Key Benefits

  • Works Fast - 3 in 4 patients reported beneficial effects within 2 hours¹
  • Works Broad…. helps manage abdominal discomfort, abdominal bloating or distension, discomfort at evacuation, and BM urgency, common symptoms associated with IBS²
  • Helps normalize the digestive system, which enables proper digestion of food and enhances absorption of nutrients³
  • IBgard® utilizes SST® (Site-Specific Targeting) technology which minimizes the potential for heartburn and anal burning, common side effects among older, oil-filled delivery technologies for peppermint oil²
  • IBgard® SST® technology delivers microspheres of peppermint oil (in a solid state),predominantly in the small intestine, where it spreads out in a “broad brush” fashion for more distal delivery i.e., delivery in the lower gut (small intestine) over a 3 to 4-hour period⁴
