IBS-D Pack

£79.45

The IBS-D (diarrhoea) Pack comprises one bottle of Custom Probiotics CP-1 and one bottle of Lactoferrin Xtra.

Custom Probiotics CP-1 Adult Formula probiotic capsules

Our Custom Probiotics CP-1 formulation are available in capsules and contain around 98 billion bacteria per capsule at time of manufacture, verified by independent laboratory testing. This count is much higher than those claimed by most probiotic products on the market today.

Adult formulation CP-1 contains five superior tried and tested strains of acid resistant freeze-dried probiotic microorganisms These strains are L. Acidophilus, L.Rhamnosus,L. Plantarum, B. Lactis and B. Bifidum, and are most specifically helpful to the small and large intestines. To be effective we have found that a probiotic supplement should have a high bacterial count and a blend of different genera.

Custom Probiotics CP-1 represents exceptional value, as each billion bacteria costs 0.5p. This is compared to typical shop bought probiotics which may cost up to 20 times more per billion bacteria.

Lactoferrin Xtra

Lactoferrin is a natural defensive protein present in the body. Lactoferrin Xtra has three to four times the iron binding capability of standard Lactoferrin. Studies indicate that it is particularly superior to normal Lactoferrin in improving bone density and the repair of intestinal epithelial cells.In her book on the H5N1 virus, 'The Survivor's Guide to Bird Flu', Professor Jayney Goddard notes that Lactoferrin is very useful against influenza. She describes how Lactoferrin increases mucosal immunity, which is vital for resisting viruses, and reduces inflammation, which is one of the ways viruses cause such a problem to the body.

Description

For doctors, IBS can be challenging to diagnose, because tests often show no abnormalities even though symptoms are often all too real. As a result, a diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome is usually arrived at by process of elimination, if you will excuse the pun, after other disorders with similar but more serious symptoms–such as diverticulitis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, or intestinal parasites–have been ruled out.

The Rome III criteria (2006) for the diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome require that patients must have recurrent abdominal pain or discomfort at least 3 days per month during the previous 3 months that is associated with 2 or more of the following:

  • Relieved by defecation
  • Onset associated with a change in stool frequency
  • Onset associated with a change in stool form or appearance
Supporting symptoms include the following:
  • Altered stool frequency
  • Altered stool form
  • Altered stool passage (straining and/or urgency)
  • Mucorrhea
  • Abdominal bloating or subjective distention. Four bowel patterns may be seen with irritable bowel syndrome. These patterns include
  • IBS-D (diarrhoea predominant),
  • IBS-C (constipation predominant),
  • IBS-M (mixed diarrhea and constipation), and
  • IBS-A (alternating diarrhoea and constipation). The usefulness of these subtypes is debatable. Notably, within 1 year, 75% of patients change subtypes, and 29% switch between constipation-predominant IBS and diarrhoea-predominant IBS.
There is no inflammation of the bowel, yet the patient suffers a variety of symptoms. These can be varying degrees of abdominal pain from vague to excruciatingly sharp; alternating constipation to diarrhoea, watery stools, wind, bloating, nausea, sweats and a worsening of symptoms after eating a large meal, during or just before menstrual periods, or while under stress.
  • Abdominal pain typically occurs in the lower left abdominal quadrant, and is relieved by defecation or passage of wind
  • The patient may complain of a feeling of incomplete emptying of the bowel ‘rectal dissatisfaction’
  • Abdominal distension with a subjective sensation of bloating
  • Anxiety or depression is often present
  • Up to 20% of patients develop symptoms after a bout of infectious gastro-enteritis – ‘post infectious IBS’

While experts have suggested many potential causes for irritable bowel syndrome, no single cause has been established beyond a reasonable doubt. The list of possible culprits has ranged from parasitic infections and lactose intolerance, to food allergies and overuse of antibiotics.
