Let’s Talk About Gut Health #Holigos

This post is sponsored by Holigos but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

If you've been here awhile, you know that gut health is something that I have struggled with for the past 15 years. There's nothing worse than the cramping and bloating that comes from an out-of-whack microbiome. Because April is IBS Awareness month, I wanted to talk about gut health today, and a product that I've been using for the past several weeks that has been beneficial in helping me maintain a balanced microbiome. If you're struggling with IBS symptoms, such a bloating, constipation, diarrhea, or stomach pain, Holigos™ IBS may help you reduce those symptoms, ranging from mild to severe.


Holigos™IBS is not another probiotic, but a medical food that is added into food or beverage once a day that can potentially help those with IBS manage their condition in a unique way. Holigos™ IBS is a new, non-prescription product formulated with Human-Natural Oligosaccharides, which are nutrients unique to the human body as they are similar to those found in the protective lining of the digestive tract and identical in structure to those found in mother’s milk. Our bodies themselves produce these unique compounds which are critical for digestive health. They nourish and support our intestinal barrier by stimulating the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut. This process helps build strong intestinal barriers and regulate the immune system as well as promote overall digestive and immune health.

Research shows that those suffering with IBS have an unbalanced microbiome. The HNOs in Holigos™ IBS are unique in how they selectively feed your own good gut bacteria allowing them to grow and flourish, which makes it hard for the bad bacteria to grow and flourish, limiting their negative impact on the digestive system. A recently completed clinical trial program with Holigos™ IBS, including 300 participants and 25 medical centers here in the US has shown very promising results in IBS symptom reduction. More than 85% of participants showed significant improvement in IBS symptoms after regularly using Holigos™ IBS.

Clinical study participants experience: 
  • Less pain – Days with stomach pain reduced from 4 to less than 1½ over the course of a week. Imagine having 12 days fever with pain in a month.
  • Regular Bowel movement – Instances of constipation and diarrhea reduced by more than a half.
  • Reduced bloating – Bloating severity reduced by more than 60%.
  • Increased quality of life – 55% improvement on measures such as energy and mood.

Holigos™IBS comes in convenient single serving packets that are easy to tear open to empty the contents into your food or beverage once daily. It is odorless and tasteless, so you can mix it with any food or drink (cold or warm) that you like without having to worry about it affecting the flavor or texture. I like to mix it into a warm mug of tea every morning, but I have mixed it into my oatmeal without any issues as well.


I have definitely seen some digestive improvements since starting Holigos™ IBS, mainly slightly less cramping and bloating daily. I will say that I did notice increased gas and loud tummy rumbling during my first week of use, but that was expected as they were listed as potential side effects while my body was adjusting to using the product daily. However, that has since stopped and I am feeling the positive changes beginning to take place within my digestive tract now. For most people, this should pass within weeks, but for some people, these mild symptoms may last longer. If you do experience more severe symptoms after taking Holigos™ IBS, you should stop taking the product.

How often to you experience IBS related symptoms? Have you been able to successfully manage your IBS?


  1. Sounds like a marvellous medicine! I do hate IBS ever so much, I read somewhere that almost all of humans have it in stronger or weaker degree, some always, some in certain points of their lives. I've always had it, but I never really did any therapy like you have. I probably should, though. I think that modern food and food industry really do not help us much in this problem, and might be the cause of it. Sometimes I think I should just move onto a mountain and live like a goat grazing grass and not much else :)

  2. It's really nice when you can find something to help. I know someone who has IBS and Diverticulitis. Eating is interesting for her. :(

  3. I've never heard of this product. Interesting post.

  4. I used to have so many stomach problems. Now looking back I think it's because I couldn't get mucus up. After my surgery I can get too much up. It's gross. When I think about how I probably swallowed it before I'm glad I can get it up and out.

    I'm sorry you have issues. :( This product looks great. You could even put some in a smoothie.

  5. Something that works is a win, few things rarely do for my crappy body and bowel and nerves and...haha

  6. I hope this product continues to help you, Theresa! I had c. difficile once, after problems with a dental/sinus infection and a strong antibiotic. I wouldn't wish IBS on anyone!
