I believe that supplements have helped me with my UC.  I am not fully in remission but I am better.  I view them as components in my remission strategy.

I use:

VSL3, Fish Oil, Bromelian, Boswellia, Calcium with D, Cinnamon, Slippery Elm, Vitamin E, Biotin, Ultra Chromium Picolinate, GNC Super Greens and Fruits, Digestive Advantage, Flax seeds, Ginger Tea, Green Tea, Accupuncture, and mind/body combination therapy.

I probably missed one! hehehe

love to all

Holy smokes, Bob, you've got everything coveredl :-)   but I don't see tumeric, I take that as well.
Dx:  2006
Meds:  None so far. Garlic works to ease flares. My GI laughed when I told him and said it was just coincidence.
Diet:  Regular fresh garlic, Biobest yogurt daily, Omega 3 supplements, very limited junk food, carbs and processed food, low fat diet.  Lots of fresh fruit and veggies (limited potatoes).

Wow, Thats unbelievable.  I dont know how you manage to take all that.  I struggle, and I dont take anything near the amount you do..
Do you stick to a rigid time schedule for taking them and leave a gap in between? Or do you take most of them at the same time?
