Psyllium Fiber the Best Treatment for IBS

Soluble psyllium fiber is the most effective treatment for IBS, according to researchers in the Netherlands. Many people use bran fiber as a way to combat the abdominal pain and irregular bowel habits associated with IBS; however, this study calls that assumption into question. It appears that bran may worsen the symptoms of this condition. The study involved 275 subjects who were given either psyllium fiber, bran fiber or a placebo. Those who were given psyllium fiber showed a marked decrease in symptom severity in comparison with the two other groups. BBC News, August 27, 2009
