Has anyone tried this ? My neighbor said it saved her friends daughter,however a quick google revealed negative commentary from wikipedia.
Elsewhere I found this :
"Both Ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease are considered autoimmune illnesses and studies indicate they may be caused by a defect in the body's mucosal-lining defensive barrier which consists of glycoproteins called glycosaminoglycans or GAG for short. Wherever the barrier is defective toxins and pathogens can penetrate, causing inflammation, infection and ulceration. The defect and subsequent invasion allow fluid and protein to leak out, disrupting the vascular structure and connective tissue. Chronic inflammation causes scarring and the body's shift into a high-gear immune response - and autoimmune disease.
Rather than trying to halt the inflammatory response, with steroids and other immune suppressants it may be more effective to rebuild the GAG layer. Saccharide (glyconutrient) deficiencies have been found in patients with ulcerative colitis - they are deficient in many of the eight essential glyconutrients. For people with ulcerative colitis, glyconutrients, in Ambrotose, may support the body to repair and rebuild the GAG layer and so prevent the inflammation and ulceration.
All bodies, not just those that have ulcerative colitis, need glyconutrients, in Ambrotose, to support the body's ability to heal, repair, regenerate, regulate and protect itself."www.glyconutrientsreference.com/mannatech/medicalconditions/colitis.html
