Waiting for response from Nestle on Omega 3

Just contacted Nestle Nutritionals in England. Waiting for an email back. Asked if there has been any evidence to show that TGF-B2 would help with our situation, and if so what would be a clinically beneficial amount and where can we get it. The supplement for people w/ Chrohns is 300 kcal per 8 oz, w/ a theraputic dose being 2-4 servings a day for Chrohns. That's an awful lot of extra kcal. Boyfriend has horrendous Chrohns and AS and says it tastes just like milk. Supposedly the hormone is from unpasturized milk and cow colestrum, yummy. Wonder if we can't get it somehow in pill form. The liquid supplement also requires MD supervision, which an MD most likely will not agree to w/out a clinical trial proving eficacy in abdominal adhesions. Also asked if they felt Omega3 would help, recommended clinical dose, and how to obtain that.

We'll wait and see how much of this info they can give us w/ out being bound up legally.
