We’ve put together our favourite supplements for people with Intestinal Methane Overgrowth – aka IMO (also formerly known as methane dominant SIBO)
The gentle yet powerful supplements we’ve included in this kit can:
- Reduce your symptoms such as bloating, gas and constipation
- Reduce the methane overgrowth for long term results
BioGaia® Protectis® is a dietary supplement containing the patented lactic acid bacterium Lactobacillus reuteri Protectis (aka – L. reuteri DSM 17938) that helps the good microorganisms keep a natural balance in the gut. L. reuteri Protectis has been tested in more than 130 clinical trials and proven effective and safe for children and adults. It can be very helpful for constipation and has been shown to reduce methane production in the gut.
Atrantil is a new nutraceutical that may relieve bloating and abdominal discomfort caused by gas (especially methane) in the gut. Developed by a gastroenterologist, Atrantíl three natural botanicals work together to produce long-term relief for these difficult-to-treat digestive symptoms while promoting a healthy gut.
Neem Plus has a proprietary blend of Emblica officinalis (amla) for its antioxidant and adaptogenic properties; Terminalia chebula (haritaki) as a detoxifier; Terminalia belerica for its digestive and liver support, as well as Tinospora cordifolia and Rubia cordifolia for their immune-supporting effects. It’s been used successfully for years for the treatment of SIBO.
