Iberogast Original Formula is a prokinetic tincture comprised of nine different herbs. These herbs are Iberis amara, Angelica, Chamomile, Caraway fruit, St. Marys Thistle, Balm leaves, Peppermint leaves, Celandine, and Licorice root. It is specially formulated for the purpose of relieving irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and dyspepsia. Iberogast was created in 1961 in Germany and is available without prescription.

The herbal extracts in Iberogast work together to have a regulatory influence on the entire gastrointestinal tract. The main component, Iberis amara, has a tone-promoting and anti-inflammatory effect. Iberogast is a convenient liquid formulation with excellent patient tolerability.

Clinically proven to safely and effectively:

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Approximately 1 out of every 5 people suffer from the uncomfortable and sometimes painful condition of irritable bowel syndrome. IBS is usually characterized by chronic abdominal pain, discomfort, bloating, and alteration of bowel habits including constipation and diarrhea. IBS can sometimes be induced by an infection or a stressful life event. There is not a cure for IBS. However, there are some treatment methods such as certain medications, alterations in diet, and even psychological intervention that have proven to help relieve symptoms of IBS. Iberogast with iberis amara is one such treatment that has been found to significantly reduce the pain and symptoms associated with IBS.

Dyspepsia

Dyspepsia is a common and painful condition affecting the upper digestive tract. Chronic or recurrent pain in the upper abdomen are common with dyspepsia as well as feeling full earlier than expected when eating. Dyspepsia can be accompanied by bloating, belching, nausea or heartburn. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) or gastritis are often the culprits of dyspepsia. There are few treatment options found to be truly effective at relieving the discomfort associated with dyspepsia.

Iberogast was analyzed in 2004 during three, double-blind placebo-controlled studies. The data from the studies found Iberogast to be significantly more effective than placebo (p value = 0.001) at treating patients with functional dyspepsia. Iberogast demonstrated itself to be equivalent to cisapride and vastly superior to metochlopramide at reducing the symptoms of functional dyspepsia over a four week period. Retrospective surveillance of 40,961 children (12 years and under) found no serious side-effects.

How Does Iberogast Work?

The herbs in Iberogast work in a regulating way on the gastrointestinal tract. The key ingredient of Iberogast, iberis amara, promotes tone and acts as an anti-inflammatory. Iberogast accelerates the emptying of the digestive system. It has been found to reduce pain and cramping in the intestines. Iberogast works to relieve heartburn. Finally, it reduces bloating by inducing the release of gas from the lower gastrointestinal tract.

Dosage

It is usually recommended to take Iberogast 3 times daily with meals.

Adults/Children over 12 years 20 drops Children (6-12 years) 15 drops Children (3-6 years) 10 drops Children (3 months- 3 years) 8 drops Children under 3 months 6 drops

Side effects

There are no known side effects associated with the use of Iberogast. Iberogast has been used safely for more than 40 years in Europe. There are no known drug interactions with Iberogast and food does not influence its efficacy. You should always consult with your physician or pediatrician before taking Iberogast or giving it to your children. Do not take Iberogast if you have an allergy to any of the herbs in Iberogast or if you have an illness related to alcohol consumption.

Here's a list of the main herbs in Iberogast.

Iberis amara: The fresh plant extract of Iberis amara represents the prokinetic component in Iberogast. It increases the tone of smooth gastro-intestinal muscles and accelerates gastro-intestinal peristalsis. Extracts of Iberis amara are only contained in the medicine Iberogast.

Angelica: Acts to promote digestion, to relieve cramps and to promote gastric juice production.

Caraway Fruit: Acting in a microbicidal manner and relieve cramps. It improves the tolerability of flatulence promoting foods (e.g. cabbage, beans).

Peppermint Leaves: The extract acts in an anti-flatulent manner, relieves cramps and stimulates bile production.

Chamomile: Is a anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, cramp relieving and promotes wound healing.

St. Marys Thistle: Working in a hepatoprotective manner and stimulates the regeneration of liver cells.

Lemon Balm Leaves: The extract acts as a sedative and in an anti-flatulent manner.

Celandine: The extract acts to relieve cramps in bile ducts and in the gastro-intestinal tract.

Liquorice Root: The extract shows a cramp-relieving action and accelerates the healing of stomach ulcers.
