Liquid probiotic improves IBS symptoms by 63%

A new study has revealed that a multi-strain liquid probiotic can dramatically reduce major symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and get your digestive health back on track.

There is a digestive disease epidemic and it goes by the name of IBS. As many as 1 in 4 people suffer from it… but what is it? Well, IBS is simply a collective name for a host of common digestive symptoms such as bloating, pain, and bad bowel habits like diarrhoea and constipation.

A major problem with IBS is that there are few solutions, but a lot of scientists think the bugs in your gut are be to blame. So, improving your gut bacteria with a good dose of probiotics could help.

And that's exactly what newly published research suggests. Researchers from Kings College Hospital tested a relatively new liquid probiotic in 152 people with IBS that had not improved with previous treatments, and impressively found that after just 12-weeks there was a 63% improvement in symptoms, especially bowel habits and abdominal pain.

This is great news for people with digestive problems. So if you suffer from the symptoms of IBS you could give a liquid probiotic a go for 6 to 12-weeks to see if it helps. But, remember healthy eating, food sensitivities (especially gluten), exercise, and regular relaxation are also important for healthy digestion as well.
