Ancient Herb STOPS Diarrhea

We’ve all been there before. 

Maybe you’re sitting at a baseball game… or maybe you’re at a friend’s birthday dinner… when it hits you like a ton of bricks. 

You’ve got diarrhea… and it’s ruining your good time. 

So – like most of us – you reach for the pink stuff or some other over-the-counter remedy. 

But they don’t work. 

You see, mainstream diarrhea meds only mask your stomach issues… and can even make them worse. 

Well, it doesn’t have to be this way any longer. 

Researchers have just found that an ancient Chinese herb can help you PREVENT and even STOP diarrhea in its tracks.

An exciting new study has confirmed the medicinal properties of a traditional Chinese medicine derived from the Rubia cordifolia plant – commonly called Indian madder.

You see, extract from Indian madder has been used as an anti-diarrheal and anti-inflammatory for centuries.

And modern science has just discovered why this natural remedy is so powerful.

For the study, 50 rats with diarrhea were divided into five groups of 10 rats each:

  • Group one was treated with distilled water as the control
  • Group two was treated with the over-the-counter anti-diarrheal loperamide
  • Group three was given 500mg/kg of Indian madder
  • Group four was given 1,000mg/kg of Indian madder
  • Group five was given 2,000mg/kg of Indian madder

After 30 minutes, the rats were again induced with diarrhea and observed.

Ultimately, the rats were examined for inflammation in the gut and colon. And what the researchers found was rather remarkable.

They discovered that Indian madder extract had done three things:

  • Delayed the onset of diarrhea
  • Inhibited the stomach movements that cause loose stools
  • And reduced damage to the colon.

Even better? These incredible benefits were present with all doses. 

And the over-the-counter group? No such luck. 

If you or a loved one is suffering from unpredictable bowels, try Indian madder – even at a low dose it is remarkably effective. 

Indian madder extract can be found in some health food stores and online from Bolt Health Supplements and Vadik Herbs under its scientific name, Rubia cordifolia.
