Natural Balance, IBX Soothing Bowel Formula, 120 Veggie Caps42 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Traditional Tibetan Medicine
The traditional Tibetan diet was high in meat, yak butter and alcohol with few fruits and vegetables. Little wonder that it took a toll on their digestion, contributing to abdominal discomfort, bloating and irregularity. To deal with such bothersome gastric complaints, Tibetans rely on herbs, such as Myrobalan, Elecampane, Rhubarb and Ginger. Now we have combined these herbs into one formula.
Today stress and the typical on-the-go diet may lead to intestinal distress, disrupting daily routines. IBx Soothing Bowel Formula is intended to provide nutritive support for abdominal comfort and health intestinal function. It adds soothing Peppermint and Aloe Vera to the time-tested Tibetan blend for a comprehensive approach to supporting regular, healthy bowel function.

iHerb Customer Reviews
As a long sufferer of intestinal complaints brought on by trauma and IBS, I found that senna, cassia, and other natural laxatives were too cramp-inducing. The active ingredient--rhubarb root-- in IBX is the ONLY herb I've found in 20 years that is gentle and ALWAYS effective. Interesting side note: When I was pregnant taking this product, my doctor researched it to see if it was ok to take and discovered a government study showing pregnant women in Germany take rhubarb root to control their blood pressure. So, you get both lower blood pressure and a gentle stimulant. Try taking IBX at night with 1 tsp psyllium powder mixed in 12 oz water for best effect. I have taken this product daily for at least 8 years.
I struggle with terrible constipation due to vagal neuropathy. This product does seem to help increase frequency of BM's. It greatly decreases gas and bloating. I use it along with Miralax and high doses of Magnesium.
