prebiotics? or probiotics?

The best prebiotics to take are fibre.

The best probiotics are subjective...whatever agrees.

I take Natural Factors Protec. The other one I take on occasion is the Primadophilus Reuteri Pearls.

What ones have you tried?

*Heather* Status: mild flare enemas tapered to every 2nd night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~UC meds: Asacol (3 x2 daily); Salofalk enemas nightly for flares & taper to maintenance 
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed; Ranitidine (reflux);  Effexor XR 75mg(depression);  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma) 
~vitamins/minerals/supplementsProbiotics....(Natural Factors Protec, Primadophilus Reuteri Pearls, Natural Factors Ultimate). @ bedtime
~various digestive enzymes as needed; started Omega 3 
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!

I don't know what a prebiotic is but I do need to take some fiber. This morning I think I tore my backside with a firm stool. On the other hand, it's nice that it is firm for once.

for probiotics Ive been taking Primal Defense which seems to get negative reviews from a lot of people here and I take MegaFlora. I am always trying new things.

Diagnosed with proctitis in March 2007 - Treated with Canasa 2x Daily
December 08 - Began treating with Asacol 400mg (9 a day)
