I have always found that probiotics are useful for helping to alleviate UC symptoms. But this particular strain, Lactobacillus Reuteri (NCIMB 30242), seems to be head and shoulders better than anything else that I have tried.
Other strains of lactobacillus reuteri such as found in Primadolphilus etc., seem to be OK but nothing seems to be as effective as NCIMB 30242 - National Collections of Industrial, Marine and Food Bacteria.
I heard about
powdered psyllium seed thru this forum and it has been great. Others have praised pseed too but there are also others who dislike it. I am sure it is the same with NCIMB 30242, some will like it, some won't. But if it is half as beneficial as pseed then it could be a valuable aid for maintaining remission for many of us.
Please let us know if anyone else has tried it. Thanks/www.google.com/search?q=Lactobacillus+Reuteri+%28NCIMB+30242%29&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8www.lef.org/Vitamins-Supplements/item01821/FlorAssist-Heart-Health-Probiotic
