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."

This sounded good, however if it is indeed similar to FOS then it will be bad for me. Think I will give it a try in a month when I could handle a bit of disruption.

Polysaccharides are often found in many medicinal herbs used for immune enhancement, including Echinacea and Astragalus. (3) AG is a fine, dry, off-white powder with a mildly sweet taste that mixes well with liquids. This safe and effective phytochemical is FDA approved for use as a dietary fiber and as a food additive. There are no known reports of toxicity. Credit for introducing larch AG into clinical practice goes to the distinguished naturopathic physician, Dr. Peter DAdamo.

AG Supports Digestion Larch AG acts as a food supply to friendly intestinal bacteria. Like the well-known fructooligosaccharides (FOS), AG is considered a prebiotic. The non-absorbed fiber is eagerly fermented by the distal gut microflora, resulting in an elevated production of short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs)?primarily butyrate, but also propionate. SCFAs are critically important to the health of the colon and are the principal energy source (butyrate) for the colonic epithelial cells. (8,9) Many clinicians use prebiotics to prevent and treat intestinal conditions like diverticulosis, leaky-gut, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) as well as inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) like Crohns and ulcerative colitis.
