Posted by Ann Maddox • June 28, 2018

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a condition associated with such symptoms as constipation, bloating, cramping, gas, and abdominal pain. It is unknown exactly what causes IBS, but according to the Mayo Clinic, there can be many different factors, including poor gastrointestinal nervous system signals, weaker or stronger contractions of the muscles inside the intestines and others. It is also added that certain foods, hormonal changes, periods of increased stress, and even certain bacteria can trigger the higher mentioned symptoms. Before trying to manage these symptoms, you are recommended to talk to your doctor. Kijimea IBS is a new product that promises to help you fight IBS issues. It is said to be a clinically proven dietary supplement that claims to deal with such unpleasant symptoms as diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, bloating and flatulence.

The company behind the product is called Kijimea Inc. and is based out of Toronto, Ontario. It was founded by Clemens Fischer who earned his doctorate in medicine and an MBA from Harvard University. The official website says that he has founded many other companies that were sold to pharmaceutical companies like Dermapharm, Novartis, and Perrigo. Being a product of German origin, Kijimea is currently made in Italy with the use of bacteria strain B. bifidum MIMBb75. It is claimed to be the only one in the world clinically proven to fight IBS symptoms effectively. It contains no sweeteners, preservatives, or flavoring agents. The manufacturer's website mentions that you will have to take two capsules at mealtime with enough water on a daily basis. The course of treatment usually takes four weeks. Can this supplement really reduce your IBS symptoms and improve your overall quality of life? Has it been clinically proven as claimed by the manufacturer? What about the ingredients in it? Let's talk about that in a second.

Does It Have Any Side Effects?

Even though the manufacturer of Kijimea IBS does not mention any potential side effects associated with its usage, it does not mean that the product is completely safe to use. Professionals claim that the supplement should only be used under medical supervision. There is special precaution for pregnant or breastfeeding women, since its impact is not studied for this category of people. Besides, the product has no interactions with other products, which may lead to potential side effects and adverse reactions. It isn't suitable for sensitive people who may experience allergic reactions. According to the manufacturer, Kijimea doesn't contain gluten, soy, lactose, egg, peanuts, milk, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, or wheat. The most common side effect for this probiotic is diarrhea and constipation. If it is mild it may pass within just a few days. But if your gut bacteria are unable to rebalance you may face the following side effects: bloating, gassiness, and distention.

There is a number of customer reviews for Kijimea IBS online. Amazon has given Kijimea's 14- and- 56-count packages an average rating of 3.7 stars, with the most common complaints referencing no results, experiencing side effects and high price. However, some customers cited reduced IBS symptoms. Let us take a look at the real customers' reviews left online.

"After seeing an article about Kijimea IBS in my local newspaper, I decided to give it a try and I bought it through my local Walgreens. I suffered from flatulence. Gastroenterologists failed to help me. This product brought me devastating effects. The first day I felt very sick. My left arm and hand were flushed. My bowel movements were constant and loose. I noticed no relief from flatulence and bloating. The second day, I got upset stomach, flatulence and bloating, anxiety, and even my hands were shaking. The third day, more symptoms appeared including dizziness and difficulty driving or walking properly. I stopped using the product, and within two days I came back to normal."

"I purchased one bottle of Kijimea and understood immediately that it was my fault. This product is ridiculously priced - $17:50 for a one-week supply (14 capsules). Owing to disability, I cannot work and I have a limited income. I was able to buy those just because I hoped that this product would help me. As a result, I felt zero relief. In my opinion, it is too overpriced! I would not advise IBS sufferers to buy these pills. It is better to spend money on some effective prescription medications."

"Kijimea IBS is a total waste of money. I had a badly upset stomach after taking just two tablets. It took me two days to get over. The product made my IBD symptoms much worse. Besides, this supplement is too expensive. I will never buy it again and I would not recommend it to anyone."
