Springing Into Less IBS Symptoms

Springing Into Less IBS Symptoms

Good morning Sisters! I hope you all are having a fabulous weekend! Today is the first day of SPRING! It’s cold and rainy here in North Carolina, not feeling very spring-y! At least we have warmer weather in the forecast to look forward to this week 🙂 Sometimes it’s nice to have a cold, rainy Sunday. It forces us to relax, right?! On a side note, I can’t believe it’s already Spring! 2016 is already flying by. When I think of Spring, I think of new life, and new beginnings. So naturally, I thought that I would share with you some new products that may help your IBS this Spring & hopefully for Springs to come!


Today’s blog is dedicated to the new products that I have discovered thus far in 2016, which could potentially alleviate your IBS symptoms, along with other syndromes and illnesses. Some have been tried by myself, and some by other IBS Sisters. As you know, every IBS case is different, and different things work for different Sisters! So, let’s take a look at the list!

1. Forever Living Aloe Vera Gel

Forever Living Aloe Vera Gel, 33.8 fl oz, $18.66 plus tax/shipping, 13 day supply

A fellow IBS Sister, Holly, swears by Forever Living Aloe Vera Gel! Holly reached out to me to see if I have ever tried aloe vera gel, which I had, and I told her it didn’t really do anything for my IBS. She brought to my attention that most aloe vera products are extremely diluted, so you don’t receive the full health benefits. Holly suffered from PCOS, skin issues, and IBS. She had PCOS since she could remember, with acne and stomach issues being her biggest two problematic symptoms. She was living a healthy lifestyle by eating healthy and exercising, but it was still impossible to keep her symptoms at bay. After Holly’s second child, she did the Forever Living Clean9 cleanse, a nutritionally endorsed safe cleanse. After this cleanse, she swears she never felt better! Her stomach bloating and sharp shooting stomach pains eased, and her skin began to clear up. She continued to drink the gel every morning, 80ml on an empty stomach, and has continued this practice for the past two years. Holly will never go without her Forever Living Aloe Vera Gel from here on out! She drinks the Cranberry Nectar Aloe Vera Gel, which has added Vitamin C. Forever Living Aloe Vera is made with inner leaf and is the only of it’s kind that is cold pressed to keep it in it’s most natural state, like drinking the plant. Holly loved Forever Living products so much, she even researched the Propolis Aloe Cream for her son’s dry skin conditions, and it helped him tremendously! Holly has a number of customers with previous severe IBS symptoms and regularly drink the gel to alleviate symptoms. Holly swears that Forever Living Aloe Vera Gel changed her life and is a Godsend!

2. Plexus Worldwide 

Triplex Combo + Accelerator+ + Shipping $170.86, one month supply

After hearing many positive reviews about Plexus, I decided to give it a try. You may have heard of the “Pink Drink”, but I learned that Plexus is much more than that! I did buy Plexus to help with the weight that I have gained from hypothyroidism (cheaper than buying all new clothes, right?!), but also decided to try the products because of the Bio Cleanse and ProBio5, which is referred to as the Triplex Combo. I also threw in the Accelerator+ (weight loss booster) product, since me and the hubby are going on a tropical vacation in a month 🙂 The Accelerator+ also contains iodine, which is proven to boost thyroid levels. There are many testimonials of women finding relief in all of these products who have PCOS, IBS, Hypothyroidism, Diabetes, and many more illnesses. Here is a quote from a Triplex Plexus consumer: “This combo aids in gut health, digestion, fat burning, energy, curbing cravings, oxygenating the body, removing toxins, promotes healthy glucose levels, blood pressure and healthy lipids, aids as a mood booster…. I could go on.”


As far as weight loss is concerned, Plexus stabilizes your blood sugar, which in turn cuts sugar cravings, too! The Plexus ProBio5 is a probiotic that consists of 5 extra strength probiotics, added enzymes, intestinal flora, B6, grape seed extract, and Vitamin C that supports the breaking down of hostile organisms that negatively impact your health. The BioCleanse cleanses your body from the inside out, eliminating candida and yeast overgrowth. All Plexus products are plant based, natural, and do not contain artificial sweeteners or dyes.

I know this is A LOT of information to take in, and I have only been using Plexus for one week. After taking Plexus for one month, I will do a review and let you know what I personally think about the products! If you’re interested in ordering Plexus, leave a comment on the blog and I will help you receive 15% before April 15th!


3. Triphala

Himalaya Pure Herbs Triphala, $12.00, two month supply

As if you don’t already spend enough money and time on your vitamins, here is just one more I wanted to share with you! This product sounds like it would be a better fit for an IBS-C Sister like myself.

I first read about Triphala in a health magazine, and was very impressed. Literally meaning “three fruits”, triphala is a traditional Ayurvedic herbal formulation consisting of three fruits native to the Indian subcontinent: Amalaki (Emblica officinalis), Bibhitaki (Terminalia belerica) and Haritaki (Terminalia chebula). Triphala is used for immune system stimulation, improvement of digestion, relief of constipation, gastrointestinal tract cleansing, relief of gas, treatment of diabetes, and treatment of eye disease.

I purchased the Himalaya Pure Herbs brand of Triphala on sale at Whole Foods.

Not only can Triphala benefit in preventing IBS flares, it can also speed up the recovery process of a flare up that you’re already experiencing. With it being relatively inexpensive, go ahead and give it a try and let me know what you think!


       A Healthy Gut is a Happy Gut!


I hope that you found this information helpful, Sister! If there’s something that you’ve tried in this list and worked for you, let us know in the comments! Hopefully something in this post will help your IBS this Spring, and if so, be sure to let us know! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
