The Perfect Probiotic & Prebiotic Combination For Good Stomach Health
IBS Healthcare is launching two newly developed products as the perfect combination to obtain good stomach health – without the high levels of sugar of some probiotic yoghurt drinks.

The combination of the probiotic VSL#3 (£44.00 exc VAT for 3x10) and prebiotic Bi²muno (£15.50 exc VAT for 3x30) helps to achieve a good microfloral balance within the stomach – something that is essential for good health, especially for those recovering from constipation, diarrhoea symptoms or other symptoms including Bloating or Flatulence often found in IBS and IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease or Crohn’s Disease) sufferers.
Traditional probiotic yoghurt based drinks are proving very popular yet the best way to achieve this balance is to deliver a high dose of live bacteria through a probiotic, combined with a prebiotic which then helps the bacteria to grow and become colonised once in the intestine.
Indeed, evidence shows that the yoghurt based drinks contain high levels of sugar and don’t provide the necessary high concentration of bacteria needed, with a recent FSA study demonstrating that the bacteria from these drinks don’t make it into the intestine where the bacteria needs to be in order to be effective. This study suggested that few of the bacteria in the probiotics studied could survive transit through the acidic contents of the stomach and, of those that did get through, there was little evidence that they changed the balance of bacteria in the gut.
The combination of VSL#3, the world’s most concentrated probiotic, with Bi²muno, the latest prebiotic to be launched onto the market (which was developed by scientists at the University of Reading) offers a new, more effective route to achieving good stomach health.
With 6 million IBS sufferers across the UK, these products are sure to be a popular choice for those wanting a stomach supplement with proven efficacy, without compromising on sugar content.
