According to Medicine.net, a probiotic is "a microbe that protects its host and prevents disease."
VSL#3 studies show that:
- VSL#3 provides a protective barrier in the intestinal digestive system.
- The way VSL#3 works by taking hold or colonizing in the digestive tract with an ideal number and type of probiotic or good bacteria. These good flora, stick to the walls of the gut wall and actually form a protective barrier on the inner layer of the digestive tract that protects it from pathogens. Bad bacteria, yeast and other organisms give off toxic substances and these can result in a lessening in the number as well as the type of bacteria in the intestine. This affect people's intestinal health dramatically.
- There are thousand of billions of bacteria that live in the human intestinal tract. These bacteria are called commensal bacteria. We can modify the gut flora in a positive way by literally 'flooding' the GI tract with 'loading' doses i.e. extremely large numbers of probiotic bacteria. VSL#3 is a probiotic preparation that does deliver enough good flora (bacteria) to benefit the GI tract in patients with serious intestinal disorders.
- They have shown that VSL#3 probiotic bacteria definitely make it all the way through the digestive tract, even if some amount is lost during transit.
