Stomach Issues? Ixcela can help.

Due to severe bloating, cramping, and diarrhea, Hayden would often skip half of his race nutrition during his Half Ironman races. He could hardly stomach the gels and drinks that would help him sustain his energy and electrolyte levels. After testing with Ixcela and working with an Ixcela Registered Dietitian for just a couple of months, Hayden had a new game plan for race fueling.

    Stomach issues can be related to:

    A damaged or leaky gut

    Inadequate nutrients

    Too much caffeine

    Fueling with the wrong foods

    Too much stress

    Poor sleep quality

    Is it a food sensitivity? Probably not.

    Dealing with bloating, diarrhea, or stomachaches when training or racing is a real drag. It's common for runners to suffer through stomach issues during races. But it doesn't have to be that way.

    Many runners push through their discomfort and run despite their stomach issues. They may blame food sensitivities like lactose intolerance for their symptoms—even after cutting out suspected triggers and finding no relief.

    How do you know what to do?

    Ixcela programs use testing to identify the problem. Then, an Ixcela Registered Dietitian explains your data and prioritizes your food, supplement, and lifestyle recommendations based on your goals and your willingness to change. No more guesswork!
