Typically people suffering from IBS have diarrhea as one of their symptoms. Though this is not the case with every case of Irritable Bowel Syndrome, the fact that Intestinal Bowel Support II claims to naturally fight IBS symptoms, yet contains a laxative could cause more problems than relief. In the first supplement, Intestinal Bowel Support I, marshmallow root works as a mild to moderate laxative. Intestinal Bowel Support II, to be taken at night, also contains a mild to moderate laxative slippery elm bark.
When judging the supplement in terms of weight loss, it falls into the category of laxative all the way. Weight loss may occur when taking the supplement, but it will be due to increased bowel movements and loss of water rather than loss of fat. Dieters should beware that even if IBS symptoms are troubling weight loss efforts, Intestinal Bowel Support II may make some symptoms worse, rather than better.
Intestinal Bowel Support II is sold as a kit including Intestinal Bowel Support I for $32.39. Products can be purchased directly from the official website.

Intestinal Bowel Support II is an IBS treatment that includes laxatives. The theory behind this is one we cannot understand. When seeking to lose weight, an IBS supplement such as this may produce short term weight loss, but weight will be regained as soon as the dieter stops taking the supplement.
