Currently taking Amazing Grass, raw reserve green superfood *blended* with orange 🍊 juice. So far its been helping (currently experiencing a flare). I also bought this ginger and lemon juice at Whole Foods as well as Aloe Vera juice. I use these juices for smoothies to pump more fruits and veggies in me, I feel a lot better and energized. Blending helps digest the food easier during a flare.

Seems to me they help a little after doing a round of antibiotics (replenishes gut bacteria). I wouldn't call them a miracle anything.

I've tried tons of brands, different types, taken them in the AM or PM, with and without food, and I don't see a difference in my symptoms. 

I asked my primary doc and he's all about them, however my GI doesn't think they help. 

So it's probably dependent on each individual person in my opinion.
