What is IBS?
Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a non-damaging gastrointestinal disorder, not a disease, and symptoms are caused by changes in the upper and lower intestinal tract. Recurrent symptoms include: constipation, diarrhea, passing mucus, abdominal bloating, and the feeling that a bowel movement is never-ending. What causes Irritable Bowel Syndrome has yet to be discovered, but researchers believe a combination of psychological and physical problems can bring its onset. Even though IBS has no cure, it can be managed by dietary change, medication, psychological help and, probiotics.
Why use probiotics?
So far many studies have been conducted and show promise for understanding and curing IBS. A few alternative treatments are available, since traditional medical treatment is inadequate. Peppermint oil is thought to reduce bowel spasm. However, the use of probiotics is growing because of its numerous positive effects on the digestive system. While using probiotics to promote a healthy intestinal tract, one is bound to reduce the symptoms of IBS. 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 effective probiotics are Lactobacillus plantarum which relieves bloating and abdominal pain; Lactobacillus rhamnosus decreases the intensity and frequency of abdominal pain in kids; and Lactobacillus brevis which lessens the frequency of diarrhea and abdominal pain. Yogurt is not a source of probiotics because it doesn’t hold all the necessary strains of bacteria your gut flora needs. Enteric pill form is the most effective.
