I'd go ahead and grab the 250 mg of the extract, I started with extract before I weened onto pills, I was in really bad shape when I started with the BP, going 30+ times a day, with lots of blood and severe lower back pain with every BM and tons of mucous too. At least it will be a start until your pills arrive too. The kind I bought instructed to add a few drops (can't remember exactly how many) to a small glass of juice, it tasted pretty rank but was worth it.
bee propolis caps 500mg one cap twice/day
omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day
Prodiem fibre supplement one cap before bed
I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.
