95% Improvement with VSL3 Probiotic
WORKS. It really has changed my life and I was amazed at how fast it worked. It
sounds too good to be true but is working wonders for me. The research that has
been done at Cedar's and the Mayo Clinic as well as other major research
centers is all so Positive. This is from Cedars Sinai :"There is evidence
that probiotics such as VSL#3 have a role in the management of inflammatory intestinal disorders such as
pouchitis, and increasing evidence that they may alleviate some of the symptoms
associated with IBS," said Jay W. Marks, M.D. a board certified internist
and gastroenterologist from UCLA/Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. "Recent
studies have demonstrated that probiotics, including VSL#3, are safe and have a promising therapeutic benefit for IBS
This is a probiotic that I found after searching online for SOMETHING,... anything that would help with this. I had been taking probiotics that I thought were heavy duty but nothing that came close to the amounts in VSL3, which along with the "type" of strain has worked wonders for me. It's about $40 per bottle which lasts about a month if you take 2 per day (you can go to 4 if 2 doesn't work)... but it works, at least for me where nothing has worked. But it has improved my IBS, which I've had for 25 years so dramatically, it's like I have a new life. My IBS was getting to the point that leaving for work in the morning was a nightmare, going out to eat was a nightmare...I tried the VSL3 at one pill for a week and noticed a 50% improvement and after a couple weeks I upped it to 2 pills per day and what a change. All I can say is I'm having regular movements and I'm confident when I leave the house that I'm going to make it to where I'm going which before was an anxiety riddled ride. I will still have trouble if I go several days without eating regular meals, ie. eating next to nothing for a few days and then having a huge meal, but it's NOT even close to the problem I would have if I did this before going on these pills.
I tried another probiotic that I got online but it caused massive constipation and it helped but not like this one. This is also for Ulcerative Colitis at the higher doses. I never thought something could help so much but it has. I've gone from daily problems to maybe once every couple of months and much milder problems if I have them. I have so many other medical problems and the IBS was getting so much worse, and I was getting severely depressed. This probiotic has VERY HIGH doses of several probiotics and I did goo*gle some research done on it that were very encouraging. It is so worth trying if someone is about to give up on this damn disorder. I also notice when I cut back or forget, after about a week, things start to get a little "off" so it's not a cure but sometimes it feels like one to me.
I wanted to add this for folks that are getting it from their doctors. The prescribed dose is double strength from what I take and if you're experiencing bloating, nausea etc then cut the doseages back and start off slower.
