You may be surprised at the number of people that tell us each week that they suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).  IBS is actually quite common.  It’s a gastrointestinal disorder that is usually connected with severe abdominal pain, bloating, cramping, and a significant change in bowel movements. 

Here’s a little of what I discovered:-

While there is no known cure for IBS, researchers are exploring various treatment options, including the use of our beloved beta-caryophyllene (BCP)!!  As we have discussed previously, BCP is known to promote healthy inflammatory processes, which makes it a promising treatment option for conditions like IBS and other chronic inflammatory conditions.

Additionally, beta-caryophyllene has been found to be gastro-protective and ideal for reducing inflammation in the intestines, which is a major cause of IBS. Studies have shown that beta-caryophyllene can interact with the same receptors as certain antidepressant medications, leading to reduced symptoms of stress. This makes it a promising treatment option for those who suffer from IBS as well as migraines and fibromyalgia, as these symptoms are strongly evident in people who have IBS.

Beta-caryophyllene has also been found to inhibit induced colitis as well as regulate the gut microbiota in mice through CB2 receptor activation.  Gotta love that CB2 activation!!!
