IBS Aid - Does it Work?-Review

What is IBS Aid?

In this review of IBS Aid, we explore the facts about the product. IBS stands for Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and the product, IBS Aid is abbreviated from Intestinal Balance Supplement Aid which the manufacturer claims will lessen or eliminate the symptoms linked to IBS such as diarrhea, gas and bloating to name but a few. This supplement is said to allow the promotion of the growth of the villi found inside the intestinal lining of the small intestine, as well as the restoration of healthy bacteria (lactobacilli) found in the large intestine.

Ingredients & How It Works

  • Yeast Extracts
  • Nucleotides/RNA(Ribonucleic acid)
  • Maltodextrin
  • Inositol

The RNA(Ribonucleic acid) is made from extracts of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (brewer’s yeast) which promotes rapid cell production in the digestive system.Maltodextrin helps to aid stool volume and consistency while Inositol improves circulation.

A warning is given to people who suffer from yeast allergies, gout, autoimmune diseases as well as organ transplant recipients and pregnant and nursing mothers. They are unable to use this product without consulting their doctors. A note below the nutritional information states that the RNA nucleotides contain purine and pyrimidines including uridine. Purine and pyrimidines are nitrogenous bases (molecules) which bind together to form a nucleotide. Uridine is simply a nucleotide which has been combined with sugar.

Daily Serving

Initially, the recommended dosage is 2 capsules per day for 30 days. Should an improvement be experienced after a month’s usage, the daily dosage may be lowered to 1 capsule taken with meals. Although the measurement specifies 390 mg, the daily value percentage of all ingredients are not determined on the label. Since the release of IBS Aid, the concentration has been increased multiple times, which leads us to think that the dosage might be too low.

The Cost

One can buy IBS Aid online. The product is available for purchase at a price of $34.95 per bottle which contains 30 capsules. No discounts are offered for this product.


According to the website, the terms on which the refund is eligible is confusing as it first states that a refund is permitted within the first 30 days after the date of purchase, then that product is non-refundable or replaceable after 30 days from the shipping date. You may return the portion of the product which was not used for a refund that excludes the costs of handling and shipping.

Our Review Summary Of IBS

The key ingredients which are formulated in IBS Aid have been found inside the body and are responsible for improved health, combating infections and disease as well as the balance of healthy bacteria in the digestive tract. IBS Aid has had positive feedback, however, the fact that supplemented RNA promotes the lengthening and increased surface area of villi was deduced from a study which was deducted from an animal’s digestive tract.
A serious matter of concern is the level of uric acid which the purine containing RNA might influence should the product be taken long term. The excess uric acid that is not excreted may leave the body susceptible to Hyperuricemia. The product also contains the additive Maltodextrin which is a food additive that is unsafe for diabetics and proven to be harmful to healthy gut bacteria. We would think twice before recommending this product to anyone suffering from IBS.
