For people with UC
How VSL#3® Powders are Different

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

Different probiotics provide different types, or strains, of "good" bacteria in different amounts compared with VSL#3®. The number of good bacteria is measured in "colony-forming units" (CFU).

VSL#3® contains 8 different 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 different strains of good bacteria, while the other leading OTC brands contain only 1 strain
VSL#3® Powders contain up to 900 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® Powders contain up to 900 billion CFU, significantly higher than what is found in the other leading OTC products so more can survive in the GI tract and have a beneficial effect
All formulations of VSL#3(R) are lactose-free
All formulations of VSL#3® are lactose-free
