Every now and then we come across a product which polarizes the opinion of the team at IBS-Health. Equalactin certainly achieved the aforementioned polarisation.
Before we begin with our ‘does it work’ review, we must tell you about Equalactin. The product claims to be a remedy for a ‘nervous stomach’ or an ‘irritable bowel’.
It claims to achieve this by balancing the water in the gut. The claim is that IBS is caused by the fluids in the gut. This sounds like a perfectly reasonable idea, although it does appear to simplify an issue which we feel is a touch more complicated than that.
With that said, we always approach any product we try with an open mind, and we were very keen to try Equalactin.

So did Equalactin work ? Well yes, and no. As we stated at the start this product very much polarised the team. For some, it worked very well, in particular the IBS-d sufferers for others not noticeable effect.
We would state that this is the archetypal IBS product, either brilliant or pointless, with little inbetween. For that reason we were not overly enamoured by the claims that IBS is one thing and that this product can fix it, as that is not correct. If it stated that it may help those who have problems with liquid balance, then we feel it would attract a larger audience than at present.
Despite not being perfect we liked Equalactin. It may or not help, however it is unlikely to hurt you. Unlike many other products out there it will not break the bank, and therefore is a great product to try without worry. As with almost all IBS products it will not work for all, but it is certainly worth a try. The reviews on Amazon.com are very positive, and well worth reading should you contemplate purchasing this product.
