Interesting set of supplements reviewed with references to research data: here

Another article mentions omega-3 fatty acids in combination with quercitin vs. this article that suggests vitamin E.

I should have mentioned - there is a botanical called Boswellia (Listed at the bottom of the article) that was compared with sulfasalazine in a trial. It produced a 70% remission rate while sulfasalazine produced only a 40% remission rate. I had barely heard of Boswellia and I had no idea that it might be so effective.

I liked this article so much I book marked it!!!! I especially loved the info on anti-inflammatory diet (which is basically what I do) and of course the bee propolis which I've been using for 5 yrs straight now and my GI is very impressed and urges me to continue with it, he reassured me that it's 100% non toxic and is an excellent source of dietary supplementaion since us IBDers don't necessarily get all the nutrients we need via food's great, so long as you're not allergic to bees, and pregnant/breast-feeding women should also avoid it.

Thanks for sharing!

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