I have been using it for 2 weeks and have not noticed any difference apart from the first few days.... it then went back to square one despite religiously taking it night and day.

Diagnosis Oct 07 and then Aug 08: Inditerminate Patches of Mild Colitis (including Rectum) - Currently Minor Bleeding
Medication: 1000mg Asacol Enema, 800mg Asacol Tablets x 2 a day.

Try it, it works for some people. I have tried loads of this knd of stuff and it doesn't seem to work. The only thing I have noticed helps is Fibre, less stress and relaxation.

I buy the 500mg bottle and take one pill/cap 2 times a day, one with supper and one before bed...typically what works for some doesn't work for all, and how quickly it works for each person varies as well...it's still an excellent dietary supplement according to my GI even if it doesn't help with IBD symptoms.

Bee careful (pun intended) of bee-based products if you are allergic to bee stings or occasional pollen troubles. It may or may not cause adverse reactions in some individuals.

That is correct ucwarrior, I mentioned that in another post but forgot to mention it here...if you're allergic to bees avoid all bee products.

No, not allergic to bees.  Taking honey in my green tea now instead of sugar.

Christine, try it! I know that not everyone will benefit from it but many on here has. I was on it for 2 years and then it seemed to not work as well for me anymore. But I felt a ton better while on it. You won't know if it's going to work unless you give it a go and BP if fairly inexpensive.
