ABSTRACT
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common gut disorder, causing abdominal cramps and pain. It impacts the lifestyle and interrupts daily functioning, which leads to increased stress. Because of its multiple factors of pathophysiology, the conventional medical approach is more complex and challenging, whereas a holistic herbal therapy seems promising for many individuals. Nearly more than 80% of the population depends on herbal medication for their primary health care. Herbal remedies may be considered as a supplement or alternative to treat IBS patients. However, parallelly it should address all possible contributing factors, such as stress, diet and lifestyle. In this context, various herbs such as curcuma, peppermint oil, fennel and ginger have been proved for their management of gut disorders such as IBS. Even though the mechanism of action varies between herb to herb but as a whole the consumer interest towards these functional ingredients is increasing due to hopeful results.
