I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis in my twenties after many tests. It is a disease that mostly affects woman so it took a while for the diagnosis. My options were to go on permanent chronic medication or have an operation to have part of my intestines removed which meant I could ultimately end up with a bag. I opted to try and control it with my diet. LIFEGAIN® has been a wonderful supplement for me. My wife and I have a smoothie every morning and I add Lifegain to the smoothie. Would definitely recommend it to sufferers of autoimmune diseases.
