Well I was just doing some research into whether things like fish oil/omega-3 works to reduce crohn's symptoms. In the few articles I found, they gave relatively negative results saying omega-3 patients had similar outcomes as placebo groups. However, I did come across one article that postulated that maybe L-carnitine supplementation would help in reducing overactive immune responses and may reduce intestinal inflammation. I know that L-Carnitine is an amino acid that helps with fat metabolism, but does anyone here use L-Carnitine for their crohn's specifically??

Ya, I too have actually heard that omegas didn't do anything for IBD inflammation but I still take them because I feel better taking them, I think they may help with my IBD and I know they help with other things besides my IBD, like mood for example and it is something our bodies don't make so we do need to either eat fish enough times a week or use fish supplements cuz our bodies in general do need omegas. So even if it doesn't help specifically for IBD it's still necessary for our bodies. Just my veiw.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
