Abstract

Work with infants has shown that the incidence and duration of diarrhoea is lower when nucleotide supplementation is given, and animal work shows that villi height and crypt depth in the intestine is increased as a result of dietary nucleotides. Dietary nucleotides may be semi-essential under conditions of ill-health, poor diet or stress. Since people with Irritable Bowel Syndrome tend to fulfil these conditions, we tested the hypothesis that symptoms would be improved with dietary nucleotide supplementation on thirty-seven people with a diagnosis of Irritable Bowel.
The study found that dietary nucleotide supplementation improved some of the symptoms of irritable bowel above baseline and placebo level.
