I bought some corn silk capsules the other day and the ingredients list gelatin,which is alright,but then it said magnesium stearate.Is that o.k.? I've been taking it 3xs a day,I read it's supposed to help with flare-ups but I haven't noticed a difference.I've been flaring like crazy,I'm experiencing an great deal of stress!!! Help!!!
I have never tried this so I have no experience. If you are having trouble you might try stopping it and see if you get better. Stress will also cause flares for me. You should check and make sure you are not dealing with an infection that is making your IC worse. I hope you are doing better soon.

magnesium should be good. It is also in Prelief. If you think it may be bothering you maybe you are getting constipated. Too much can do that to you....drink a lot of water to help prevent that!

I think cornsilk is an old remedy for bladder infections. It probaly won't help IC. Although that's just my opinion.

I can tell you that cornsilk has helped me far more than anything else I have tried. Very soothing to the urinary track.

Oh Thanks I might give it a try!! Thanks. I just remember my mother in law thought my IC was a UTI and she gave me an old Mexican remedy for UTI's that her mother used and cornsilk was in one of the ingredients. So I guess if it helped back then, I guess it probaly is helpful. Glad it helps you!!

Remember too, with any natural remedy, it will take a little longer for it to work. I have been on two natural supplements for about 6 weeks now, and they are wonderful and have helped me a great deal. Please....give it time. reading these boards, I have read a lot of good things about corn silk. Remember too, what's good for others, may not be good for you. If corn is a trigger food for you (it was for me for almost two years, I just started eating it again) well, cornsilk isn't going to work for you. Marchmallow root tea works for me. Good luck! :)
