IBGARD®

IBgard® is the #1 gastroenterologist recommended1 medical food for the dietary management of IBS in the US.

IBS can be triggered by food, stress, environment, infections, and genetic predisposition2. People who have IBS often experience distressing symptoms at various times, at varying intensities, including some or all of the following: ​

  • Abdominal pain
  • Discomfort or cramping
  • Bloating or gas
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Bouts of diarrhea interrupted by constipation
  • Urgency of bowel movement
  • Sense of an incomplete bowel movement and pain during bowel movements

The IBgard®  Difference 
IBgard® utilizes breakthrough science via patented SST® (Site-Specific Targeting) technology to deliver peppermint oil at the site of the disturbance, beyond the stomach. SST® minimizes the potential for heartburn, a common side effects among older, oil-filled peppermint delivery technologies3

IBgard® is designed to help to​

  • Normalize the digestion and absorption of food nutrients that have been compromised by IBS​
  • Manage the accompanying and often distressing group of symptoms of IBS.
  • Promote the bacterial balance in the small intestine.4

IBgard® works fast, long and strong1. Using IBgard®, 3 in 4 patients reported symptom relief within 2 hours.
