What Is Irritable Bowel Syndrome To Begin With?

Irritable bowel syndrome is a disorder that affects the digestive system, or more particularly, the large intestine. Given that it usually has no symptoms, it is quite possible that a lot of us have had it at one point in our lives or the other without actually realizing it. Even in the rare cases where there are symptoms, they are so ordinary that we tend to think nothing of them.

Caffeine in excess could lead to irritable bowel syndrome. A cup of coffee or tea may be safely enjoyed regularly, the main culprit here would be energy drinks and the link which have abnormally high levels of caffeine. Too much of those could cause problems much more serious than irritable bowels.


Too much milk can cause gaseous issues in the body and be a cause of irritable bowel syndrome. Milk has a number of beneficial effects and must not be avoided; it may need to be consumed in moderation.


Anxiety and stress are the root cause of a wide variety of problems including indigestion. When you are stressed or overly anxious, the body does not digest food properly. Over time this can cause irritable bowel syndrome.

Lack of fluid intake

The importance of water cannot be overstated. The digestive system needs an adequate amount of water day in and day out to perform its functions effectively.
