Guar gum and pregnancy cholestasis

Guar gum given to pregnant women suffering intrahepatic cholestasis reduced itching and serum bile acid levels. (European Journal of Clinical Investigation 28(5)359-363, 1998)

This disorder can be very distressing to pregnant women, but is often difficult to control.
