The following review is for a product called IBGard for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), which is formulated for the management of IBS. It can help to improve the digestion and absorption of nutrients that have been inhibited by IBS symptoms like stomach pain, diarrhea, constipation, urgency of bowel movement and pain during bowel movement.
The manufacturer claims that this product is a number one recommended product for IBS, and that is is fast, reliable and gentle. Furthermore, they claim that in clinical trials IBgard showed to start working within 24 hours of use.
The main ingredient in product is peppermint oil. Each capsule contains 90mg of this oil. Various studies suggest that peppermint oil capsules allow the oil to penetrate the stomach and dissolves in the intestines, which relieves common issues that are related to IBS, such as bloating, abdominal pain and constipation. We are concerned, however that peppermint can cause heartburn and nausea.

IBGard for Irritable Bowel Syndrome Review– Conclusion
IBGard seem to be a promising product for managing IBS related symptoms, such as bloating, diarrhea and indigestion. Peppermint Oil that is contained in it is known to be effective in providing relief from these symptoms. However, the same peppermint oil could cause heartburn and nausea. Furthermore, there is no money-back guarantee on this product. This simply means that if you buy it and you do not see any results, you have lost your money without benefiting from the product. We were very concerned when we read the negative reviews on this product. Many customers who have used it experienced a terrible acid reflux from taking IBGard. Due to these reasons, we would like to recommend that you rather look for a product that will help relieve the symptoms without making other digestive issues worse. Also look for a product that is backed by the manufacturer’s guarantee to protect yourself and your money.
