What is CanPrev Digestion & IBS?
CanPrev Digestion & IBS is a supplement which contains a variety of natural ingredients that are designed to reduce the onset of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) symptoms. The ingredients reduce both cramps and diarrhea associated IBS and bloating and constipation-associated IBS. In this review, we have a look at this supplement and its ingredients to determine if it is the ideal supplement for IBS Support.
- Cynara scolymus leaf extract
- Angelica archangelica root
- Peppermint leaf extract
The supplement uses a variety of plant compounds which have natural antioxidant, prebiotic or digestive effects. The Quercetin, Angelica archangelica root and Curcumin all have strong antioxidant properties. Antioxidants remove oxygen radicals from cells and tissues. Oxygen radicals, also known as free radicals, cause inflammation and tissue damage. Through scientific research, this has been highlighted as one of the contributors to IBS symptoms.
L-Glutamine is an amino acid which acts in the hippocampus of the brain. Scientific research has found that in patients with IBS, there is an imbalance of glutamine in the hippocampus which leads to increased stress and therefore increased symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
Cynara scolymus leaf extract is an important compound for regulating the population of bacteria in the gut. It is known as a prebiotic substance which means that it shifts the bacteria population towards having more beneficial bacteria, which should, therefore, improve digestion. Peppermint has been implicated in reducing spasms in the bowel by acting on the smooth muscles. Bromelain is an enzyme which breaks down many forms of protein. Protein can sometimes be difficult to digest especially for people who have IBS, so this should reduce the stress on the gastrointestinal tract.
The manufacturer recommends taking three capsules two times a day. For the best results, the capsules should be taken with a high fiber meal.
The manufacturer does not sell the product directly through their website, but rather entrusts this role to third-party retailers. From a reliable third-party website, the price per bottle appears to be around $35 which excludes shipping and taxes. Various retailers may offer a discount for buying in bulk but the manufacturer does not.
Possible Side Effects
Allergic reactions, nausea and vomiting have been reported with the use of this product. If the symptoms occur, stop use of the product immediately. Any person taking chronic medication, especially anticoagulants, should consult a physician before the use of this product. Pregnant and breastfeeding women are cautioned to consult a healthcare professional too before using this product.
CanPrev Digestion & IBS are produced in Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) certified laboratories and are tested by third-party laboratories to ensure quality. Despite this, the manufacturer seems to not offer any guarantee on their product which means that if customers are unsatisfied, they will not receive a refund. This finding concerns us because we could not find any customer reviews on this product so its effectiveness cannot be independently verified.
CanPrev Digestion & IBS – The Bottom Line
The all natural products in the supplement appear to be well considered. The supplement is also offered at a fairly reasonable price. When we compare these to supplements of a similar nature, we do find this product to be lacking though. Firstly, it is missing probiotic strains of bacteria which are quite useful in the treatment of IBS symptoms. Secondly, there is no guarantee for this product. We could also not find any customer reviews. With all these considerations in mind, we have serious doubts about the effectiveness of this product.
