Probiotics have been found to be helpful to the human digestive system. The human body doesn’t produce bacteria but it does need them for proper digestion. The body contains bacteria but it may need more for improved health. Taking VSL #3 probiotic supplements helps provide the digestive system with good bacteria that is necessary for optimal health. While some foods contain a certain amount of these types of bacteria, they are typically not present in enough quantities to be helpful. Instead, you can take VSL #3 probiotic supplements to increase the number of good bacteria in your digestive tract.
How VSL #3 Probiotic Supplements Work
Probiotics that are contained in foods are generally limited to one strain. Eating these can be beneficial, but not as beneficial as taking a supplement. That is because VSL #3 probiotic supplements contain a variety of bacteria strains rather than a single one. Bacteria that is ingested needs to be able to survive strong stomach acids such as gastric acid that is present in the system.
The bacteria that has been selected for VSL #3 probiotic supplements has been chosen specifically for its ability to survive the gastric acid, bile and pancreatic secretions of the body so they are able to colonize the body’s gut. The formulation was created by De Simone to include several strains including lactobacilli and bifidobacteria and others.
The bacteria contained in probiotics are freeze-dried so that it is reconstituted only through your body’s warmth. This helps to ensure that they are intact until they arrive at their destination inside your digestive system. The product contains the highest concentration of probiotics available, with 450 billion per sachet. Most others have a much lower count. The higher concentrations help ensure that the bacteria will reach your gut and provide you with useful benefits. Some supplements are rendered useless because the number of bacteria that actually reach your gut are very low.
