The following  review is for a product called IBS Support. IBS support is a dietary supplement designed to manage medically diagnosed Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). The manufacturer claims that this product is able to decrease the symptoms of IBS, support natural bowel function, and promote healthy digestion and healthy bacterial flora. It contains probiotics that have been clinically proven to reduce abdominal pain and flatulence within four weeks.


The main ingredient in this product is Lactobacillus  Plantarum. The manufacturer claims that each capsule contains 20 billion Lactobacillus  Plantarum organisms. This organism is a certain kind of bacteria that is usually found in a number of fermented food products, anaerobic organic matter and in human saliva. It has one of the largest genomes recognized amongst the lactic acid bacteria. Once in your stomach, Lactobacillus Plantarum forms a healthy wall in your colon to keep harmful bacteria from going through the lining of your bowels and penetrating your blood stream.


Ethical Nutrients IBS Support is intended for people over five years of age. The recommended dose is one capsule daily for mild cases, and one capsule twice a day for severe cases, or as advised by a healthcare practitioner.

Possible Side Effects

You may experience some bloating from taking this supplement, due to Lactobacillus  Plantarum. You are advised to consult with a healthcare provider if the condition does not change after taking this supplement. We noticed that IBS Support needs to be stored in the fridge. We are concerned that it might be harmful to health if you forget to put it in the fridge.


IBS Support can be purchased online from pharmacies and Health Food stores. The price ranges between $21.99 and $27.50 for 30 capsules, and between $54.95 and $66.95 for 90 capsules. You would need to shop around to find a cheap deal, as there is a huge difference between prices charged by retailers. Discounts are available from some of the retailers.
You can also purchase these supplements over the counter as well if you wish.


We searched through the entire manufacturer’s website and the retailers’ websites, and we could not find any information relating to guarantee or return policy. This is a concerning for a product that seems so promising. The lack of guarantee indicates that the manufacturer is not confident with their product.

Our IBS Support Review – Conclusion

Ethical Nutrients IBS Support contains 20 billion organisms that are known to be good probiotics that prevent harmful bacteria from penetrating the lining of your stomach. It has been clinically proven that probiotics help manage IBS. However, we are concerned about this supplement because we noticed that it needs to be stored in the fridge, which means that individuals that do not have a fridge are already excluded. It also means that when there is a power failure or if you forget your supplements outside the fridge, they will go off, wasting all your money. The manufacturer has not indicated how long IBS Support can stay out of the fridge for, or if it can even stay for a short while.  This is even worse when the manufacturer has no money-back guarantee to offer you because you have no protection whatsoever. With so many IBS products on the market, it is better to go for a product that is supported by a strong manufacturer’s guarantee and one that does not need to be stored in the fridge.
