How It Works
VSL#3® is a highly concentrated blend of 8 live probiotic strains specifically chosen to survive in gastric fluid, bile, and pancreatic secretions. Studies have demonstrated that these probiotic strains arrive alive to colonize in the intestines.
This is important as studies have shown that the flora can reduce intestinal inflammation and lower colonic permeability and improve barrier junctions, which protects the intestinal tract.
Patients with IBD
It has been shown that patients with IBD have an imbalance of “good” and “bad” bacteria in their intestinal tract. By taking VSL#3®, the amount of good bacteria is increased allowing the balance of “good” and “bad” bacteria to be normalized.
