After reading US National Library of Medicine article: "Herbal medicines for the management of irritable bowel syndrome: A comprehensive review"
I was curious to explore some of the herbs/elixirs and wondered if anyone had heard of and, or tried some of them?
- Iberogast (STW 5) - https://www.iberogas...u/en/iberogast/
- Padma Lax (Not in the US) - https://padma.ch/en/...ucts/padma-lax/

i tried iberogast but unfortunately it did nothing for me. but that's me. other people might have success with it.
these are just my own thoughts. for expert medical advice please contact a health care professional.

Maybe not everyone is just suitable for such herbs. For each individual. Personally, I do not use herbs, but food supplements, vitamins to improve blood circulation

These are the ones I've had the most success with:
Cape Aloe is a stimulant laxative (which some sources say canbe toxic, but I've never had a problem). It's the most effective stimulant laxative I've ever taken.
MotilPro contains 5HTP, ginger, and B6. It's sort of like a herbal version of Zelnorm or Motegrity because it produces serotonin which promotes motility in the gut.
Lemon juice, 1/4 a cup added to water. Prob the cheapest option, so definitely worth a try. Use a straw if you drink it frequently, since it's bad for teeth enamel.
CBD: Helped a lot with pain, but made constipation worse.

I've been taking Dr. Schulze's Intestinal Formula # 1 daily for over 5 years now. It's pricey, but it definitely works.
Note: I also take 3 tablespoons full of apple cider vinegar (diluted with water) every morning whenever I wake up. It's nasty tasting, but it helps.
