IBS: Irritable bowel syndrome

IBS which is also called spastic colon is a gastrointestinal disorder where those unfortunate enough to suffer it will experience chronic abdominal pain, discomfort and bloating for which there is no cure.

Soluble fiber for IBS

A report in the British Medical Journal of a study by Dutch scientists indicated that pysllium, a natural soluble vegetable fibre, should be used as treatment of choice for Irritable Bowel Syndrome. The researchers tested 3 treatments on 275 patients, 10gm of either pysllium, bran or rice flour twice (used as a placebo) a day for 12 weeks and found that those taking psyllium had symptom severity reduced by 90 points, while those on bran reduced by 58 points and 49 points for the placebo.
