What is New Roots Herbal IBS Urgency?
The following review is for a product called New Roots Herbal IBS Urgency, a dietary supplement that is designed to provide support to gastrointestinal and intestinal health. IBS Urgency reduces diarrhea in individuals with irritable bowel syndrome. It contains five probiotic strains with proline-rich polypeptides from colostrum, that are important for well-balanced intestines. The manufacturer claims that the capsules of this supplement are water-based, which makes them survive in harsh stomach acids to provide the best benefits to your stomach health.
- Bifidobacterium longum ssp. infantis
- Bifidobacterium longum ssp. longum

- Lactobacillus rhamnosus
- Bovine colostrum
Other ingredients: Potato starch, ascorbic acid, vegetable magnesium stearate, inulin and arabinogalactan in a capsule with vegetable carbohydrate gum, purified water and water-based enteric coating.
The five probiotic strains contained in this supplement play different roles in supporting stomach health. For instance, Lactobacillus Plantarum forms a healthy barrier in your intestine to keep harmful bacteria from penetrating through the lining of your intestines and going through your bloodstream. Lactobacillus acidophilus on the other hand can help prevent diarrhea. Some studies have indicated taking a supplement with different probiotics can cause negative effects in your stomach because they compete with each other. This is concerning because there is about five different probiotics in this supplement.
The recommended dose for adults is two capsules daily or as advised by a healthcare provider. If your are on antibiotics, it is advised that you take this supplement 2-3 hours before or after you take them.

New Roots Herbal IBS Urgency Review – The Bottom Line
New Roots Herbal IBS Urgency contains ingredients that are known to be effective in managing IBS and other stomach related illnesses. Probiotics provide the stomach with protection from bad bacteria and therefore improve its health. The price of this product is reasonable, which is helpful for individuals who do not have much money. However, we are concerned that the manufacturer claims that this supplement is side-effect free, yet they caution of many different possible side effects. Research has indicated that different species of Lactobacillus can have negative effects in your stomach if and when they are consumed at the same time, and this product has more than one species of Lactobacillus. Furthermore, absence of guarantee gives us an impression that the manufacturer lacks confidence on their product. It is a risk to buy a product that is not backed by the manufacturer’s guarantee, especially with the possible side effects and negative impacts it might have on your health. We recommend that you look for a product that will give you money-back guarantee to ensure your protection.
