The following trials were conducted by an IBS sufferer who had, developed their symptoms as a result of continued Antibiotic use. The net result was a very poor digestive system, which required a major overhaul.
As with all products that we trial, the probiotics were used as per the manufacturers instructions. With all trials the period relates to the time taken to use one of the products being tested.
We always state, and will state again that this is the experience of one sufferers, any IBS trial to be accurate should be conducted across the wide range of IBS symptoms, not just the experience of one sufferer.
With that said, we feel that any review we give, will be based upon the knowledge we have gathered regarding the relative validity of any product for IBS sufferers at large. We would never dismiss a product based upon the experience of one sufferer, and will always give a product a fair assessment.
Product Description :
PA key to good digestive health and overall well-being is the maintenance of a healthy bacterial balance in the body. Poor diet, stress, alcohol and antibiotics can upset the gastrointestinal tract by destroying good bacteria and allowing undesirable bacteria to multiply.
HealthAid ImmuProbio is a unique formulation containing a superior blend of 50 billion viable bacterial strains, fortified with a probiotic (FOS), to help replenish the body's good bacteria and maintain a healthy immune system.
HealthAid uses special acid & bile resistant strains, which prevent the stomach juices destroying the ingredients before they reach the intestines, ensuring their purity and potency.
With fifty billion cultures these probiotics come in at the top end of those available. While there are some which offer more cultures their use would be fairly limited, and if you you did need probiotics of that strength you may be better advised seeking a ‘fecal transplant’.
Back to ‘ImmuProbio’, we were very impressed with this product, while not cheap they certainly did seem to deliver and it is worth remembering that with some probiotics you will experience a false economy by buying cheap or substandard products. ImmuProbio would seem to work very well for severe sufferers, and for those who had taken a course of antibiotics.
We would question whether it would be worth spending the money if you suffer from occasional flare ups, or if your symptoms are mild, as there are very good cost effective alternatives out there. However, if you have taken a course of antibiotics or suffer severe IBS-d then these may well assist your day to day living.
Overall a very good product, quite specific in its application, however as with all IBS products they work for some and not others. That said we would happily recommend them.
HealthAid ImmuProbio (50 billion) 4.5/5
