From my understanind probiotics are good for anyone especially UCers because it's good bacteria that is entering your gut. Our main issue is that our immune system is attacking our our intestines becasue it sees our bacteria as bad...the promotion of good bacteria (probiotics) should help.
I started taking a Jaro-Douphilus pill 2 weeks ago that has 3.4 Billion CFU. It's hard to say if I've seen any difference because im weaning off of prednisone from a flare but I've heard it regulates your ugrency and such. Even if it doesnt do anything at least you have a lot good bacteria in your system.
I'm no expert but I hope that helps.
