IBS affects between 25 and 45 million people in the United States and about 2 out of 3 IBS sufferers are female. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a disorder that affects the large intestine and is characterized by abdominal pain or discomfort as well as altered bowel movement. Symptoms include abdominal cramping, constipation, diarrhea, intestinal gas, bloating, nausea and fatigue.
Treatments for IBS include fiber supplements, laxatives, anti-diarrheal medications, anticholinergic medications and pain medications. Some Medications specifically for IBS are Alosetron, Eluxadoline, Rifaximin, Lubiprostone and Linaclotide.
Each of the prescribed medications contain negative side effects which include vomiting, bloody stool, upper respiratory tract infection, bronchitis, headache, dizziness, heart burn, joint and back pain as well as swelling in hands, feet and torso.
Clinical studies that link CBD for IBS have shown that CBD could help suppress nausea, promote a healthy appetite, reduce intestinal inflammation, regulate pain and alleviate symptoms of IBS. CBD can regulate various physiological functions via the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
Its most important function in IBS is how it works as an anti-inflammatory agent. CBD is an interesting compound because it can mediate reactive gliosis in the ECS without having any undesirable psychoactive effects. Our 1500mg AHS Tincture is perfect for people who suffer with IBS due to its anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties.
