Agiobulk® normalises bowel movement in people with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), diarrhoea, diverticulosis and constipation.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder that affects the large intestine (gut) and changes how the gut works. 1, 2 IBS is a functional gastrointestinal disorder characterised by stomach pain and discomfort. It is also associated with changes in bowel habits which includes diarrhoea or constipation, and sometimes alternating bouts of the these. 1, 2

Constipation is experienced as persistently difficult, infrequent or incomplete passing of stools. 3 It affects up to 27 % of adults, with women being 2 to 3 times more likely to have constipation than men. 3, 4

More than 35 % of women experience constipation at some point during their pregnancy. 5  This may be due to the hormone progesterone that causes decreased muscle tone and slows the movement of the digestive system. A change in diet and decreased physical activity can also cause constipation. 6

Constipation is also common side effect of several medications such as pain medication, loop diuretics, iron supplements and calcium channel blockers. 3
