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. The number of good bacteria is measured in "colony-forming units" (CFU).
- 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
- VSL#3® is very diverse and contains multiple different strains of bacteria from the Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium and Streptococcus genera.
- VSL#3® is refrigerated to keep the probiotics alive.
- VSL#3® is a probiotic medical food intended for the dietary management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Ulcerative Colitis (UC), and an ileal pouch. VSL#3® is intended to be used under medical supervision.
