Smart Naturals IBPlus Probiotic and Digestive Enzyme Supplement Review

Editor's Rating:

Smart Naturals IBPlus Probiotic and Digestive Enzyme Supplement is a combination supplement which contains a probiotic complex, a prebiotic complex and digestive enzymes. These complexes are designed to reduce the incidence of digestive distress or discomfort associated with the digestive system such as with food intolerance or Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). They do this by making the digestion of food much easier which places much less stress on your gut.

Ingredients

  • Lactobacillus acidophilus
  • Lactobacillus plantarum
  • Lactobacillus fermentum
  • Lactobacillus reuteri
  • Lactobacillus casei
  • Bifidobacterium infantis
  • Bifidobacterium breve
  • Bifidobacterium longum
  • Streptococcus thermophilus
  • Protease
  • Amylase
  • Lactase
  • Lipase
  • Inulin

The Lactobacillus species are a very important part of the normal flora in the intestine. As the name suggests they break down lactose, a sugar which is very difficult for some people to metabolize. The presence of the species will make the metabolism of lactose much easier, which place has less stress on the intestine leading to less onset of symptoms. The supplement also contains the enzyme lactase which also breaks down lactose.

The Bifidobacterium species have been shown to play a variety of roles in the human gastrointestinal tract. They are involved with the breakdown of complex sugars some of which humans cannot normally digest. Their effect is helped by the amylase enzyme.

Streptococcus thermophilus also breaks down lactose. The prebiotic inulin stimulates the growth of the natural bacteria in the gut and inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria. This leads to a better balance of the beneficial bacteria in the gut.

The remaining enzymes – protease and lipase break down proteins and fats respectively. Again this place is less stress on the intestine to digest all of the nutrients after the meal which reduces the chance of symptoms occurring.

Our Smart Naturals IBPlus Probiotic and Digestive Enzyme Supplement Review – Conclusion

The ingredients present in this product appeared to be well considered and they are offered at a reasonable price. It compares quite well to many of the products designed for similar results. Nonetheless, it falls slightly short because it does not contain any anti-inflammatory ingredients, which are also essential  for reducing IBS or food intolerance symptoms. There are also manufacturers which offer a discount for buying package deals which makes the long term use of their product much simpler and cheaper.
