i’m posting this to ask if anyone has heard or even tried a product called Gelsectan? It’s relatively new so there is a good chance that nobody has.
i suffer from IPS with my predominant symptom being abdominal pain around the pelvic area, it is chronic and i pretty much have had it every day for years, apart from having some respite from Prednisone.
i’m always on the lookout for anything new on the market that targets IBS pain symptoms and have had some good relief from Align but this seems to have stopped working.
I came across this product Gelsectan, it’s main method of action seems to be protecting and strengthening the intesinal barrier, which as we know can be comprimised by several things such as pathogens and even stress.
It seems to have good reviews for IBS D (diarrhoea predominant) and has some small studies backing this up.
I will do some more reading on this, i know this is designed for people with colon’s but sometimes us pouchers can get relief fron these kind of products, it may also help some of us with loose stools.
Here is a link with a bit of literature…
