Since everyone is different then it is no surprise that the specific supplements you listed don't help and can make you feel worse. Not everyone is compatible with all the meds either, for example some people are allergic to mesalamines. Since I myself have problems with even certain foods aggravating my symptoms, then I am not surprised that certain supplements such as cayenne can give you trouble.
Have you ever had your blood levels of vitamin D checked? Google “vitamin D Crohn's” and you will find dozens of studies indicating how helpful it is. But of course nothing matters unless you find that it helps you.
More and more doctors are making blood tests for vit D as a standard routine. The optimum range is 40-60 ng/ml with over 100 ng/ml flirting with overdose. If you are like most of us then you will likely find that you are deficient.
