I have terrible IBS-D and found this product a couple years ago. It is wonderful and helps with my IBS a lot. I use it in my yogurt in the morning and then later on with liquids. It is a little hard to dissolve but that is a small problem compared to the relief it provides. Heather's IBS products are really great and I would also recommend her Peppermint and Fennel teas too.
Works great, with no grit and no taste! I love it, and am happy I found it. Helps with IBS-D!
I've been suffering from IBS-D for ~20 years. This fiber has helped me a lot, it makes my bowel movements regular. Don't get me wrong, I still get flare ups occasionally but this fiber has definitely made my life 100x better. I take one teaspoon with water before going to bed.
I have suffered from IBS-D for many years. I have been using this powder sprinkled on my foods for a few days and was actually regular after day 1. There's is no taste so it's perfect on everything. Add it for everything I cook now to sneak fiber into my families diet. Foods that would send me running are no longer a problem.
I love this product. I have used it for about 8 months now and I can tell a difference in my IBS-D. If you follow the directions on how to gradually increase the dosage, you should avoid any typical "fiber" reaction like bloating or gas. I am up to 2 1/2 Tablespoons a day and it has relieved my tummy problems - it hasn't stopped the IBS, but certainly has slowed it down. You can also order this from Heather's on the internet, but I have found that Amazon is a little less expensive.
Can't even begin to describe the success I've had with Heather's! Having been blessed with Crohn's + IBS-D, I normally spend half my day running (literally) to the bathroom. At a heaping 1/2 tsp per day - in my morning hot tea and before bed in a glass of ice water, the improvement is nothing short of a miracle. I noticed gradual improvent over the first 3-4 days and then voila! One trip to the bathroom every morning and that's IT!! I will continue at 1/2 tsp to maintain unless and until I need to increase the amount. This fiber is life changing!!
This fiber is the only thing I've found that reliably keeps my IBS-D at bay. I've tried over-the-counter remedies, prescription meds, diet changes, food avoidance, etc. and nothing works like this tummy fiber to prevent IBS-D episodes before they happen. This is a very effective, preventative measure. In order for this to be effective, you must use it consistently. If I get lazy and take a few days off, then I can have intestinal troubles again. I've had IBS-D for 20+ years (since I was a kid) and nothing has worked better than this. I swear by it!
This is the only thing I've found that helps keep my IBS-D under control. If you've got IBS-D you know what a trial everyday can be. This has been a great help and I highly recommend it.
I love this stuff. I've been using it off and on for several years now. I have ibs-d and when I feel a flare upcoming on I put a spoonful of so in my instant oats in the morning and I'm not kidding after a day or two I am good to go. I've told many people about this including my gi dr.
After years of chronic issues with IBS-D that I would try to control with diet and probiotics, I finally have relief with adding Tummy Fiber to my regimen. Relief through diet helps but some days it seems every food causes issues. I take 1 tsp of Tummy fiber in the morning and at night and I've never in my life had this much success with an IBS self treatment.
No exaggeration, this completely cured my IBS-d within a week. I have a normal life now thanks to this product. Living with IBS is the absolute worst. You get anxiety about going anywhere ever, just in case you get "sick." I would never leave the house except for work and I would spend most of the day at work sick or crying and embarrassed. I would skip functions with friends because I was terrified of having diarrhea in public. It's gone now. I want to send a thank you card and a hug and flowers and everything I can think of to Heather or whoever made this product. It completely changed my life. It gave me a life! I have spent the last 4 years searching for anything to help, including changing my diet entirely. Now I just have this normal life and I can eat or drink whatever I want without getting sick. For me, it's a miracle cure. Thank you so much for giving me my life back.
I've searching for products which will help with the IBS-D rather have to take the medication the doctor prescribed. The medication only soothed the symptoms but do not really relieve it. With Heather's Tummy Fiber it slowly helped with the symptoms but still not completely control or stable. That's why I give it a 4 stars. It is tasteless and easy to consume either by liquid or add to moist food. Hopefully, when time goes by, my symptoms will be controlled. For anyone who has IBS-C or IBS-D condition, definitely has to try this product.
I have IBS-D and I tried the Fiber35 Acacia Fiber by RenewLife. I checked with RenewLife and they use both the Senegal and Royal fibers. I felt that their fiber didn't do that well, so I tried this. With Heather's, which is pure Senegal and is the higher grade (do the research and you'll see it is the highest grade), I notice that I do not have gas, I do not have immediate needs to go to the bathroom, and this stuff really helps soothe my stomach and GI system. Also, the fiber really helps to keep my blood sugar levels lower so I have found I do not crave sweets as much when I use this.
Heather's tummy fiber has helped my IBS-D more than anything else I've tried!! I gradually increased the dose until I found my perfect dose of 2 teaspoons twice a day. Now I have normal consistency bowel movements twice a day, sometimes only once! I can't say enough how grateful I am that I tried this fiber. I have not had any negative side effects whatsoever from this and I am very sensitive to fiber in my diet (I can't tolerate raw vegetables, nuts or high-fiber cereals) so I think there is something about the acacia senegal that really is special. Occasionally I do still have attacks if I am sleep deprived or stressed, etc but they are not as bad as before and don't happen as often. If you have IBS-D you have to try this fiber!
This Fiber has really helped me. It has worked better than anything I have tried for my IBS-D.
I had stomach issues (diarrhea) for months. Went to the doc and got a bunch of tests, doc said IBS-D and to take immodiuM (which didn't even work) I started taking this and finally it stopped. I also went to the Heather's website and started eating simple carbs with every meal instead of salad, and stopped drinking coffee, which probably helped. Anyway, I recommend this stuff. It will probably help you.
This product is fantastic! After suffering from IBS-D for more than 6 months, Heather's Tummy Tamers provided some relief of symptoms, but I still was not able to eat as I normally did before IBS-D. Finally, I tried taking Heather's Tummy Fiber and in less than 10 days, all symptoms were gone and I could eat my normal, healthy, high-fiber diet once again. It's the best!
these products are absolutely fantastic! the fiber and the teas are a godsend to IBS sufferers. I was cynical but decided to give it a try and I am amazed at the results. in 6 mos of using the fiber, once I was stabilized with the fiber and diet (took me only about 3 weeks), worked up to 3 tblspns daily as my comfort zone, I've only had like maybe 4 instances of IBS-D !! AND not "bad" events that kept me home that day. It's a natural product, not all chemicals as in a script, that you just need drink or sprinkle on your hot meals, and your good to go. It has made such a difference in my life.Do yourself a favor, try this, get stabilized, and you too will be thankful!
I've been using Heather's tummy fiber for only 4 days, and I am already feeling some relief from my IBS-D. I also highly recommend the peppermint tummy tea, it's very soothing and tastes wonderful. I haven't had any problems with the fiber dissolving, I simply add 1/2 tsp. to a little water, stir with a fork, wait, stir some more, and then add more water. It has almost NO flavor. A work friend recommended this product, and I'm very grateful that she did. She claims that it completely resolved her gas and bloating issues due to IBS.
I've been taking this for awhile but was on the fence about it.I have IBS-D badly but I've been reading a lot of reviews here and on Heathers web site and I learnt that people with D need to keep building up the amount you are taking Now while doing this your gut hurts but keep going I'm up to a tablespoon and a half and can now say its under control.
This is simply terrific for IBS, and I highly recommend it. I increased it gradually, and ended up using just one teaspoon every day in my smoothie, and that is all I need to stay normal (whatever that is for a healthy person). I had IBS-D with really bad flare ups, but so far no more flare ups! With this and the usage of other vitamins and supplements, and not eating any FOD-MAPS (yes I am on a highly restricted diet), I was able to get better without drugs.
tried this for my wife who suffers from IBS-D. she has noted a decrease in her post-prandial diarrhea since taking this product, and now makes sure she takes it daily.
Amazing product. I have ibs-d and this has helped significantly!
This product has been a life saver for me. I had symptoms of IBS-D and with my gallbladder being removed, I was limited on medicine I could take. This product actually showed great results even within the first day of taking it. I am very selective about what supplements I take and this supplement has been wonderful
This product has dramatically helped my IBS-D. It's worth a try, if you've been suffering with IBS issues.
I’ve been taking this probiotic for about a month now. I take half the dose which is one pill (20billion cultures) only becauss it is expensive and I need the bottle to last as I am on a tight budget. I’ve noticed a few things while taking this probiotic. Reduced heartburn and stomach upset, reduced GI discomfort in general and much less diarrhea than I am usually forced to deal with. I have IBS-D and colitis. This hasn’t been a cure for me, but if I am sure to take this before I eat breakfast in the morning and follow the rest of my vitamin routine (I also use BioSchwartz Vitamin D3 5000ui and just ordered Turmeric/Curcumin to try), while also being mindful of what I eat (I have lots of food allergies), then my day goes much better than it would without these things. I think it is too soon to tell how well this probiotic will work for me long term. After my next bottle I’m going to take some time off and see if the changes will last or if this will be something I’ll need for life. I also want to try the full dose of two pills and see if it improves things even more. It’ll be a slow process, but I’m confident in this product and I would recommend anyone with GI problems to at least buy one bottle and give it a try. I also had no ill side effects whatsoever from this product.
I love this for IBS-D and other digestive issues.
Another good IBS remedy. It really seems to calm down the overactivity associated with IBS-D, and yet you don't end up with IBS-C.
Most home remedies are so much BS... But i gotta say, tumeric has changed my life. I had IBS-D that was awful, i was on prescription meds with little relief. This stuff works!! No more problems and all the inflammation from UC/IBS is gone! Praise GOD!
I have been using this for about a year for my IBS-D. It does seem to work well on the inflammatory factor or the IBS-D.
I bought Dr. Whitaker's Berberine 500 mg Supplement for Blood Sugar Support, 90 Capsules originally and HATED them. The taste was awful and they were huge so a pain to swallow quickly. They also caused me some major stomach issues, whether I took them prior or after a meal. I even stopped taking the Berberine only capsules due to the difficult to swallow, taste and stomach issues, that I thought I was going to have to resort to going on Metformin. I found these tablets while looking online for other natural supplements to help lower blood sugar level. I had read cinnamon helps lower blood sugar, so when I found this I figured it was a two in one deal. These are sooooo much better than just the regular Berberine. They smell and taste of cinnamon, not awful metal taste. They are also more tablets than capsules, again making it easier to swallow. I haven't had my 3 month check up to see whether they are helping with my overall blood sugar levels (A1C), but I can't see how they wouldn't. Also I haven't had any stomach issues like I had with the original Berberine only capsules. I also added Biberry supplements with these as they are also to help lower blood sugar and help with IBS-D. I've had no side effects taking these two before or after a meal.
I purchased it in hopes that it would help control the neuropathic pain in my arm, which isn't it's main selling point, I don't think. But after nearly five years, I'll try anything that appears reasonable. I also have IBS-D, and I think this product has helped somewhat to ease those problems On the very definite upside, I purchased one for myself and one for my sister-in-law, who has arthritis, and she reports that it has provided her a lot of pain relief. And considering its anti-oxidative properties and that this seems to be an overall good product, I plan to continue.
This product has been amazing for my knee pain and more. I hike alot and I'm over 60 and was having to cut back on my outdoor adventures until I started taking this. I started my older dogs on a pet tumeric after seeing what it did for me. It doesn't happen overnight but if you give it 4 weeks you will notice pain has gone. Also helped drastically with my IBS-D.
I was suffering from "IBS" what I thought was Candida for over a year. Did all the allergy testing and other tests including stool test and everything came back as normal or only some irritants. No one could seem to help. One doc gave me antibiotics for a month and it helped for a few weeks then my symptoms came back. My symptoms were IBS-D and stools not forming correctly, itchiness, not being able to get clean after going, urgent bowels, never knew when it was coming. It forced me to become a hermit at home. I decided to try this after doing some research about parasites/worms and thought, hey what do I have to lose. Well I'm SO glad I did! After one full treatment, ALL my symptoms were GONE. After suffering for almost 2 years! I had a yeast smell in my hands and when I would sweat that made me think it was Candida overgrowth, but the smell is completely gone now! My bowels are back to normal! I cannot believe it really. I would highly recommend it to anyone with similar problems. Or anyone dealing with "Candida" "Leaky Gut" it might just be a parasite! This stuff actually made me constipated and I felt miserable on it, but after your done I felt awesome. Back to my old self. It's worth a shot!
