- IBS supplement with benefits for reducing the frequency and intensity of abdominal pain, flatulence and bloating.
- Normalises intestinal transit.
- Prevents the side-effects of antibiotic treatment.
Colon Friendly contains the strain of probiotic yeast - Saccharomyces cerevisiae CNCM I-3856 (ibSium), which constitutes a natural, safe and effective solution to pain and intestinal discomfort, with no side-effects.
The intestinal tract is a complex ecosystem which is home to almost 100 trillion microorganisms - that's more than ten times the number of cells in the human body. Within this microbiota, are found multiple strains – some neutral, some good and some bad. When numbers of bad strains increase to the point of causing disease, they are known as ‘pathogenic' strains. The good strains, on the other hand, have benefits for various bodily functions:
It is therefore important to maintain a harmonious balance in the intestinal tract between all these microorganisms, and it is precisely here that probiotics intervene.
Probiotics are constantly being developed and enhanced by the latest scientific findings. Each new strain studied has a specific field of action, thus opening up new horizons and further expanding applications in the area of health and well-being. One recently-discovered strain offers hope to those who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS or functional colopathy), which is predominantly characterised by chronic abdominal pain, alternating diarrhoea and constipation and intractable intestinal discomfort.
Present in Colon Friendly, is the strain of probiotic yeast - Saccharomyces cerevisiae CNCM I-3856 (ibSium) – isolated by French researchers at internationally-recognised company Lesaffre. It was patented and registered with the Collection Nationale de Cultures de Micro-organismes. It differs from the better-known probiotic yeast Saccaromyces boulardii (see this product) in that it benefits both microflora and intestinal well-being, the first Saccharomyces strain to act in this specific way.
Of the hundreds of beneficial probiotic bacteria discovered, only these two strains of yeast have been identified. These unicellular microscopic fungi are neither bacteria nor viruses and present a two-fold advantage:
Involving a total of 1761 subjects, the two clinical studies conducted on Saccharomyces cerevisiae have clearly demonstrated that it:
Taking 500mg a day resulted in a significant improvement in intestinal discomfort in 96% of cases, with 77% of subjects reporting improvements in their symptoms during the first two weeks of treatment. For optimal preservation and efficacy, this special strain is encapsulated in DRcaps.
Protecting against stomach acidity, this technology ensures the four billion active microorganisms in each capsule reach their destination in the intestines. Capsules should preferably be taken in the morning on an empty stomach, for a two month-period, repeating this course of treatment regularly. Colon Friendly is guaranteed free from gluten, lactose and GMOs, and can be safely taken by vegetarians.

For some years now, they’ve been causing a real buzz. Probiotics - the new wonder remedy for digestive upsets – also seem to offer endless other benefits for human health.
Taking probiotics is a natural way of reducing infection, fighting inflammation and improving digestion. But how long should you take them for?
More and more of you are asking us this question. Do probiotics need to be kept in the fridge in order to survive? And if so, does sending these same probiotics through the post mean they might die en route?
