What you should do if you experience bloating with DMN

What you should do if you experience bloating with DMN

First, it’s quick and easy to reduce the amount of DMN that you’re taking. As mentioned above, the most important thing is consistent daily use, not whether or not you fulfill the full serving size. If you’re experiencing bloating, it makes sense to reduce the amount of DMN that you’re using to an amount that you’re able to tolerate better. You can consider following the progression described above.

Additionally, you could consider gently warming your DMN while you adapt and adjust to it. As you will read below, we generally recommend that DMN be consumed at room temperature. But within the context of having some gut symptoms with DMN, you may find it more soothing to initially consume DMN at a luke warm temperature. Once again, the most important thing is to find what works for you and to get your DMN daily for optimal gut support.

Second, WHY are you experiencing bloating? This is a question that you should discuss with your healthcare provider. Some examples of health issues that may be associated with bloating with DMN:

  • Active constipation
  • Gut dysbiosis (which may be present in irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, and many other digestive or other health conditions)
  • Small intestine bacterial overgrowth
  • Histamine intolerance
  • FODMAP intolerance, particularly if DMN is combined with other FODMAP sources

Once again, it is essential to discuss these issues and receive personalized advice from your healthcare provider. In the coming pages, I will provide some education around these issues to help facilitate and empower that discussion.
