What is IBS

IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) is a multi-symptomatic functional bowel disorder, which although considered to be relatively harmless is one of the world's most common diseases.

IBS affects almost 10-15% of the adult population around the world, whilst many people still remain undiagnosed and never seek medical help. The disorder is slightly more prevalent in women than in men and onsets usually before the age of 40. IBS is characterized by recurrence of symptoms in different parts of the gastrointestinal tract such as chronic abdominal pain, cramping, an upset stomach with diarrhea / constipation or alternating between the two, bloating, flatulence and hasty need to visit the toilet. This disorder can also affect young active people and is sometimes also called “stressed stomach” or “bloated stomach”. Regardless of being so prevalent, there is lack of both knowledge and effective treatment for IBS.

The diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome is usually determined by the physician based on the typical complaint pattern, medical history as well as the exclusion of other diseases.

What is PROIBS®

PROIBS® is a food for special medical purposes - for the dietary management of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). Problem with irregular gastrointestinal function is commonly referred to as IBS.

PROIBS® contains a plant extract called AVH200® which has successfully completed a randomized placebo study with around 70 people at the Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Sweden. Symptoms in adults with diagnosed IBS improved significantly with the dietary treatment of AVH200® compared to the placebo group. The diet supplemented with AVH200® reduced problems of discomfort and feeling of bloating.

PROIBS® containing AVH200®  is a very promising alternative for the dietary management of IBS. Further studies to support this treatment option are currently in progress.
