ive seen alot of commericals about the probiotic pearls...and i remember ppl on here saying that they take them...i read the descriptions on all of them, and they all say something along the lines of helping constipation...the last thing i need is increasing the number of times i go to the bathroom, so i dont understand which of these probiotics would be good for someone with left sided uc???

Probiotics help reestablish healthy gut flora and will help normalize bowel function. In other words, correcting bowel dysbiosis will help both constipation and diarrhea.

It's pretty much trial and error, some work great for some people while they don't seem to do much for others so you pretty much have to keep trying some until you find which work best for you, a good start is one that I used called Primadophilu Reuteri made by natures way, they come in pearls, powder or pill I prefer the pill form and they have guaranteed intestinal release, only one/day is needed and they're affordable, only downside is they must be kept in the fridge, but still worth it, they also aid with vaginal health for women and high cholesterol as well as lactose intolerance, I no longer have to use Lactaid products because of this probiotic and it helps with my IBS and my IBD.
