Conclusion of Our Martin Clinic IBS Formula Review
We found some encouraging aspects to this product. It contains an all-natural formula of ingredients known to provide relief from IBS. It is from from artificial preservatives, sugars, dairy or colorings. The manufacturer offers a guarantee within 90 days of purchase. There is a 10% off discount coupon for first time orders. If you spend $100 or more, shipping is free within Canada. We do have several concerns however. It lacks some key ingredients that are found in competitor products such as Aloe Vera and Fennel Oil, which further enhance their ability to provide relief from IBS. These competitor products may prove more effective. Pricewise, this is not a well priced product considering it costs $39.97 for a one month supply of capsules. There are no discounts for bulk-buys. Shipping is an extra and unspecified cost. This guarantee only applies to products that have not been used. There are only 2 customer reviews on the product website which makes it difficult for us to confidently assure that the product is effective. The manufacturer fails to provide information about specific warnings or side effects when using this product. In terms of dosage, the manufacturer did not specify a preferred time of day that you should take the product to get the best results. There is no assurance from the manufacturer that the ingredients in this product are non GMO, or that the product is made in an FDA certified facility, or that the product is free from binders or fillers. For all these reasons we suggest that you look elsewhere for an IBS supplement.
