How do you treat a problem that has not just one, or two or even three different symptoms, but a whole myriad of them? When the symptoms range from constipation, diarrhoea, bloating, cramping, excessive flatulence and general abdominal pain you may soon find your medicine cupboard resembles a chemist shop.

Fortunately there is now a single supplement which deals with all the symptoms of IBS, and it is actually a specific strain of bacteria called Lactobacillus plantarum - otherwise known as L Plantarum In fact, L Plantarum is the only probiotic that has been shown in research to alleviate the symptoms of IBS.

At Elixir we have had excellent results with this particular supplement, and no wonder as one study found that 95% of patients receiving L Plantarum over a four week period showed significant improvements in all IBS related symptoms including bloating, constipation and diarrhea - and the majority found it worked within four days.

L Plantarum has been shown to adhere to the intestinal wall, forming a physical barrier against harmful bacteria and at the same time increasing the production of fuel for intestinal cells. In fact, L Plantarum helps to maintain a healthy heart, can help lowering cholesterol levels and helps boost your immune system at the gut level. However, for IBS sufferers it has been found to be so specifically helpful that in most cases using just this one supplement has resulted in great improvement in their condition. At the same time it is very safe, even during pregnancy and breastfeeding, and may be taken long term for as long as required.

We have therefore found that L Plantarum is the single most effective supplement you can use for IBS, which can at times be debilitating to say the least. Life doesn't have to be a pain in the backside!
