If flax is like psyllium, it will take a while to get the gas under control. Probably took me 3-4 weeks. I'm really happy I stuck with it. It (psyllium) really helped me regulate my bowel movements. Since going into remission, I have 1 (sometimes two) bm's within an hour of waking up and I'm good for the day. Just like clockwork. Mary
Thanks Mary, I am not taking it for UC. I am closing in on 2 years of remission with over 1 year of med free. Once daily in the morning for me and since taking elite-XT its 99% like it was pre-UC. Solid tubes.
I am taking it because it helps the omega-3,6,9 balance and is good for the brain.
Maybe your right about
3-4 weeks, I dont recall any problems with psyllium but perhaps I should crank it down a notch and wait for the internal bacteria to catchup.
