Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Females under the age of 35 are most at risk of IBS.
Symptoms of IBS include:
- Abdominal pain
IBS can be treated by medicines, diet and dietary supplements.
Antidiarrheal medicines include: Imodium, Kaopectate and Pepto-Bismol. Depending on the cause of your diarrhoea, your doctor may prescribe you antibiotics.
Although diet doesn’t cause IBS, fatty foods, dairy products, alcohol and coffee can make it worse. Try to reduce your intake of these and increase your intake of fruit and vegetables (preferably raw) and wholegrain bread and cereals.
Dietary Supplements – Phloe
Phloe is a 100% natural dietary supplement made from Kiwifruit. It has been clinically shown to keep you regular and avoid digestive discomfort.
Phloe consists of: enzymes, fibre and prebiotics.
Enzymes work gently to support movement in the bowel aiding transit time and allowing toxins and waste to move through the bowel quickly.
The fibre in Phloe works by bulking the stool with moisture and aiding transit time through the bowel.
Phloe’s prebiotics have been shown to increase the good bacteria as well as inhibit the bad bacteria levels in your digestive system, resulting in a much better balance overall.
Zyactinase (from kiwifruit) is the active ingredient in Phloe.
It is 100% natural.
Phloe has proved its effectiveness and safety by undergoing a number of controlled clinical trials. These trials showed Phloe had no side effects such as diarrhoea, cramping or spasms (associated with some laxative products).
