Hi Jean!I heard about Seacure from a flyer that I received in the mail. I did some searching on the internet and found the company that manufactures it. I contacted them, for my mother and cousin who suffer from IBS, because I figured a natural alternative to relieve any problem is better than a drug. The company, Proper Nutrition, told me that they have been receiving a lot of success stories from IBS sufferers taking Seacure and that a study is currently underway. My mom's and my cousin's IBS symptoms have been alleviated and they have so much more energy since taking this product. I actually stumbled across this IBS group yesterday while looking for more info on IBS and marshmallow root and I thought that Seacure might be of some interest to other IBS sufferers because if I suffered from this problem, I certainly would prefer an all natural product to medication.
Delia -- Yes, this got recommended to me almost a year ago and I ordered a bottle. It's awfully expensive -- $42 or something (was it for two months? Don't remember). I don't think I was much helped by it, although I was new to IBS and gradually, my symptoms became less drastic as the months went on. The principle is that the finely-micronized amino acids from the fresh water white fish can actually get to places in the intestinal tract where they can repair the damaged lining from diarrhea. They gave it to babies in Uruguay for years and it did work for them, and I believe the man who is manufacturing it here is totally sincere. However, when Flux (our board science-buff) came on and said it was about the same as taking powdered milk, I decided it wasn't worth the expense. P.S. Delia, I just saw your second post. One thing it did for me was give me a terrific amount of energy, which was absolutely needed at the time because I had lost so much weight. Hmm-- might not be a bad idea, now. It has a certain ingredient which is also said to be good for bipolar disorder in it, too. [This message has been edited by Persistance (edited 03-31-2000).]
Hi Delila - I also tried Seacure. Unfortunatly I wasn't consistant in taking it so I didn't see a difference. But I did notice more energy when I took it. I would like to try it again but it's too expensive for me right now! The smell is just awful so you will have to put it in the freezer to be able to take it. Think of raw fish x100!
Flux meant "You can get the same benefits from powdered milk." After I posted it, he went to have a look at their website and that was his educated opinion. You might try posting a notice to him, like, "Flux, what do you think of Seacure?" He's pretty sharp.To get rid of the smell, all you have to do is take the three (or six) pills you are taking the next day and leave them out on the counter all night. That will do it.
