Study proves that LP299V is an effective IBS treatment

The live bacteria strain LP299V® is a key part of our Gut Health supplement, helping you improve your gut health and, therefore, support your overall health and wellbeing. LP299V® has been scientifically proven to help with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) symptoms in the past and an impressive new study has found that it is one of only a handful of bacterial strains with excellent scientific evidence to treat gut symptoms associated with IBS. 

A new study published in the journal EClinicalMedicine in November 2021, aimed to collate all of the evidence from clinical trials of probiotics on symptoms of IBS. The aim of this study was to discover the exact probiotic strains that work both safely and efficiently when symptoms of IBS such as bloating and abdominal pain.

As suggested by the American Gastroenterology Association (AGA) and the European Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN), the study only included probiotics that had been studied in at least two randomized, controlled trials (RCTs), the best method to examine the effectiveness of treatment. LP299V®, the bacterial strain used in Sons Gut Health Supplement, has been studied in >60 clinical trials, at least 5 of which have focussed specifically on IBS symptoms. 

Lynne V. McFarland PhD and her colleagues were the professionals leading this groundbreaking study, which has helped us to collate all of the evidence regarding the benefits of LP299V® and other live bacterial strains and their effects on IBS symptoms. The researchers identified 42 RCTs, five of which used the LP299V® strain.

The results from all 42 of these studies found that only four of the bacterial strains had evidence for reducing the frequency of abdominal pain, one of the most common IBS symptoms, one of which was LP299V®. In fact, researchers found that only six single-strain supplements (including LP299V®) showed significant improvement in at least one IBS symptom.

This study adds to the excellent evidence that already exists for LP299V® in improving symptoms of poor gut health, showing that it is one of only a few live bacterial supplements on the market with good scientific evidence behind it. Gut health is an essential part of both healthy physical and mental wellbeing, so taking care of it should be high on the priority list. Taken daily and containing LP299V®, our Gut Health supplement provides you with extra help in dealing with IBS symptoms and keeping you at your best.
