Frequently Asked Questions
What is IBS?
IBS, or Irritable Bowel Syndrome, is a common intestinal
digestive disorder with varying symptoms which can be
persistent or periodic. IBS affects both men and women,
and symptoms are usually not gender-specific; however,
most people who suffer from IBS are women. Irritable Bowel
Syndrome usually occurs in people from their teenage years
to early 40s.
What causes IBS?
The cause of IBS is not fully known, although half of all people
who suffer from it may mark the start of their symptoms to a
major life event such as moving to a new house, changing jobs
or experiencing unusual personal stress.
What are the main symptoms of IBS?
There are many symptoms for IBS which people report regularly. Most often, several symptoms occur simultaneously and are more recently defined primarily as IBS-D (Diarrhea predominant) and IBS-C (Constipation predominant). Those with IBS-D have frequent, loose, watery bowel movements and usually experience an immediate need to pass their stool; this urge may be difficult to control, and “accidents” are common. People with IBS-C have a difficult time with bowel movements and also have them less often. They usually strain and cramp during a bowel movement and may pass little or no stool at all, even after trying. Painful cramps are usually in the lower half of the abdomen, are often made worse after eating and only relieved after a bowel movement.
The most general symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome are as follows:
· Abdominal pain
· Abdominal cramping
· Abdominal discomfort
· Changes in bowel movements
· Diarrhea (can be severe)
· Alternating constipation and diarrhea
· Constant urge to have a bowel movement
· Change in stools (harder, looser, thinner, or softer than usual)
· Incomplete evacuation
· Upset stomach
· Distension of the abdomen (that is visible)
· Loss of appetite
· Mucus in the stool
Individuals with IBS rarely have all of these symptoms, but usually more than one. Symptoms range from mild to severe may be significant for a few weeks and then subside for a period of time. Sometimes, people with IBS have some symptoms unrelated to the digestive tract such as urinary or sexual problems. But, for most people, once the symptoms of IBS begin, they tend to persist and worsen. At that time, they begin to actively search for detailed information about IBS and seek medical advice and treatment. Most allopathic treatments (principles of mainstream medical practice) involve pharmaceuticals which primarily address the symptoms of IBS, but some of which result in unwanted, unpleasant and adverse side effects. OTC preparations also focus on temporary relief symptoms, but not the cause.
What is IBS Aid?
IBS Aid is a unique and patented product which contains a rich dietary source of specific concentrated nucleotides. Nucleotides are the building blocks of DNA and RNA which are needed by the body in very large quantities to produce the millions of cells it needs every day to carry on all of its metabolic, disease fighting, growth, repair and health maintenance functions.
How does IBS Aid work?
IBS Aid addresses some of the causes of IBS rather than the symptoms. Repeated research has verified that IBS Aid increases the length and surface area of the intestinal villi which facilitate digestion in the small intestine. In addition, it changes the ratio of bacteria in the large intestine from mostly undesirable bacteria (E. coli) to primarily "friendly" and health supporting bacteria (Lactobacilli).
How can IBS Aid help people living with IBS?
In multiple studies done at universities and commercial laboratories, IBS Aid was shown to substantially reduce or eliminate many to all of the symptoms related to gastrointestinal distress such as: chronic diarrhea, frequent urgency, painful cramps, incomplete bowel evacuation, constipation, gas, bloating, fatigue, weakness, malaise and weight loss.
What were the results of the most recent research with IBS Aid?
A study completed at the University of Guelph, Canada, in 2003, substantiated the effectiveness of the IBS Aid formula in reducing or eliminating many to most of the common symptoms associated with IBS. The findings of this study resulted in a large scale, government funded clinical trial, begun in Great Britain in 2004, to verify the results from Canada. This recently completed study reached very similar conclusions about the efficacy of IBS Aid in the treatment of symptoms of IBS.
As evidenced by research and peoples’ personal testimonies, IBS Aid frequently outperformed many expensive prescription and over-the-counter medicines currently used to reduce the symptoms of IBS or chronic gastrointestinal distress. It has been very effective in controlling the symptoms of IBS and restoring a normal and healthy lifestyle in most people who use it.
Is IBS Aid safe to use?
IBS Aid’s active ingredients are identical to those which your body uses to fight disease, infection, and malignancies, it is very safe to use and has shown no harmful side effects when used as directed. In fact, these same ingredients are so safe that they have been widely used to make infant formulas more like mother’s milk which strengthens the baby’s immune system. Today, almost all infant mother’s milk replacement formulas contain these active ingredients; they are listed on the label as “Nucleotides”. Also, IBS Aid is suitable for vegetarians and is gluten-free.
How do I use IBS Aid?
IBS Aid comes in capsule form. Begin by taking four (4) capsules daily for 30 days. Many people begin to notice marked improvement within a very short time. If you feel sufficiently recovered after one month, continue on 2 capsules daily. Take with meals, as this helps to remind you to eat regularly.
Can anyone with IBS take IBS Aid?
Since IBS Aid accelerates and intensifies natural immune response and tissue repair, people who have autoimmune disease or have had organ transplants should not take it. Also, IBS Aid should not be taken by people with Gout or during pregnancy without consulting a Health Care professional.
