Irritable Bowel Syndrome – What is it, What to do about it

It is an intestinal disorder.

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) affects the large intestine. Signs and symptoms include cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea or constipation, or both.

Only a small number of people have severe signs and symptoms.

Most people with IBS experience times when the symptoms are worse and times when they improve or even disappear completely.

What can Vitamin C do for Your Nerves?

Sorbitol (a form of sugar) travels to certain parts of the body where it builds up. These parts of the body are:

– the lens of the eye where it forms a white milky film called cataracts and

– the sciatic nerve (the big nerve that runs down your leg) where it can cause nerve damage (nerve pain).

Evidence indicates that taking 2,000 mg a day of vitamin C may reduce the production of sorbitol and help strip sorbitol out of the body.

Most of the vitamin C sold in the US is ascorbic acid by itself, a whole food or food based Vitamin C is what is needed.
