
3 out of 4 people who follow a low FODMAP diet notice improvement in their symptoms, including reduced pain and discomfort, reduced bloating and distention, improved bowel habit and improved quality of life.
