IBgard® Clinical Data
IBgard®, a novel, small-intestine-targeted delivery system of peppermint oil, results in significant improvement in severe and unbearable IBS symptom intensity.
Approximately 25% of patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) describe their symptoms as severe. Multiple items (mean=7) have been identified as contributing to IBS severity. The level of severity seems related to the number and intensity of these contributing factors. High severity is reflected by higher intensity and higher frequency of individual symptoms.
