Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Treatment/Cure - An in-depth explanation of the ingredients

in #sciencelast year

In my previous post I explained my IBS treatment/cure. This is an in-depth explanation of the ingredients I use, and an explanation of the altering formulas.


  1. Magnesium
    This reduces water retention, such as might be caused by bloating.
    It brings water into the bowels, making stool more loose.
    It is proposed that magnesium inhibits water mobility and serves as a Lewis acid catalyst to facilitate Maillard reactions.

  2. Maple Syrup
    As well as providing sugar, it contains many other vital ingredients
    The sugars are needed to react with the amino acids in the maillard reaction
    Perfect for the end product sugar lattice which contains the active ingredients of the formula, increasing bioavailability, and acting as an excellent delivery system.

  3. Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C)
    Increase bioavailability for glycine digestion by small intestine mircoflora.
    Increase acidity of formula for reactions

  4. L-glutamine
    Selectively feed the gut tubing
    L-glutamine derived compounds during maillard reaction
    Up-regulates Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) (boosted by derivative compounds)

  5. Monosodium Glutamate (tea spoon)
    Glutamate derived compounds from maillard reaction to boost effects of glutamine derived compounds.

  6. Licorice root
    Boosts NGF

  7. Siberian gingseng
    Chemically similar to Licorice root, likely to act in synergy

  8. Creatine
    Maintaining gut barrier function

  9. Flavonoids and other compounds (generated through maillard reaction)
    Modulation of microbiome and upregulation of NGF

Alternative Version/Grow formula

The above ingredients are specifically aimed at healing the gut. The alternative formula adds glycine and L-carnitine. Glycine is for feeding the small intestine, and l-carnitine is for the large intestine. It is to selectively feed and help repopulate your good microbiome.

Feel free to ask questions if you want to know more. But the above covers the basic concepts.
