Jan (Netherlands (Nederland)) on 11/18/2014: Beta Glucan for IBS.
I found a huge relief with 3 x 400 mg Beta Glucan daily. Allready used psylium ( always let it soak in water for at least an hour or it will dehydrate your bowels ) and FOS. Ofcourse this was helpfull with the constipation. But the addition of the Beta Glucan took the pain in the bowels away.
For more info go to "http://www.youngagain.org/books.html" look for the pdf. Beta Glucan and you will find a reference for a given patent to the connection IBS and Beta Glucan.
-- "Another PCT patent was issued in 1992 WO94 04,136 for irritable bowel syndrome, including diarrhea and constipation in humans. This shows that many companies around the world realize the value of beta glucan in many health conditions and are busy trying to
patent their particular product. Every year you will see more and more such patents." --
It helped me .. hope it will help you to.
