Just wondering if it works for helping with IBS.

I take b12 , but don,t know as it helps be. I B guard helps me more than anything, along with a probiotic. These two really help.

Hi, I am so fed up of having to rush to toilet with diarrhoea, & not always getting there in time.

I’ve been like this for many years but it’s getting much worse as I’ve got older, I’m now 68 yrs. & have had many accidents during this time. I’m at my wits end as this is controlling my life. I am otherwise fit & healthy.

Gas but constipated

I used to have diarrhea quite often, but now I am almost always constipated. I have no idea how to deal with it. I eat 25g + of fibre each day and take Align. I have started taking Iberogast as I also have reflux issues, but nothing is working. I also have a lot of gas and get very bloated, pretty much all the time...
Restoralax does work, but often times too well and then I’m going multiple times a day!
Any ideas of how to fix this???? I would really appreciate any input!!
