Re: 95% Improvement with VSL3

Gram,
Acidophilus is a very well known probiotic supplement that is even added to most brands of yogurt. And, It helps some but it is not a probiotic that is made especially for IBS.
Also, acidophilus is destroyed by heat and stomach acids so unless you get 1 like Pearls that have a protected coating they don't work as good as they could work for IBS.

And I have read here that they don't work for some people-- IBS is not the same for everone.
