I've had luck helping symptoms of my colitis by creating energized/ EZ water. The positive health effect for me lasts a day or two. I figure after that the EZ diminishes or is used up. Hard to say.
I listened to an interview with of Dr. Pollack on EZ water. There are several ways to make EZ and apparently taking probiotics is a method. Don't know if that could account for your observation but thought to mention.
The interview and write up with mention on probiotics can be seen here:
