What Are Best Supplements for IBS?

Greetings! Eric Bakker, naturopath from New Zealand. Thanks for checking out this video in the Irritable Bowel Syndrome series. If this is the first video that you’ve seen in the series, please be sure to check out the other videos. There’s about seven or eight videos in the series, so it’s well worth you checking them all out.

This video, we’re going to talk about the best supplementation for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. As I mentioned, if you haven’t seen the videos previously, go check them out, especially the one “What is IBS?” and “Causes of IBS.” Then you’ll understand more about why I’m recommending the supplements that I do.

It’s true that around 75 to 80 percent of people with IBS have got some kind of a gut dysfunction that’s quite major. And a lot of people that we see have got SIBO or Candida or a parasite problem. They actually have some kind of a trigger – some kind of a pathogen or bug. You can’t really call Candida a pathogen or a lot of bacteria because they live in harmony in our gut. But, for one or many different reasons, this balance can become disturbed. You can get an overgrowth, and that overgrowth can even lead to infection, and that infection can often lead to inflammation. That inflammation can really irritate the bowel quite a lot.

Many people take things like turmeric or ginger, different anti-inflammatories to work on this pathway called a COX-2 inhibitor to reduce that inflammatory response. It makes more sense to me to assess the gut and eradicate any overgrowth, rather than to primarily deal with inflammation to reduce the pain you get in the bowel. I think the best supplements to take are the ones that help to get the balance back again of the bacteria in the gut to start with. That help to curb any Candida overgrowth and help to eliminate and wipe out parasites in the bowel.

For that reason, I created my CanXida range of products. I did not only create the CanXida products for Candida. You may see the word CanXida and think Candida, but CanXida is perfect for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. There are three products in the CanXida range, CanXida Remove, CanXida Restore, CanXida Rebuild. Those are the three main ones, which I think will be important for you if you have IBS or Irritable Bowel Syndrome. They’re also excellent for people with IBD, or Inflammatory Bowel Disease, which I’ll create some videos in that series as well.

What we want to achieve with Irritable Bowel Syndrome and supplementation, we want to achieve a microbial balance. We want to eradicate stuff that’s not supposed to be there in large numbers. We want to improve the beneficial bacteria. We want to get those counts up. We want to facilitate or assist and help the stomach to work more efficiently. The pancreas, the small intestine. We want foods to be able to be broken down properly, so they can ferment further down in the gut and stop creating things like gas, bloating and pain.

Many people have issues with food intolerances with IBS. Meaning, they have an enzymatic issue – they can’t break disaccharides down properly. This is why I created CanXida Restore to be very efficient, containing multiple enzymes that work on different kinds of carbohydrates. Some work on the short chains, some will work on the long chains. Taking CanXida Restore will give you significant improvement and help to reduce pain, gas and bloating.

The CanXida Remove will eradicate and help to get rid of a lot of different bugs in the body. It’s been used very successful with people in about 40 different countries. We’re getting incredibly good reviews with IBS patients right now on that product.

The CanXida Rebuild is a multi-vitamin I created with eight different herbs in it, which is going to inhibit microbes. It’s a perfect supplement to take one per day on a very long term basis of 12 months. It’s going to help to give the cells in the body nutrition when they’re under stress from Irritable Bowel Syndrome. When there’s inflammation. When you’ve got issues with enzymes for example not breaking food down properly and resolving them.

The Rebuild and the Restore work particularly well together. Remove, Restore, Rebuild is the triad of products that I recommend for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Check it out at CanXida.com. Thanks for tuning in. We’re going to do another video now on foods to eat for IBS. Catch up with you then.
