Did you know that 50% of the people in the western world suffer with piles at some point during their life?

Our tablet solution to piles has been through a double-blind placebo-controlled cross over trial at the Ulster University, a leading research unit in this field. You can read about their research unit here. Taken orally, so no messy cream, and developed over years to relieve the pain associated with piles.

Piles (haemorrhoids)  are very common, with about 50% of people experiencing them at some time during their life.  They can affect anyone at any age and are the result of inflamed, swollen veins in the rectum and anus, that can form either internally or externally.  More often than not, this is a result of straining to have a bowel movement, and is especially common in those suffering from constipation, the elderly, and pregnant women. 

Diet can play a significant role in causing - and preventing - haemorrhoids.  People who consistently eat a high-fibre diet are less likely to get haemorrhoids, but those who prefer a diet high in processed foods are at greater risk of haemorrhoids.  A low-fibre diet, or one with inadequate fluid intake, can cause constipation, which can contribute to haemorrhoids in two ways: it promotes straining on the toilet and it also aggravates the haemorrhoids by producing hard stools that further irritate the swollen veins.


What are Piles?

Diagram showing internal and external piles

A "haemorrhoid" is a blood vessel, in or around the anus and lower rectum, which stretches and become swollen under pressure. A more common name for haemorrhoids is piles.

Who Gets Piles?

Pregnant women often suffer from piles

Piles are extremely rare in rural areas of Asia and Africa. Why? Because in the West we tend to eat a lot more processed and refined foods and skimp on fibre. Pregnant women commonly get piles.
