IBS-D stands for diarrhea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome. It is a misunderstood health condition within the medical community. With 25% of patients admitting that IBS-D stops them from enjoying life fully, this condition poses serious challenges for those who suffer from it. Symptoms include diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, gas and bloating.
The impact on quality of life is immeasurable: unpredictable interference with daily life, limited sexual activity and loss of productivity. It is estimated that 18% of Canadians live with this condition and 58% of them are seeking solutions to improve their quality of life, but their options are limited and the results are often ineffective.
Early research suggests that the gut microbiota of those with IBS is different from those without the condition; however, research has yet to establish a “fingerprint” of the IBS microbiota. Knowing this, it is reasonable to expect that the trillions of microbes that live in the gut are an important root cause of IBS symptoms.
Bio-K+ IBS Control positively alters the microbiotic composition by increasing the population of beneficial bacteria, which can help regulate bowel movement, digestion and assimilation resulting in reduced abdominal pain, improved bowel frequency and stool consistency and overall better quality of life.
This technology ensures bacteria pass through the stomach safely, delivering maximum benefits to the intestines—where it counts.
Once ingested, the capsule travels safely through the stomach.
Bacteria are released from the capsule once it reaches the intestines, the main site of action.
Bacteria are reactivated and ready to reach their full potential throughout the digestive tract.
