Low-FODMAP Diet Is More Effective in Treating IBS Symptoms Than Costly Medications
CINCINNATI (October 24, 2016) – The 45 million Americans who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) gained a vital ally today when Rachel Pauls Food launched its website and began taking online orders for a first-of-its-kind line of energy bars called Happy Bars.
Great-tasting Happy Bars come in four flavors: Chocolate Chip Delight, Orange Chocolate Ecstasy, Peanut Chocolate Euphoria and Peanut Maple Pleasure. The bars are unique, and a breakthrough for IBS sufferers, because they are scientifically verified to contain less than 0.5 grams of total FODMAPs per serving.
FODMAPs are carbohydrates that can trigger gas, bloating, cramping, diarrhea and constipation. FODMAP is an acronym for Fermentable Oligosaccharides, Disaccharides, Monosaccharides and Polyols. Extensive medical research shows that following a low-FODMAP eating plan can help eliminate digestive discomfort.
Dr. Rachel Pauls, a physician and mother of three, follows a low-FODMAP food plan to eliminate her own IBS symptoms. She founded Rachel Pauls Food to help people more easily manage their digestive issues and live healthier, happier lives.
Rachel Pauls Food also is the developer of the only known North American lab test capable of analyzing food for FODMAP content. The company’s Dr. Rachel Pauls Low-FODMAP Seal of Approval means a food product has been scientifically analyzed and verified as low-FODMAP and contains less than 0.5 grams of total FODMAPS per serving.
“Twenty to 40 percent of visits to GI doctors are for IBS symptoms, and avoiding foods that trigger flare-ups is an effective treatment,” Dr. Pauls said. “Following a low-FODMAP diet is often more successful than costly medications that have side effects.”
Seventy to 80 percent of IBS patients improved while on a low-FODMAP diet, usually within one to four weeks, according to a review of worldwide dietary intervention studies published in the September 2016 New Zealand Medical Journal.
“I want to connect IBS sufferers with low-FODMAP food to empower them to control their symptoms and help set them free,” Dr. Pauls said.
Each Happy Bar contains simple, all-natural ingredients, with eight to 10 grams of protein and three grams of fiber. At 210 to 215 calories each, the bars feature healthy fats derived from either peanuts or almonds. They contain no preservatives.
A box of 12 Happy Bars costs $34.99. Each additional box ordered at the same time is $29.99. Shipping is free.
