If you suffer from Irritable bowel syndrome, I think you’re always on the lookout for something new to help relieve the uncomfortable symptoms.
Irritable bowel syndrome is a common problem that affects the digestive system. Symptoms can include stomach cramps, diarrhoea, constipation, bloating, wind, gas, pain, and spasms. Your symptoms can come and go depending on the cause and what triggers you are exposed to. But it’s nearly always an ongoing problem that often takes time to figure out what’s going on.
Certain foods are associated with aggravating the problem but it could be any food. Having a food intolerance test can help you figure out which foods to avoid. Otherwise, a food diary can help, use this to track what you eat on a daily basis. You might find a pattern, it could be the bread you are eating, or it could be the butter on the bread, it takes time to figure it out. It is worth making the effort to see what foods are your triggers.
A deficiency in your good gut bacteria is a common cause of irritable bowel syndrome. There are many probiotic supplements to choose from and over the years I have talked about many of them. I am excited to tell you about a new one made by Quest. Many of you will be familiar with the brand, a lot of research goes into the products they produce.
I love this new product, Tumbiotix Gold – For your Tummy. It contains three specific probiotics for gut health, as well as Casperone, an extract from Boswellia. This has powerful anti-inflammatory properties to calm an irritated and inflamed gut. The combination can help regulate the immune response and work towards reducing inflammation.
If you suffer from an Irritable Bowel Disease like Crohn’s or Ulcerative Colitis it may be of benefit for you too. An imbalance of good gut bacteria and an overactive immune system may be contributing to your symptoms. Increased inflammation in the gut can be the cause of intense intestinal pain, cramps, and painful bowel movements. Tumbiotix Gold could be something to help ease your discomfort.
The good gut bacteria are in a unique delayed release capsule ensuring that they are not destroyed by stomach acid. Tumbiotix Gold with three probiotics and Boswellia is worth taking a look at for IBS or IBD.
