Wellcare Provim IBS is the theme of our product review today. The manufacturer claims Provim IBS can assist with the regulation of your intestinal fauna and pH. It can support the digestive system and help alleviate the symptoms of IBS. Provim IBS contains probiotics. In its enteric-coated tablet form, Provim IBS ensures the probiotics reach the intestines without being affected by the acidic secretions of the stomach and bile acids.

Lactobacillus acidophilus is a type of good bacteria that is found in your intestines and it plays a beneficial part in human health. It can also support healthy stomach health but also has side effects such as intestinal gas or bloating upset stomach and diarrhea. Sodium Butyrate is the sodium salt of the butyric acid. Butyrate is a short chain fatty production found in the colon.
Take two (don’t chew) enteric coated tablets twice daily (4 per day) for 10 days during acute IBS attacks. Take two tablets once a day during the protection phase. The dosage instructions do not specify if you should take the capsules with food or water, or if you can take them all in one sitting or if you can spread them out.
The product is not sold directly from the manufacturer, but we did find it for sale on third-party websites for around $40.00. Shipping costs vary depending on the retailer. The manufacturer does not offer bulk buying discounts or new customer incentives. It’s hard to see but it looks like there are only 30 tablets in a box so this is a very expensive product to buy and use.
There is no guarantee or return policy offered by this manufacturer for this product.
Conclusion of Our Wellcare Provim IBS Review
In summarizing our review of this Wellcare IBS product we saw several encouraging aspects. It contains some likely beneficial ingredients (probiotics) for treating the symptoms of IBS and restoring the correct intestinal fauna and pH. There are clear dosage instructions provided on the product website. Provim IBS tablets are enteric coated to ensures that the therapeutic probiotic ingredients reach the intestines without being affected by the acidic secretions of the stomach. We do have some less positive things to say however. There is no guarantee or return policy offered by this manufacturer for this product. The manufacturer does not offer bulk buying discounts or new customer incentives. We found this to be an expensive product at $40 for 30 tablets. (At a recommended dose of 4 tablets per day you will soon run out of tablets). Shipping costs are extra and there are no free shipping offers. There is no assurance from the manufacturer that the ingredients in this product are non GMO, free from fillers and binders, and that the product is suitable for vegans and vegetarians. There are not enough details about possible side effects or warnings for use. For all these reasons, we suggest that you look to other brands of IBS supplement for a better course of treatment. Of particular concern was the lack of guarantee, the high price, and lack of side effect and warning information.
