For people with IBS
How VSL#3® Capsules are Different

VSL#3® provides more probiotic support than other leading over-the-counter (OTC) brands:

Different probiotics provide different types, or strains, of "good" bacteria in different amounts. The number of good bacteria is measured in "colony-forming units" (CFU).

VSL#3®contains 8 strains of good bacteria while many OTC brands contain only 1 strain
Scientific studies show that a combination of many different types of good bacteria may give you better results
  • VSL#3® contains 8 strains of good bacteria, while many OTC brands contain only 1 strain
VSL#3®Capsules contain 112.5 billion CFU, significantly higher than what is found in many OTC products
Studies also show that probiotics need to remain alive in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract in high enough amounts to have a positive effect
  • VSL#3® is refrigerated to keep the probiotics alive
  • VSL#3® Capsules contain 112.5 billion CFUs, significantly higher than what is found in many OTC products so more can survive in the GI tract and have a beneficial effect
All formulations of VSL#3(R) are lactose-free
