Not sure if this has been discussed before but these articles mention Glucosamine as helping with UC.

This article (both sites are essentially the same article) describes the "hardened outer shell part of shrimp, crab and lobsters" as bovine cartilage, then goes on to classify UC as a "stomach disorder." Since bovine cartilage comes from cattle and related species, and UC has nothing to do with the stomach, I don't lend much credence to this writer.

Glucosamine have some documented success in easing the pain, swelling and stiffness of osteoarthritis, however. Just an example of judging what you read on the internet with caution. Anyone can blog anything and no one vets the accuracy or even safety of the recommendations.
