I'm a UC dude so Im sorry to intrude on your forum. I would still like to hear

1) Have any of you tried probiotics and did they help?
2) Which ones and how much and how often and how long total?
Waiting to see if I'm cured - no symptoms since probiotics started

Probiotics 16 strains (vsl#3 + ultimate multi probiotic) - 475 billion per day. Pre-biotics 1x a day. No sugar.
L-glutamine, elm powder, vit b & folic acid

We welcome anyone with bad guts :)

I've had some success with VSL#3, and my latest GI recommended Align. Both of these need to be special-ordered (you can't just get 'em at the health food store). Very promising studies backing them up!

I've been taking Culturelle and Kyo-Dophilus daily for well over a year. They have been a tremendous help... I'll be taking them indefinitely. (I do buy them online where I can find better deals.)

Primal Defense Ultra made by Garden of Life is the best and works incredible.  Its has numerous combination of acidophilus.  You can buy it at swanson vitamins
