What is IBS?


A non-damaging gastrointestinal disorder, Irritable Bowel Syndrome is not a disease, and symptoms are manly the result of changes in the upper and lower intestinal tract. Repetitive symptoms include: diarrhea, passing mucus, abdominal bloating, constipation, and the feeling that a bowel movement is unremitting. What causes IBS has yet to be exposed, but researchers estimate that a combination of psychological and physical problems can trigger its inception. Even though Irritable Bowel Syndrome has no cure, it can be managed by medication, change in diet, psychological help and, probiotics.


Have you tried probiotics for IBS?


So far the many studies that have been conducted show promise for understanding and curing IBS. A few alternative treatments are available, traditional medical treatment being deficient. Peppermint oil is believed to reduce bowel spasm. However, the fame of probiotics is growing due to its many positive effects on the digestive system. While using probiotics to promote a healthy intestinal tract one is bound to reduce some IBS symptoms.  More and more people with IBS are choosing to supplement their diet with probiotics because of their noteworthy positive effects on health and on the immune system. But not all probiotic strains of bacteria are beneficial to IBS patients; the most beneficial probiotics are Lactobacillus rhamnosus which reduces the potency and frequency of abdominal pain in kids; Lactobacillus plantarum which alleviates bloating and abdominal pain; and Lactobacillus brevis which lessens the frequency of diarrhea and abdominal pain. Yogurt is a weak source of probiotics and it doesn’t hold all the necessary strains of needed bacteria. Enteric pill form is the most effective.
