Late last year I was introduced to a brand called Alflorex*. Now I know what you’re thinking… ‘What on earth is Alflorex’ - Alflorex is a natural precision biotic gluten free food supplement which comes in the form of small capsules. These capsules has been proven to support individuals suffering with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

You also may ask yourself.. ‘What is IBS?’ Well, Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a collection of symptoms such as cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, diarrhoea, and constipation. Most people with IBS can ease symptoms with changes in diet, medicine, and stress relief. For some people, IBS symptoms are more severe. They may get in the way of going to work or traveling, even traveling short distances.

Talking about IBS is quite embarrassing because lets face it, its not a conversation starter thats for sure. My IBS was triggered by stress, when I was in school, I was both nervous and stressed about settling down and just getting through the first few years of school because I never really enjoyed school. After a few years I became a lot more comfortable with my school life and noticed my nerves had settled and so had my IBS very slightly. 

Fast forward a few years, to university and work life = STRESS, which in turn mean’t my IBS was playing up again. I would suffer with cramping, abdominal pains and constipation, which is not a great feeling. I tried to change my diet by not eating bread and rice but this became increasingly hard to carry on because I would be too lazy to cook my own food and eat whatever was ready at home and I love my food too much so it was hard to substitute some foods.
Just before I started taking Alflorex, I had just come off Antibiotics and was directed to the Alflorex stand by Boots Pharmacy, they advised me to start taking this to help my wellbeing. I had been given samples of Alflorex at an event but was quite sceptical at the time about whether it would work or not. But since taking Alflorex I’ve noticed that these little tablets have really worked for me and I’ve seen a real difference in my wellbeing and less bloating through the day. 

Since taking Alflorex I've had such positive results and would recommend Alflorex. There has been so much research on Alflorex which you can read more about on their website -

Have you heard of Alflorex before? What are your thoughts?
