i take benebiotics and jarrow sach boulardi.
I am not sure it has done anything to help my uc symptoms. But I may be an oddball. I used vsl3 DS for about 9 months with no change in my uc symptoms either and vsl seems to help alot of people here. When i ran out of vsl i didnt use any probiotics and i was no better no worse, I have also tried natures way primadophillus reutri with no change in symptoms.
I do plan to keep taking the benebiotics, i like that it has the multi strains and the enteric coating etc.
I also recently starting drinking kefir, which is probiotic rich, for breakfast and i am making on fermenting my own which is supposed to have way more probiotics than store bought.
