Common IBS Trigger Foods

Everyone responds to food differently, so I recommend using a food diary to identify what your personal trigger foods are before completely eliminating anything from your diet.

Chocolate, IBS, Food Cures


Chocolate (specifically dark) contains powerful antioxidants that may help lower blood pressure and improve circulation. Unfortunately, it is also known to trigger IBS symptoms (and migraines) in some people. If eating chocolate—or other foods that contain chocolate—seems to be causing your digestive discomfort, you're better off looking for another way to indulge.
