Suffering From IBS is Not Fun

Sharing is caring!


I have decided to take part in a program that I am hoping will help me and some of you as well. I have suffered from IBS for as long as I can remember and have sadly, just learned to live with it with no way to fight back. Regular probiotics don’t work for me, so I’m stepping it up for #VSL3TheJourneyBack. Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a painful digestive problem that dramatically effects what I am able to eat beyond my intolerance to gluten. I found out about VSL#3, a medical food that is gluten free, and works as a highly potent probiotic. I am going to try it for a few weeks and let you know how it goes.

I have read great things about VSL#3 and how it works and I am very excited to find out how much it will help me with the foods I would like to eat. It’s a serious probiotic that requires medical supervision. It is clinically proven in the dietary management of serious digestive issues like IBS, ulcerative colitis (UC) and ileal pouch. Only VSL#3 has been the subject of a collection of more than 170 studies and published in peer reviewed journals over the past 15 years. That means “tried and true.” Which is exactly why I’m stepping up to the dinner plate. VSL#3 is specially formulated to be 10 times more potent than the average probiotic. It has eight live strains of lactic acid bacteria to help patients like me with serious digestive conditions.


According to a Harris Poll* conducted on behalf of VSL#3, in which 607 U.S. adults ages 18+ who have been diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), ulcerative colitis (UC) or ileal pouch, roughly 2 in 5 IBS, UC, ileal pouch sufferers (41%) don’t understand which strain of probiotics is best to help manage their symptoms. Which makes it so difficult to treat because you might not have the right probiotics.
