VSL#3® is a high-potency probiotic medical food with the highest available concentration of beneficial live bacteria, which collectively act as a Living Shield™ in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. It contains 8 different strains of beneficial bacteria that were specially selected to produce an optimal composition of beneficial bacteria.

VSL#3® works by colonizing the GI tract with optimal quantities and types of probiotic ("good”) bacteria. These bacteria adhere to the walls of the GI tract and form a barrier that protects the inner layer of the gut from pathogenic ("bad”) bacteria and other toxic substances that can cause inflammation by modulating intestinal defense mechanisms. In addition, VSL#3® modulates a variety of substances that are involved in the healing of inflammation. For example, VSL#3® has been shown to induce the production of interleukin-10, an important "chemical messenger” that suppresses inflammation.


Evidence suggests that VSL#3® reduces intestinal permeability by tightening up the junctions between the cells in the outer layer of the intestine (the epithelium).


Suggested Dosage:  Take 1 - 16  capsules (swallow or mix into a non-carbonated drink) or as suggested by your physician.   Bloating can occur during the first few days following the start of VSL#3 consumption. This is usually a transitory phenomenon due to the changing intestinal micro flora. If you experience bloating, you may need to reduce your daily intake to allow this adjustment
