Iberogast is providing relief of gastrointestinal disturbances in more than 30 countries
The combination of 9 medicinal herbs used in Iberogast was researched and developed in the late 1950s. Iberogast has been providing sufferers with effective relief from multiple symptoms associated with gastrointestinal disturbances such as functional dyspepsia and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) ever since.
Using science to relieve symptoms
For more than 55 years, Iberogast has helped people find relief of multiple symptoms associated with gastrointestinal disturbances such as functional dyspepsia and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Iberogast is made up of a unique combination of 9 medicinal ingredients that are naturally sourced, and has helped generations of people find relief of multiple symptoms associated with gastrointestinal disturbances such as functional dyspepsia and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). However, it was only through intensive research that the benefits of the nine medicinal herbs used in Iberogast were truly understood.
Today Iberogast is available in over 25 different countries around the globe.
When it comes to making Iberogast, Bayer uses the same rigorous manufacturing and quality standards applied to all its medicines. This approach, paired with the naturally sourced medicinal ingredients means Iberogast is an effective solution. No wonder Iberogast is the number one selling gastrointestinal product in Germany and is highly recommended by doctors in that country as an effective treatment for patients suffering multiple gastrointestinal disturbances associated with functional dyspepsia and irritable bowel syndrome(IBS) ever since.
Over 55 years of Iberogast
The clear understanding of the combination of 9 medicinal herbs/ plants actually only became clear over the decades - through intensive research.
Iberogast is born in Germany
The combination of 9 medicinal herbs used in Iberogast was researched and developed in the late 1950s. By the early 1960s, Iberogast was born in Germany. They used the existing extensive medicinal plant knowledge - and expanded it further to find the right composition and mixing ratio of the selected nine medicinal plants. Quality standards and controls were defined and set standards for future production. Initially, Iberogast was manufactured by hand, right from extraction and blending to filling and packing. This was a painstaking process.
Scientific research into Iberogast continued from the outset. In the 1970s, the aim was to make Iberogast’s manufacturing process more effective and to expand production so more people could benefit from the treatment.
Multi -action effect is discovered
In 1986, one of Iberogast’s key characteristics was discovered: its multi -action effect. This means that Iberogast has a different diverging effects on different parts of the gastrointestinal tract. This discovery led to a variety of new research activities and important publications. From the mid 1980s, additional research was carried out and proved Iberogast’s established safety and tolerability.
Multi-target effect is discovered
In the mid 1990s, Iberogast’s individual modes of action were researched. This led to its multi-target effect being found. Each of the nine specially-selected herbal plant extracts in Iberogast have their own active ingredients that target different causes for gastrointestinal disturbances. Combined in Iberogast, they reinforce each other and work together “synergistically” to relieve a range of symptoms associated with gastrointestinal disturbances such as FD and IBS. Iberogast's efficacy was further investigated too, based on new international guidelines that had recently been introduced.
The new millennium brought fresh discoveries. In 2003, new research uncovered Iberogast’s ability to have effects in different specific regions of the gastrointestinal tract. The wider scientific community were immediately interested in this groundbreaking discovery. Further studies followed. The following year a positive effect on irritable bowel syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease was identified.
From strength to strength
Iberogast’s success story continues today. For many years, it’s been the number one gastrointestinal medicine in Germany, and it’s been used by an estimated 52 million sufferers. Iberogast is extremely popular with patients of all ages in over 25 countries across the world. Research into Iberogast is continuing. It’s a well documented plant-based natural health product for gastrointestinal disorders in the world, and it’s highly recommended by doctors in many countries as a fast, effective, safe solution for people struggling with digestive symptoms.
