The probiotic supplement Colon Friendly combines 4 microbial strains with benefits recognized by numerous scientific studies. This supplement is designed to ensure the microorganisms survive as far as your intestinal microbiota so that they deliver the maximum benefits for intestinal comfort. Colon Friendly is particularly beneficial if you suffer from irritable bowel syndrome or other recurring intestinal problems (1-3).

What is in Colon Friendly? What Benefits Does it Offer?

The new formulation of Colon Friendly combines 4 strains of microorganisms specially selected for their characteristics and synergistic capacity:

  • Saccharomyces cerevisiae;
  • Bifidobacterium longum infantis;
  • Bifidobacterium longum longum;
  • And Lactobacillus acidophilus.

Saccharomyces cerevisiae

The microorganism Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a yeast used by Egyptians, Babylonians, and Celts to make bread, beer, kefir…

So, unlike other ingredients in Colon Friendly, Saccharomyces cerevisiae is a yeast rather than a type of bacteria. In fact, these single-celled microscopic fungi offer a dual advantage over bacteria:

  • They are more resistant in respect of antibiotics and stomach and bile acidity;
  • They act more vigorously to help colonize the lower intestinal tract.

Studies have shown that taking Saccharomyces cerevisiae helps with the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (4) by relieving abdominal pain, intestinal discomfort, and bloating.

Bifidobacterium longum infantis

Bifidobacterium longum infantis is a sub-species of Bifidobacterium longum, a type of beneficial lactic bacteria found in the human gut. Its name comes from the Latin prefix bifidus (cleft), which refers to its Y shape.

It is one of the first bacteria to colonize the intestinal tract of a newborn baby.

Bifidobacterium longum infantis is known for its ability to inhibit rotavirus infection of cell lines. It is due to this property that it is able to provide relief from diarrhea and constipation (5-6). Infantis also helps combat other typical IBS symptoms: stomach ache, bloating, gas... (7-8).

Bifidobacterium longum longum

Bifidobacterium longum longum is a second sub-species of Bifidobacterium longum.

As another lactic acid bacteria, it is also considered a 'friendly' bacteria for the intestinal tract. In particular, it maximizes the ability of the intestinal mucosa to capture water from stools.

Bifidobacterium longum longum is known for its ability to relieve IBS symptoms, as well as for its benefits for immune defenses (9).

Lactobacillus acidophilus

The strain Lactobacillus acidophilus is undoubtedly one of the best known bacteria. This beneficial, non-mobile microorganism is found in milk, miso, sauerkraut, kefir, wine, etc. It is also responsible for the slightly sour taste of yogurt.

It is found naturally in the human digestive system, in oral and intestinal mucosa. In the gut, Lactobacillus acidophilus helps break down food and facilitate absorption of vitamin K. It also encourages the growth of other healthy bacteria, such as the previously-mentioned bifidobacterium.

Above all, Lactobacillus acidophilus is known for helping to reduce various symptoms of IBS (intestinal pain, bloating, too frequent bowel movements, diarrhea...) (10-11).

In short, taking Colon Friendly is a natural, safe, and effective way of helping to reduce intestinal discomfort. In particular, this probiotic helps prevent or relieve intestinal problems without causing any side-effects. Taking Colon Friendly is particularly recommended if you suffer regularly from intestinal problems, especially IBS.

How Should Colon Friendly be Taken?

Colon Friendly capsules should preferably be taken in the morning on an empty stomach, for a period of two months, repeating the course regularly.

Supplementing with Colon Friendly may be especially beneficial following a course of antibiotics. Whilst very important for combating bacterial infections, antibiotics have the disadvantage of destroying certain 'good' bacteria, which upsets gut flora equilibrium. The beneficial bacteria provided by Colon Friendly helps restore that balance.

Why does the Gut Microbiota Need Probiotics?

The intestinal tract is a complex ecosystem that hosts almost 100 trillion microorganisms (that is 10 times the number of cells in the human body). Within this microbiota are multiple strains, some of which are neutral, some others good, and some others bad. The latter are said to be 'pathogenic' when they increase to such an extent as to cause disease.

The good strains meanwhile, benefit various of the body's functions:

  • Energy production via fermentation of undigested carbohydrates;
  • Bile acid metabolism and sterol metabolism;
  • Synthesis of certain vitamins – B group vitamins, vitamin K, etc.

It is therefore vital to maintain a good balance between these various microorganisms, which is precisely where probiotics come in.

The field of probiotics is constantly developing as new scientific discoveries emerge. Each new strain investigated has its own specific field of activity, thus opening new paths and continually expanding probiotic applications in the area of health and well-being.

What Exactly is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)?

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is characterized by recurring episodes of intestinal discomfort (bloating, flatulence, abdominal pain...), diarrhea, and/or constipation. It is also known as spastic or irritable colon, or mucous colitis.

More women than men suffer from this intestinal oversensitivity, with 2 to 3 women affected for every man (12). So far, there is no effective treatment for IBS, but adopting certain dietary habits will help reduce the frequency and intensity of attacks:

  • Eat balanced meals;
  • Do not eat too quickly;
  • Drink plenty of water;
  • Identify the foods that exacerbate your symptoms; for some, it means avoiding FODMAP carbohydrates (in peaches, pears, fresh cheese...), while for others, it is foods high in insoluble fiber (tomatoes, peppers, radishes, etc.). (13) ;
  • Health professionals generally also recommend taking probiotics as a source of 'good bacteria’ for the gut (14-15). Colon Friendly represents an excellent option for helping to prevent and relieve episodes of IBS.

Causes

The causes of irritable bowel syndrome are not yet understood. Current research indicates that most sufferers of irritable bowel syndrome symptoms are in their late teens to early 40s. Women are twice as likely to develop the condition than men. Also, it is not uncommon for multiple family members to be diagnosed with the condition.

Taking an IBS supplement may be beneficial for those at higher risk of IBS, such as:

  • People with a family history of IBS;
  • Sufferers of anxiety and emotional distress;
  • People with food intolerances;
  • People with a history of physical, emotional, or sexual abuse;
  • Sufferers of severe digestive tract infections.

Researchers already know that anyone who falls into the above groups is more likely to develop the condition. Furthermore, everyone has specific triggers, such as certain foods, medications, or emotional stress.

Anyone looking to take a colon supplement for their IBS may wonder which other factors lead to IBS. Researchers have identified extra-sensitive nerves in the GI tract, brain-gut dysfunction, and dysmotility in the GI muscles as some factors resulting in IBS.

Symptoms

Colon probiotics can support your body in fighting a range of common IBS symptoms, such as:

  • Abdominal pain;
  • Bloating;
  • Hard/loose bowel movements;
  • Diarrhea/constipation;
  • Excess gas;
  • Whitish goo in your stool.

IBS capsules are not a silver bullet, but Colon Friendly may offer support for IBS sufferers. Women may also experience more severe symptoms coinciding with their periods, making IBS capsules a potential support mechanism for this patient group.

4 More Reasons to Choose Colon Friendly

In addition, Colon Friendly from SuperSmart:

  • Is gluten-free and lactose-free;
  • Is non-GMO and nanoparticle-free;
  • Is suitable for vegetarians and vegans;
  • Its gastro-resistant DR caps™ have been specially designed to protect their contents from stomach acids so that the microorganisms reach the gut flora in perfect shape. These capsules also protect the microorganisms from moisture throughout their shelf life. Indeed, these exceptional advances earned DR caps™ first prize in the New Plant, Process, and Technology category awarded by the prestigious journal 'Nutraceutical Business and Technology (NBT) Magazine.'

Synergistic Supplements for Gut Health

In addition to Colon Friendly, we also recommend the benefits of fenugreek, a small, leguminous plant which helps protect the intestinal mucosa from irritation and inflammation (16). Our formulation Digestive Enzymes contains fenugreek, aniseed, and ginger, along with a range of enzymes (protease, amylase, diastase, invertase, lipase...) – all perfect compounds for helping to prevent intestinal discomfort.

Another plant equally known for its benefits for the intestinal tract is turmeric. This yellow-orange colored root from India contains active ingredients called curcuminoids which are thought to be largely responsible for turmeric's benefits. It facilitates digestion, supports the immune system, has antioxidant properties, etc. So, when you are looking for a turmeric supplement to normalize your gut health, make sure you choose one with a high curcuminoid content such as Natural Curcuma, standardized to 95% curcuminoids. This supplement offers valuable, additional support if you suffer from IBS (17-19).

Colon Probiotics Side Effects

Before adding probiotic capsules for IBS to your diet, you must consider whether a colon probiotic supplement is right for you.

Current scientific research reveals that there is little chance of serious side effects from consuming an IBS probiotic supplement as part of your daily diet. Like all supplements, it is strongly recommended that you look up the studies and anecdotal evidence for this colon supplement.

Contact your doctor to confirm that these probiotic colon support capsules will not interfere with any prescription medications you might be taking. Monitor the side effects and stop taking this supplement if you experience uncomfortable side effects.

Always stick to the recommended daily dosage for your colon supplement to mitigate your chances of experiencing side effects.
