What Is Irritable Bowel Syndrome? Can CBD help?

Irritable Bowel Syndrome, or IBS, is a chronic condition involving recurrent abdominal pain, cramping, bloating, gas, diarrhea, and/or constipation. It’s often associated with stress, depression, anxiety, or previous intestinal infection. Some foods, such as alcohol, chocolate, coffee, sugar and dairy products, can also trigger attacks. About 10 to 15% of people have IBS.

Studies show that 20 mg+ of CBD 1-4 times a day may help IBS sufferers by relieving the unpleasant symptoms and allowing the body to regain a state of homeostasis, or natural balance. It does this by slowing down intestinal motility (movement) and reducing inflammation. Studies on the use of Turmeric for IBS sufferers show that the active ingredient in Turmeric, curcuma longa, may also reduce inflammation, aid digestion and further slow intestinal motility.

In combination with dietary changes, herbal and other supplements, CBD with Turmeric may over time provide lasting relief. Our NOVA formula provides. .8 mg of CBD in Turmeric per DROP.

If you suffer from IBS, you might benefit from a 1 month trial of NOVA with GUT HEALTH — a potent tincture combining peppermint, fennel, llanten and other cooling, calming herbs for gut relief.
