Probiotics and IBS by Lauren Castalano

Many people I speak with suffer from IBS which is why I chose this subject today. Below I have attached clinical studies as well as information on the probiotic brand used.

Vsl #3
Price for 60 count capsules: $61
Free shipping use code: SHIPVSL3

The reason I chose to highlight this particular brand of probiotics is due to:
-2 dozen publications available online to read including clinical trials in humans. I will post 2 of the studies below.
-Shows efficacy in treating IBS and Crohn’s disease

Highlights from the trial:
-25 patients with diarrhea-predominant IBS were randomly assigned to receive VSL#3 powder (450 billion lyophilized bacteria/day) or matching placebo 2x daily for 8 weeks.

-VSL#3 appears to be promising in the relief of abdominal bloating in patients with diarrhea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome.
