Hello -

This is a slightly technical article but well worth the read!

Although the etiology of IBS remains in part unknown, understanding the potential mechanisms has progressed rapidly over the years involving the gut microbiota, the gut-brain axis, the altered intestinal motility, the epithelial barrier, the immune system, the enteric nervous system, certain food antigens, and psychological and genetic factors.

Microbiota dysbiosis in IBS has now been recognized by the Rome Foundation as a plausible factor contributing to the disorder.

The involvement of the gut microenvironment in IBS symptoms has led to the publication of a range of studies that suggest antibiotics, prebiotics and probiotics may exert their therapeutic activity through their impact at the level of gut microbiota composition, microbial metabolism products - short-chain fatty acids - and gut barrier integrity.

And more about using prebiotics and probiotics to help IBS.

You are not alone.
