Chris James Mind Body is supporting healthy eating this Christmas with “5 tips to Beat the Bloat” to accompany the launch of daily sachets of its “Gorgeous Greens”. The new formulation now includes extra enzymes, lipase, amylase, papain, and protease, which help to ease digestion and prevent bloating.
“I wanted to create a superior Greens supplement for busy healthy men and women. Enzymes are a key health trend as we head into 2017!” says Chris James, Founder of CJMB.
Packaged in a very cool cuboid box that looks great in your kitchen, a month’s supply of “Gorgeous Greens” (20 sachets) is just £29.

5 tips to Beat the Bloat this Christmas
1) Mind your P’s
Avoiding bloat isn’t only about avoiding foods; it’s key to eat more foods that are effective at battling bloat. Reach for a healthy helping of the three P’s: potassium, protein, and probiotics. You can benefit from a boost of potassium-rich foods like sweet potatoes, winter squash, citrus, bananas, and nuts, which help regulate excess sodium!
2) Consume Fibre
Make sure you’re getting enough fibre amidst the trays of holiday snacks. If you know you’re going somewhere that you won’t have a lot of control over your food choices, a fibre supplement can help a lot.
3) Slow down
Eating too quickly can cause you to swallow more air, worsening bloat. Take a full 30 minutes to finish a meal, which will help you banish the bloat and listen for when your body tells you it’s full.
4) Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
Water helps to speed up digestion and can counteract the effects of salt and carb-induced bloating. Aim for eight to ten glasses a day, especially during the holidays.
5) Start again tomorrow
Most importantly, if you overindulge at Christmas don’t beat yourself up! Indulging once in a while is not that big of a deal—just start fresh tomorrow.
