I here translate from a Danish article - excuse me if my English ain't perfect:
 
Science have shown that patients with CU lack the chemical ingredient SAM (S-Adenosyl-Methionin), that helps break down sulfat rich ingrediences in the food.
I you can't do that (break it down) it triggers flares of the disease. It is thought to be a genetic failure that make the body unable to produce enough SAM. SAM can be purchased as SAMe, at least abroad.
On Vejle (Danish city) Hospital scientist have found that SAMe has a positive impact on CU. It's pretty expensive .........
 
SO can any one contribute to this information ????

Osteoarthritis is where a joint is overused and arthritis sets in. It is not an auto-immune condition but rather from overusage. I have it in my fingers and maybe my knees.

I can't comment on Sam e's usage in Uc though since I've never used it.

This could be true for those who are predisposed to Colits. However, I don't think it is the case for all people with Colitis. I don't have any issues with digesting sulfat rich foods.
