IBS and Calcium
How is Calcium related with IBS?
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) stems from irregularity in intestinal tract muscle contractions,
often resulting in symptoms like abdominal pain, nausea, indigestion, bloating, diarrhea, and constipation.
Diarrhea-type IBS, or IBS-D, is characterized by loose stool, excessive gas, and frequent sudden urges to pass bowel movement.
Many of these symptoms make life with IBS-D difficult and stressful to deal with. The addition of a calcium supplement
to the daily diet can help alleviate these issues as calcium acts as a natural binding body in the intestines.
Surplus calcium passing through the intestinal tract is known to bind with excess fluids, helping to produce a more solid bowel movement.
Constipation-type IBS, or IBS-C, is often enhanced by insoluble calcium supplements consisting of calcium carbonate, coral calcium and other similar compounds. Totally CALCIUM®, unlike insoluble calcium tablets, provides a 100% soluble calcium solution which can enhance the softening of solid mass and help relieve constipation. The addition of Totally CALCIUM® may help ease the symptoms of both IBS-C and IBS-D, leading the way to a happier, healthier lifestyle.
