Orlando, FL — July 28, 2015 — Irritable bowel syndrome is characterized by the irregular contractions of the large intestine, which results in a bloated feeling, cramps, and diarrhea. This disease can be painful, but it does not permanently damage the intestine. There are medications available for the condition, including a powerful natural alternative.

Research finds turmeric beneficial for irritable bowel syndrome. This condition can cause symptoms such as mucus in the stool, frequent urge to empty bowels, and achieving pain relief after doing so. Stress, anxiety, depression, or low serotonin levels are the typical cause of the condition.

There are certain food items that can trigger the bouts of IBS such as chocolates, dairy products, carbonated beverages, caffeine, chemical food additives, alcohol, and fatty foods. The good news is that there are treatment options such as acupuncture, drug therapy, herbal remedies, homeopathy, dietary change, and nutritional supplements, which are believed to help fight the condition.

“Turmeric is an ancient, medicinal spice widely used in kitchens of homes and restaurants. It has also been used for thousands of years as a medicine,” said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.

According to experts, foods that cause gas should be avoided. There are also home remedies like deep breathing, exercise, and hot baths that can ease the symptoms of IBS. While this is not a severe medical condition, it can negatively affect the life of a sufferer. The condition forces sufferers to limit social outings, miss work or travel due to diarrhea, constipation, or pain in the abdominal region.

In the studies at the University of Reading, UK, the researchers assessed the effects of the spice on the symptoms of individuals who don’t suffer from any health problem but IBS. There were 500 subjects in the study, and 207 of them received turmeric for 8 weeks. It was found that the participants who used turmeric experienced a reduction of IBS symptoms by almost 53% after the treatment. Two-thirds of the volunteers experienced abdominal pain reduction and overall improvement in bowel movements.

There were also studies that investigated the effects of turmeric on IBS and other gastrointestinal disorders. Turmeric has a phytochemical called curcumin, which is believed to have powerful therapeutic benefits. In an animal-based study, it was found that curcumin has successfully treated a variety of intestinal disorders like abdominal cramps, IBS, and diarrhea.

Curcumin supplements can easily be purchased nowadays. Experts recommend the use of curcumin with BioPerine, which is a black pepper extract and a bioavailability enhancing ingredient. When combined with BioPerine, curcumin’s absorption inside the body increases (http://amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-BioPerine-Extract-Vegetarian/dp/B00VSVKJ8I/).
