General information on gut health
Gastro-intestinal problems are common and are often associated with a wide variety of symptoms. Iberogast has a very broad range of actions so provides a comprehensive and holistic approach. Iberogast is a liquid which makes it easy for the whole family to use, including children. Evidence from numerous clinical studies supports Iberogast’s safe and effective use.
A lack of dietary fibre can also contribute to some of these gastro-intestinal symptoms. To increase fibre intake some people take dietary fibre supplements, but some of these products can increase feelings of bloating and other symptoms. The insoluble fibre in Agiofibe and Agiolax is a convenient and simple way to increase dietary fibre and helps improve gut health without causing bloating. These clinically proven products are also available from Flordis.
If symptoms persist consult your health care professional.
