IBS

image IBS

IBS, or irritable bowel syndrome, is a chronic gastrointestinal disorder of unknown cause. IBS symptoms are characterised most commonly by cramping, abdominal pain, bloating and intermittent diarrhoea often alternating with constipation. Sufferers of IBS can experience abdominal distention, the sensation of incomplete evacuation and the passage of mucus.

With IBS, stomach pain and discomfort is caused by the irregular and uncontrolled movements of muscles around the large intestine. There are many factors that might trigger the spasms including food intolerances, stress and hormonal changes. Not only can these cramps become agonising, associated irregular bowel movements often cause diarrhoea or constipation.

Sufferers of constipation and diarrhoea may benefit from taking more fibre. Most of us do not eat enough fibre (both soluble and insoluble) which is one reason we suffer with constipation or diarrhoea. Fibre offers little nutritional value but plays an important part in digestive health. Soluble fibre swells in water which bulks up the stool. This in turn regulates movements of the bowel, reducing the likeliness of abdominal discomfort.

There are many natural products and remedies that can help keep your gut in check. Although you can take medicines to directly stop pain and other IBS symptoms, it is worth trying to prevent the symptoms in the first place. First try finding out what triggers your IBS (such as stress, diet or allergies) and see which of these factors you can alter to make things easier on your digestion.

Express Chemist stock various medicines and natural remedies to maintain a healthy gut, including soluble fibre which help to regulate bowel movement, and probiotics that can balance out micro-flora in the gut. Popular natural IBS treatments include A. Vogel Milk Thistle Complex and Lamberts Ibisene.
