Cured my IBS
on February 4, 2011
I suffered from IBS - abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea and constipation - for four years. I took this probiotic (and then after that, the 200 billion one) for a month and I was completely back to normal! I didn't know what was wrong with me, and I had been on various medications that didn't do much (even antidepressants). But finally my doctor insisted that my only option left was probiotics. I had tried them before (several years back) but they had no effect. I had just taken the normal 1 or 2 billion CFU capsules. So I figured I might as well go big or go home, and I gave this one a try. Now I literally owe my life and happiness to these guys. I feel like sending them a $10,000 check! (would if I had the money). I hope some other people with IBS at least give this a try. I think IBS is caused by too many bad bacteria in the gut and not enough good. Its like warfare in there, you can't go to war with 100 soldiers. You have to have an army. There's no downsides to taking too much probiotics as far as I know, so don't cheap out like I did before and get wimpy 1 billion capsules.
