What are Colpermin IBS Relief Capsules?
Colpermin IBS Relief Capsules are a treatment that works to provide relief for the effects of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). They work by reducing the effects of spasms and cramps in the large bowel. This will reduce pain and discomfort felt in the bowel and allow gas that may make you feel bloated to leave the body.
What causes IBS?
IBS is a long-term condition that can affect anyone though it first develops between the age of 20-30. It is said that IBS affects 1 in 5 people. The exact cause of IBS is unknown, but it is believed that the condition is caused by problems with the digestive system and increased sensitivity. The symptoms produced by IBS are as a result of food moving through the digestive system either too quickly or too slowly. This causes symptoms such as constipation or diarrhoea.
Who are these capsules suitable for?
These capsules are suitable to be used by adults and children aged 15 and over who are suffering from the effects of pain caused by IBS.
