Hi All
Am posting this on both the Crohns and UC forums as it may be of interest to those looking for natural alternatives. Last night (Australian time) on one of the TV programs, there was a story on Mobicosa which is made from New Zealand green lipped mussels. It was mostly on the success of it on arthritis but they are now looking at using it to treat bowel disorders (excerpt below).
"While other species of mussels also contain anti-inflammatory chemicals, the rather ugly green lipped mussel has it in far greater quantities. New scientific studies are now being run into using Mobicosa to treat bowel disorders, skin conditions even asthma and stomach ulcers."
Here is the link to the story:
I've found an American link for the product:
