Feeling stressed with sensitive stomach and do you often suffer from abdominal pain, bloating, distension, flatulence with constipation or diarrhea that goes on not just the whole day, but continues to the next day, with no signs of letting up? It is socially embarrassing and you feel self-conscious, anxious and depressed. Eventually, the constant bloating will lead to a bad body image and affect your entire lifestyle. You don't enjoy the food as you used to, fearing that the particular food will add to the bloating, distension and flatulence, as well as the alteration in the stool. Reports show that activities are restricted up to 139 days of the year, and up to 40 days of absenteeism are recorded.
Medically, this condition is called Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and you are definitely not alone. Over 800 million people suffer from IBS. This gastrointestinal syndrome is a collection of symptoms mentioned above.
IBS can affect anyone, and up to as high as 21% of adults are affected in certain regions. More women (70%) than men (30%) suffer IBS and all ages are affected, from teenagers to the elderly. However, IBS is most commonly found in the age groups of 30-50 years old. Many people don't realise that this is a condition, with only 30% of sufferers consulting their doctors about this condition. There are many different remedies in the market, but only 8% of patients are satisfied with their particular remedy. The syndrome affects patients both physically and psychologically, impairing the patient's ability to function emotionally. IBS happens all over the world with an average of 15.6% of Malaysians suffers from IBS.
The Prime ProGIGuard recently hosted a dynamic and memorable event where scientific and clinically sound results supported the use of Saccharomyces cerevisiae CNCM I-3856 in abdominal symptomatic relief such as pain and generalised discomfort.
One way to combat IBS is to consume probiotics, a product readily available in the market. However, The Prime ProGIGuard is the only yeast probiotic available in the market, that can get rid of bad bacteria and bad yeast, especially harmful yeast that can enter the bloodstream.
The Prime ProGIGuard is safe and fast acting, and has strong scientific support and clinically proven efficacy. Anyone from children aged two years and above can consume it. It can relieve gastrointestinal symptoms and is suitable for anyone suffering from indigestion, food poisoning, food allergies or intolerance, constipation, diarrhoea, trapped wind and bloating, overeating, anxiety, depression, stomach flu or even menstrual pain. Studies have shown that sufferers of gastrointestinal pain and discomfort experience a significant reduction in symptoms from the first week onwards of consumption especially within the first two weeks or 15 days of consumption.
Saccharomyces cerevisiae CNCM I-3856 secretes saccharolytic enzymes and assists intestinal floral in generating short-chain fatty acids that accelerates the bowel movements. It also acts as a visceral analgesic, increasing resistance to pain by up to 40%, an anti-inflammatory to combat intestinal inflammation, helps rebalance the bacteria in the gut and reduce the harmful bacteria Enterococcus, E.coli and C.albicans. The result is decreased inflammation, bloating, pain, discomfort, constipation among relief of the other symptoms of IBS.
The recommended dosage is 2 capsules of 250mg before meal, once a day.
I realised that I felt less bloated and can easily pass motion after 1 and half week's consumption. I suffer from bloated tummy especially during menstruation and trapped wind and constipation during travels. However, after consuming The Prime ProGIGuard, I felt my tummy less bloated during the time of the month. I also brought the capsules during my recent travel and I felt that going to toilet was so much easier. I'm pretty sure some of you understand that when we go to travel, our food consumption is not the same during our normal days and may suffer from constipation/indigestion. So, to me, this was a super great supplement for travels. I am even thinking about bringing this during my 2 week travel to Europe soon so that I can enjoy my holiday without worrying about gastrointestinal symptoms =)
The only thing is that I must remember to take the capsules before meal. The first few days when I started consuming it, I forgot and just went straight for meal HAHA..It's a routine to follow but one that you will not regret.
