Your Digestive Symptoms

Your digestive health can have a big impact on how you feel day to day. So if you're experiencing uncomfortable digestive symptoms, don't ignore them.

The Digestive System

The digestive system is an important part of your body. It's a group of organs that work together to take in nutrients, vitamins, minerals and water, and convert your food into energy. The digestive system also gets rid of the waste your system doesn't absorb.

What do people suffer from?

If you're experiencing unwelcome digestive symptoms, you're not alone. More and more people are suffering from symptoms including abdominal pain, cramps, feelings of fullness, heaviness, bloating, flatulence and nausea. Lifestyle changes and increased stress may be to blame for this rise.

Whilst digestive symptoms are often harmless, that doesn't change the fact that they can be extremely distressing and bothersome, especially if they last for some time. Symptoms are often interlinked and people often experience a range of different symptoms at the same time. It's no wonder sufferers are often desperately looking for relief.

The causes aren't always known

It can be difficult to work out what's causing a particular digestive symptom. The truth is, not all causes have been uncovered. But we do know that genetics can play a part, as well as environmental factors like stress, emotional upset, travel, dietary changes, and medication.

Several malfunctions in the gastrointestinal tract have been linked to digestive issues17:

  • Stomach muscles that are moving too quickly or too slowly
  • Over-active stomach muscles
  • Stomach nerves that are too sensitive
  • Inflammation
  • Increased gas formation

If you're experiencing a range of digestive symptoms over a longer period of time, make sure you visit your doctor. You may be suffering from a digestive syndrome, such as Functional Dyspepsia (FD) and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

Is there a cure?

For many people, digestive symptoms return frequently, or never completely disappear. Current treatments tend to focus on eliminating or reducing digestive symptoms, so patients can get back to their life.

It's important to know that symptoms are often interlinked, occurring at the same time. Most treatments just target one specific symptom, meaning sufferers have to combine different medications. But by targeting a range of different causes at the same time, Iberogast® offers a holistic approach, giving you fast, effective relief from multiple digestive symptoms1,13.

Functional gastrointestinal disorders

If you're experiencing a range of digestive symptoms over a longer period of time, you may be suffering from a functional gastrointestinal disorder. Make sure you visit a doctor or consult a pharmacist.

What's IBS?

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a well known digestive syndrome. IBS can be very uncomfortable, and can stop sufferers from enjoying their day to day routine. Symptoms include abdominal pain, bloating, passing stools irregularly, and feeling like you still need to "go" once you've passed a stool.

It's not yet fully known what causes IBS, and there's currently no cure. Treatments tend to focus on easing the symptoms of the syndrome. Iberogast® brings fast, effective relief from many IBS symptoms1.

What's FDs?

Like IBS, Functional Dyspepsia (FD) is one of the most common digestive syndromes. Sometimes described as a "nervous stomach", FD can have a severe impact on sufferers' wellbeing. Symptoms include cramps, pain, feelings of fullness, nausea, vomiting and bloating.

The cause of FD isn't yet known, but psychological factors are thought to play a big part. Diagnosis can be tricky, and there's a lot of overlap between FD and IBS. There's also no cure just yet, but there are things sufferers can do to manage their symptoms, such as taking Iberogast® for fast, effective relief1.
