Listen to your gut: a closer look at digestive symptoms

If you're experiencing unwelcome functional digestive symptoms, you're not alone. Many people suffer from symptoms including abdominal pain, cramps, feeling 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.

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).
