Sometimes feel bloated? If so, you're not alone. Bloating is a common symptom experienced by many people, and various factors, including diet, stress, and certain medical conditions, can cause it. However, suppose your bloating is accompanied by other symptoms such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, or constipation. In that case, you may be experiencing irritable bowel syndrome, or IBS for short.

April is IBS awareness month, which helps shed some light on this chronic gastrointestinal disorder.  John Hopkins Medicine estimates that up to 15% of the global population suffers from IBS, making it one of the most common digestive disorders affecting the large intestine.

According to the Mayo Clinic, the exact underlying causes of Irritable Bowel Syndrome are still being researched and may differ from person to person.  Some people may experience symptoms without apparent reason.  This can make it challenging to approach treatment options and find the right solution.

IBS can be overwhelming, so we are dedicated to providing high-quality products and support to help you live comfortably and confidently.  Our Reusable Underwear features four layers of waterproof and absorbent material that work together to help absorb bowel leaks and smears.  These discreet and comfortable underwear give you the peace of mind that in the event of an IBS episode, you can confidently make your way to the bathroom, knowing the underwear is serving as a backup.

Rushing to the loo while squeezing everything tight and undoing your belt is stressful enough without the worry of slipping on bathroom tiles, especially if you’re in slippers or socks.  Our Anti-Slip Floor Mats can be positioned in front of your toilet to help prevent slips, stumbles, and tumbles.  The mat’s absorbent surface can effectively capture any toilet misses or splashes and is easy to clean and dry.
