I was taking a teaspoon in a glass of water once a day for 3 weeks - no help, and I think I read somewhere that L glutamine may cause diarrhea in some cases?
Actually, l-glutamine helps control diarrhea and, if anything, would be more likely to cause constipation at doses too high for the individual.
After extensive research into many many things, I have found the following supplements are directly linked to help IBD:
VSL#3 or Natren Probiotic
Omega 3 Fish Oil
Yep, those are the things that have worked well for me and there's plenty of research and info out there on each one, explaining why they are helpful in the treatment of IBD.
Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis spring 1999.
Maintenance dose sulfasalazine. Probiotics, l-glutamine, vitamin D and fish oil caps. George's aloe vera juice. Oregano oil antibiotic, antiviral, antifungal. Mostly grain-free and dairy-free diet. Long-term remission with only minor blips.
