Everyone's gut is home to billions of bacteria, and it is important that there is a healthy balance between good and harmful types (microbial balance). Probiotics are living microorganisms (often called good bacteria) that may provide a health benefit when consumed.
VSL#3® is a refrigerated probiotic that is potent, diverse, and viable. VSL#3® is up to 45 times more potent than leading prescribed OTC dietary supplements. There are 8 different strains of live bacteria in VSL#3® with the ability to survive the harsh environment of the stomach. Scientific studies suggest a combination of multiple types of good bacteria may provide benefits that cannot be achieved with single-strain probiotics.
VSL#3® 900 has been shown to benefit patients with UC, IBS, and pouchitis.
VSL#3® has been widely used for more than 15 years and is recommended by 8 gastroenterology associations, including the American College of Gastroenterology and the Triennial Yale/Harvard Workshop.
VSL#3® Is Easy to Take
The powder packets are designed to be mixed into water, juice, or foods like applesauce or yogurt, but VSL#3® should not be mixed into hot drinks or hot foods as heat can destroy the bacteria. Once added to food, VSL#3® must be consumed immediately. VSL#3® should be kept in the refrigerator, but can be left at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.
VSL#3® is available by prescription and can be found behind the counter where your pharmacist will dispense it.
