The Digestive System

The digestive system is an important part of your body. It's a group of organs that work together to take in nutrients, vitamins, minerals and water, and convert your food into energy. The digestive system also gets rid of the waste your body cannot absorb.

But did you know that the digestive system is connected to other important organs, including your brain? They're all interlinked, in what is sometimes referred to as the "gut brain axis". This means that the health of your gut can have an impact on your general wellbeing and your mood too!

What do people suffer from?

If you're experiencing unwelcome functional digestive symptoms, you're not alone. Many people suffer from symptoms including abdominal pain and cramps, feelings of fullness, bloating, gas, heartburn and nausea. Lifestyle changes and increased stress may be to blame.

Whilst functional digestive symptoms are often harmless, that doesn't change the fact that they can be distressing and bothersome, especially if they last for some time. Symptoms are often interlinked and people can experience a range of different symptoms at the same time. It’s no wonder people look for something to provide relief.

Is there a cure?

For some people, functional digestive symptoms can return frequently, or never completely disappear. Current treatments tend to focus reducing digestive symptoms, so patients can get back to their life.

It's important to know that symptoms are often interlinked and can occur at the same time. Some treatments just help relieve one specific symptom, meaning sufferers with more than one symptom need to combine different medications. Iberogast has a multi-targeted action to offer a holistic approach so as to work fast to provide effective relief from multiple digestive symptoms.

The complexity of the digestive system

The causes aren’t always known

It can be difficult to work out what's causing a particular functional digestive symptom. The truth is, not all causes have been uncovered. But we do know that genetics can play a part, as well as environmental factors like stress, emotional upset, travel, dietary changes, and medication.

Several malfunctions in the gastrointestinal tract have been linked to functional digestive issues:

  • Stomach muscles that are moving too quickly or too slowly
  • Over-active stomach muscles
  • Stomach nerves that are too sensitive
  • Inflammation
  • Increased gas formation

If you’ve been experiencing a range of functional digestive symptoms over a long period of time, you should consult your doctor. You may be suffering from a functional digestive disorder, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) or Functional Indigestion (Dyspepsia).

Common functional digestive symptoms can include:

If you’re experiencing a range of digestive symptoms over a longer period of time, you might be suffering from a functional digestive disorder, make sure you visit your doctor.

What is IBS?

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a well-known digestive syndrome. Symptoms of IBS can be very uncomfortable, and can stop sufferers from enjoying their day. Symptoms include abdominal pain, bloating, gas, stomach cramps and passing stools irregularly.

It’s not yet fully known what causes IBS, and there’s currently no cure. Treatments tend to focus on easing the symptoms of the syndrome. Iberogast brings fast-acting, effective relief from many IBS symptoms.

What is Functional Dyspepsia or indigestion?

Like IBS, Functional Dyspepsia (FD) is one of the most common digestive syndromes. Sometimes described as a "nervous stomach", FD can have a severe impact on sufferers' wellbeing. Symptoms include abdominal cramps, epigastric pain, feelings of fullness, nausea, vomiting and bloating.

The cause of FD isn't yet known, but psychological factors are thought to play a big part. Diagnosis can be tricky, and there's a lot of overlap between FD and IBS. There's also no cure just yet, but there are things sufferers can do to manage their symptoms, such as taking Iberogast for fast-acting, effective relief.
