Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Irritiale Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
We get frequent enquiries about Tailwind and IBS. Fortunately I do not suffer from IBS so cannot comment from personal experience but Tailwind is made from natural ingredients with no laboratory made ingredients so is gentle on the stomach. As I write this note, on March 21, 2018, I've searched our reviews for the month to date and found the following.
“I was a bit dubious when I ordered this drink. I suffer with IBS and only use certain drinks. I first tried this drink whilst still at home, not a twinge. I have used it several times and went out today and ran 20 miles. This drink is great, the flavour is not overpowering and i didn't have any problems whilst out. I would definitely recommend it to people with stomach problems as it's very easy on the stomach. I bought the raspberry buzz 50 servings. Have to keep running to use it up so I can try another flavour. I highly recommend this product. Oh and it arrived very quickly as well.”
"Great product! Very pleased customer!"
As someone who suffers from IBS, I have struggled with using gels when running. I'm currently training for my first 100k and one of my big questions was how I would cope with eating during the run. So far Tailwind has been terrific. Not up to a great distance yet but on a 16mile training run my stomach was happy and good results in my last half marathon without feeling wrecked afterwards. So I am happy and would definitely recommend this product! The taste and texture is so much better than anything else I've tried. And it was easy to order and promptly delivered. Think this is the end of energy gels for me!
"Amazing Awesome Fantastic"
Admittedly, I am not yet back to the mileage that warrants this product, however, I wanted to try it.
I suffer from IBS so anything that I try has to be done well in advance.
The product is great, in taste and also in the fact that it doesn't seem to affect my delicate digestive system adversely.
I'm looking forward to getting my mileage back up to a point where I need to take my Tailwind out with me. Thanks all for a great product and the personal touch on delivery (my name on the bag and a lovely note) was most appreciated.
