Powerful supplements for your Gut
Managing your Crohn's and Colitis shouldn't be so difficult. Most people with Crohn’s and Colitis are unable to absorb nutrients properly due to small intestinal inflammation, resulting in what is known as malabsorption. IBDassist was created to help those with Crohn's and Colitis get the vitamins they need.
71% of people who are diagnosed with IBD's take on average 10 to 15 different capsules a day. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to create exceptional, nutrient-packed supplements, crafted only from proven, high-quality ingredients. Instead of purchasing all of your IBD vitamins separately... we allow you to get your IBD vitamins in 1 capsule, once a day, for a fraction of the price.
What makes us different?
IBD assist™ is different than a regular multivitamin because it is specifically formulated looking at the deficiencies associated in Crohn’s and Colitis patients. Each ingredient and dosage is chosen to help with gut inflammation.
We have evolved into an IBD activist movement looking to help educate and empower those in the IBD community. We aim to spread love, compassion, and awareness to all of our IBD customers.
Certain natural products with anti-inflammatory properties can help tame the inflammation involved in intestinal inflammatory diseases, thus improving intestinal barrier function.
Turkey Tail Mushroom
According to an NIH study, Turkey Tail is considred as an alternative dietary approach for the prevention of colitis-associated cancer.
In a study by Allah et al., ginger administration (400 mg/kg) significantly improved the effects of acetic acid-induced colitis.
Iodine is an essential mineral that is needed for the production of thyroid hormones. The thyroid gland uses iodine to produce the hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3).
Studies have suggested that turmeric may help reduce inflammation in the thyroid gland, which can help alleviate symptoms of Hashimoto's disease such as fatigue, weight gain, and depression.
Chromium supplementation may have a beneficial effect on people with autoimmune diseases, including Hashimoto's disease, by reducing inflammation, improving glucose metabolism, and modulating the immune system.
Calcium has been shown to have a calming effect on the muscles in the gut, which may help reduce symptoms of IBS such as abdominal pain and diarrhea. It also can help to regulate the contractions of the muscles in the large intestine which can reduce symptoms of constipation.
Peppermint oil works by relaxing the muscles in the gut, which can reduce spasms and cramps, and also by reducing gas and bloating. It also has a cooling effect on the body which can reduce feelings of discomfort, and it can improve gut motility.
Studies have found that people with IBS tend to have lower levels of vitamin B12 compared to those without IBS. Vitamin B12 deficiency may also exacerbate symptoms of IBS, such as abdominal pain, bloating, and constipation.
Marshmallow root has been known to help reduce inflammation and coat/soothe the gut, which helps with digestion.
Chamomile is known to soothe the stomach, relieve gas, and relax intestinal muscles to ease cramps for most people.
Lemon Balm is known to be an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory with antibacterial qualities. Taking lemon balm for 15 days was shown to reduce pain and improve bowel function in Crohn's and colitis patients.
I’ve had Crohn’s disease for 8 years and I always felt bloated and uncomfortable. I would have the occasional flare maybe once every 2 months. I did research and found these, I’m going on my second month. I think the only reason I’m not feeling as bad as I usually do is because of this multivitamin.
I have been taking this for the past few months for my ulcerative colitis. Honestly I feel great, had one minor flare up but nothing to extreme. I also switched to a low-FODMAP diet as well. Would recommend if you take many of these vitamins separate. The convenience is HUGE
This multivitamin has helped me get all my vitamins for my UC. Makes my life so much easier than taking everything separate. I am on both Sterala and Prednisone and got a ostomy bag put in a few month ago. It has definitely been a struggle for sure, but I am getting better every day. Highly recommend adding this to your regimen.
