Some statistics and research have shown that between 5 and 15% of people who are considered healthy have SIBO. Furthermore, 8 of 10 individuals have SIBO. People who have problems with the intestine, or feel bloated and uncomfortable, regardless of the kind of food they consume, most often have SIBO.
SIBO is term that is used to describe the excessive growth of the bacteria in the small intestine. The level of the bacteria is low when the stomach is working properly.
People who are affected with SIBO typically have a high level of bacteria in the small intestine. But, if everything is normal, these bacteria could be located in the large intestine. The bacteria feed on the remains of the food in the small intestine before the food is completely dissolved and the nutrients
are absorbed. Usually their diet leads to pain, diarrhea, bloating constipation or gas.
The excessive growth of the bacteria can cause inflammation, which has very negative effect on the mucous membrane of the small intestine.
There are many medications to relieve this condition, but they are also full of chemicals and, in fact, you need allicin. It can be found in products such as oregano, garlic and other similar plants with strong antimicrobial properties.
