Unlike some gastrointestinal diseases, such as ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) does not cause inflammation. However, people with IBS have a greatly diminished quality of life. In fact, several symptoms, both physical and psychological, occur with this this condition, such as:

  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Bloating
  • Abdominal pain
  • Flatulence
  • A decrease in productivity
  • Limited sexual activity
  • Anxiety
  • Depressive signals

Relief with probiotics 

Fortunately, there are solutions to improve this condition and alleviate symptoms. This is the case with probiotics, which are live and beneficial micro-organisms that strengthen intestinal and digestive health. A probiotic supplement supports the bacteria already present in the intestinal flora, maintains a balanced digestive system and improves overall health. For those who suffer from this health problem, certain probiotics have been proven to help with irritable bowel syndrome1.
