Starting Symprove and My IBS Symptoms Currently.



If I was to tell you that I spend a lot of my time in the toilet, thinking about the toilet, worrying about the toilet and running to the toilet what would you think? Would you think that I am being dramatic? Probably, but for those of us with IBS its just a regular day. In the past week I have had a flare most days. Not been as bloated as usual but I have been pretty scared to leave the house unless I am going somewhere where I know there will be a toilet. The mental health side of having IBS is that I spend so long thinking and worrying about toilets that it has taken over my life.

So, when the lovely people at Symprove got in touch and asked if I would like to try their product I jumped at the chance. Symprove is a water based multi-strain supplement and is the only product currently on the market that, in an independent study by the university college London, arrived at the gut in a live state, survived stomach acid transit and thrived in the target area of the gut.

I feel like I am almost at the end of my tether when it comes to IBS. I have tried to identify food triggers but some days dairy will be fine, other days the tiniest bit of milk will have me running to the loo faster than Usain Bolt. I wonder sometimes if we could utilise that durig the olympics you know? Just get a bunch of us with IBS and promise a toilet at the end of the 100m. I would win every time.

Anyway, I will keep you updated on how this journey goes! I am going to plan to do a weekly symptom diary :)
