I have been taking Symprove for just over 3 weeks and at first i was disappointed as even up until a few days ago there was no improvement and i felt i had wasted a lot of money.
However, in the last few days, ther has been a definate improvement. My extreme stomach cramps, pains and trapped wind have become less of an issue and my appetite has gone from one bowl of soup & half a roll per day to feeling constantly wanting to eat which is good as i was losing weight quickly.
Over 20 years on PPI's and a recent spell of antibiotics (which led to me being off work) must have just about wiped out any good bacteria in me whatsoever which is probably why it has taken a while to start making a difference.
My IBS pains were getting so severe that i was coming home from work almost on a weekly basis which led to many meetings with the HR department.
Years of appointments with doctors and gastroenterologists and every test under the sun had led to nothing, including freeze dried probiotics.
I almost laughed when my gastroenterologist suggested Symprove but after 24 days of the recommended 90 day test, i am convinced that there has been improvement which no other treatment or drug has done and i already feel more confident about eating out and spending days out etc.
I'm not saying the i won't have bad days but i would strongly urge anybody with diagnosed IBS, stomach cramps or wind etc to please, please give it a go.
Add to this that the mango & passionfruit is delicious and a refreshing way to start the day, you'd be a fool not to try it.
I'll be giving it the 90 days and if it continues then i shall carry on with it.
It does work out very expensive, but as i said to my family, if it makes me feel better then it'll be worth every penny because i was in severe pain from the moment i woke until the moment i went to sleep and this had started from childhood and gradually got worse.
Just so happy i was recommended it.
