VSL#3 for ulcerative colitis
VSL#3 is a high-potency probiotic with 450 billion live bacteria per packet. It is a medical food for the dietary management of patients with ulcerative colitis, an ileal pouch, and irritable bowel syndrome.
It works by colonizing the GI tract with optimal quantities and types of probiotic bacteria. These bacteria adhere to the walls of the GI tract and form a barrier that protects the inner layer of the gut from bad bacteria and other toxic substances that can cause inflammation. Using a high concentration of eight different strains of specially selected beneficial bacteria, VSL#3 produces an optimal composition of good bacteria, delivering relief from symptoms and enhancing the health of the GI tract.
There is no prescription required to purchase this product but it is intended to be used under the supervision of a physician.
What is the recommended daily intake of VSL#3?
The suggested intake is 1 to 4 packets daily or as directed by your physician. VSL#3 comes in a lemon-flavored powder that is intended to be mixed with at least 4 ounces of cold water and consumed. An unflavoured powder is also available that can be mixed with yogurt, ice cream, apple sauce, or any other cold food.
VSL#3 should not be mixed or consumed with hot drinks or food as the heat can deactivate the lactic acid bacteria.
What are probiotics?
Probiotics are cultures of beneficial bacteria (flora) that are normally present in a healthy digestive tract. Probiotic bacteria perform a variety of important functions in the body, including colonizing and protecting the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, modulating intestinal inflammation, and reducing colonic permeability.
