The only vitamin or herb I've had help has been EGCG. It helped me relax my gut. Licorice also seemed to help for reduction of inflamation.

I'll give you my experience.  Vit D has helped to combat fatigue, and vit E has helped soothe my intestines.  Digestive enzymes are helping to break food down, and the ever present probiotic helps in general breaking food down, reducing gas and cramping, and helping to regulate bms.  I also take fiber caps to help bulk up my stool so I don't get the loose stuff every day.  I've tried other supplements, but so far the above are the only ones that i've noticed any difference with.  Hopefully this helps you out.

My list of helpful vitamins and naturals are bee propolis, probiotics, fibre supplements, vitamins A, C-Calcium Ascorbate (I take Vitamin B12 too but that was for my onset of nerve damage not in anyway aiding with my bowel activity) and chamomile tea. I don't take any oral RX because I'm either allergic or non-responsive which I sometimes think is actually a blessing in diguise since I don't have any awful side effect (or any at all for that matter) from the above mentioned.

Usually what works for some doesn't work for all and often it's a combination of things that work better than just one thing.  I guess I should also add that altering my diet (avoiding all processed foods/beverages, fast foods, caffeine, animal fats and refined sugar/artificial sweetners has also had a huge impact for the better).


My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
