By any chance are alot of you here purchasing bee propolis from puritans pride online????  I placed an order for some more today and it's on back-order for 2-3 weeks!!!! shocked
 
So I figured it must be all my IBD buddies filling orders for it causing a back-log on it...which honestly if that's the case I'm happy for all of you that are finding any success with it and hope it continues smilewinkgrin LOL!

I am getting it from the UK - one of the leading research centres on it. Very cheap and obviously very good clinical propolis.

I get it from puritans pride.  They just had  a buy 2 get 2 free promotion.  That may be the problem.  Sorry you have to wait, but you may find it at a health foods store near you.

Definitly works for me and my GI encourages me to continue with it since he said that even if it didn't help my symptoms it's still a great source of dietary nutrition, something IBDers may not get enough of via food alone.

Ya, I just did the buy one, get 2 free...but no worries about it being on back order, I have enough, I just like to re-order when I'm getting down to about 2 bottles...I think it's great if more and more are using it especially if they're benefitting from it...maybe I should ask puritans for kick-backs for boosting their sales eh?  LOL tongue

I buy it in cap form...it's a natural anti-inflammatory...if you're allergic to bees then avoid it and any other bee product.

For me it stopped all my bleeding, all my lower back pain, cut my BM's from 30+/day to 10/day (at the time when I started, I've since added more things, probiotics and altered my diet and now I go about 5 or less times a day), it cut my mucus way back.

I'm sure everyone's results differ, some have even gone into full remission from it.
