Probiotics the Easy Way, Shake it Up With VSL#3

Awhile back, I wrote about my success with VSL#3 to address my symptoms of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).  I am still using it and loving it. Today, I want to show you just how easy it is to use the high potency unflavored packets, which contain 450 billion bacteria per packet, making it a great way to get excellent results.  I think it is easy to get intimidated by something that is not in capsule form, and there really is no need for any sort of apprehension about that. The packets are super easy to mix up and do not affect the flavor or taste of your drink. As an aside, VSL#3 does offer a capsule, but they contain less bacteria at 112.5 billion.

VSL#3 probiotics

So, before I show you how easy it is, here is a bit about VSL#3.  VSL#3 is a high-potency probiotic medical food that is clinically proven in the dietary management of the serious digestive issues irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), ulcerative colitis (UC) and ileal pouch. It has been clinically demonstrated to reduce bloating, gassiness and discomfort in patients such as myself with IBS. It is specially formulated with eight strains of live lactic acid bacteria and is 10 times more potent more than the average probiotic.  VSL#3 recently removed any trace of dairy from the products, making it one of the few dairy-free probiotics available for IBS and UC sufferers who also have a lactose/milk intolerance.

I have been using VSL#3 for almost 6 months. I find that it helps a lot with my IBS symptoms, especially in connection with physical activity, which would often trigger my symptoms. Since I am a rather busy person, I love how I can use a shaker bottle to mix VSL#3 with my morning drink and then drink it on the go. I often drink it on my drive to work or on my way to the trail to run. On work days I mix it with milk or a smoothie, and on run days I mix it with my endurance drink. You can mix it with any cold, non-carbonated beverage or stir it into yogurt or applesauce.  It mixes up quickly and completely. I never notice it in my drink.

Let me show you just how easy it is:

VSL#3 is available at your local pharmacy. Please ask your pharmacist for VSL#3 as VSL#3 must be kept refrigerated behind the pharmacy counter to maintain potency.
