Hi everyone i have UC and recovering from a 3 months flare here
i want to know based on your experience what are the good probiotics brands that helped with flare and remission. I started Mutaflor two days ago cant tell the difference yet.
Thank you!

  1. Hi I have gone through many different brands of probiotics and other people I have talked to about them have also gone through many. I think the problem is that with IBD everyone is different and not all probiotics work for everyone. I personally don't use them anymore, due to expense and could not find one that worked, but from others I have talked to, probiotics with Lactobacillus acidophilus worked the best and just that, nothing added.

    1. you can try Florastar company. i have been using for the past 18 months and it works well for me.

      1. I know everyone is different than everyone has different issues for me probiotics only made me more constipated again everybody has different issues just expressing what it did for me praying for you

        1. I know research shows that probiotics aren't useful for people with inflammatory bowel disease, unless it's pouchitis (inflammation after surgery to create a Jpouch which replaces the rectum/colon). Having said that, I've seen people with IBD say they personally find them (many different brands) useful. Because IBD is as individual as we are, it really is so difficult to make recommendations!
          Personally, they didn't help. Even when I had them prescribed for pouchitis.
          I'd be interested to hear whether you tried some that you found useful.
