Germinated Barley Foodstuff (Mai Ya) for Ulcerative Colitis

There have been studies done on GBF that show it reduces clinical activity and mucosal inflammation in Ulcerative Colitis. I know that every time I have gone into remission, I've started taking this supplement. I recently had another flare, which was getting progressively worse, but as soon as I started taking Mai Ya, the urgency decreased, and is decreasing day by day. Just for clarification, Mai Ya is the Chinese herb that, I think, corresponds directly to Germinated Barley Foodstuff, on which the studies were done. I've been taking two grams twice daily (one gram of the supplement equals 10 grams of the bulk herbs.)
