he/she probably suggested you try it because it's a product of multilevel marketing and has to sell it for his/her own success/investment.

I can't see that it would be "successful"in the way that it would be better than food or juicing you can do yourself.

I can't see anything wrong with taking it if you like the taste and the price is affordable. If you're going to take it for hopes of your UC improving, etc...you might be disappointed.

I never thought it would cure uc. I just nought it might improve nutrition.

I never said cure.

Seems it could improve nutrition intake to a point, depending on what you would eat normally.

Just be aware that for some, a liquid intake of high fruit or veggies might give a looser stool...that doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad thing...it could mean you're consuming too much. Easy to find the balance by adjusting intake and taking in enough to find a comfortable stool consistency.

Keep us posted as to how you're liking it.
