If you have been around this blog for a long time, you know the struggles that our family has had in the past with the symptoms of IBD (Irritable Bowel Disease) and we're not alone. You might even be surprised to hear that there are millions of people who deal with these debilitating symptoms every day. Now, let me first say - these are not just mild tummy aches or tummy troubles - these symptoms can literally take your life away from you. We are unbelievably thankful for how Jeremy is feeling now but there are still symptoms he has to manage even without the real diagnosis of IBD anymore.
Like most people looking to manage conditions such as, ulcerative colitis, IBS, and ileal pouches, you must think about the probiotic use in your life. With the stress that your digestive system is going through it’s important to speak with your doctor and help manage your condition with a probiotic specifically created for those with UC, IBS and ileal pouch.
Unlike other probiotics on pharmacy shelves, VSL#3® is a high-potency probiotic medical food that is clinically proven in the dietary management of IBS, UC and ileal pouch. While many people are familiar with the general term “probiotics,” most do not understand the importance of knowing which specific strain of live lactic acid bacteria should be used for based on specific conditions. It is suggested that adults should take at least one billion cells (also called colony-forming units or CFU’s) daily. VSL#3® has at least 112.5 billion CFU’s. Probiotics work in three areas of the gut: the microbial barrier, chemical barrier and physical barrier.
While Jeremy did have to take the most extreme "treatment" to manage his Ulcerative Colitis we are so unbelievably thankful for that decision and now he is focus on continuing his gut health Hearing about VSL#3®, he was happy to hear there was a probiotic medical food for these specific chronic conditions.
So now that Jeremy has found the management tool for his IBD and pouch he is enjoying this beautiful summer weather out in the pool with the kiddos. With no worries about having ulcerative colitis issues or pouch frustrations he is able to be the dad he wants to be. Active, healthy and feeling great.
Not all probiotics are the same, Discover the Difference with VSL#3®! VSL#3® is a proprietary formulation of a mix of 8 strains of live lactic acid bacteria, making it one of the few probiotics with this many strains. VSL#3® is at least 10 times more potent than the average probiotic. VSL#3® products must be refrigerated to maintain potency, are gluten-free, Kosher and Halal certified.
I love seeing my family so happy and I hope that VSL#3® may help bring some relief and management to others who are going through similar IBD symptoms that we witnessed with Jeremy for years.
