What's the best IBS probiotic?

Asked by usaloveorleaveit (159points) January 12th, 2015

What’s the best IBS probiotic for the price? No ads or sales pitch please. Just looking for honest reviews. I’ve had severe ibs for 3 years and need a strong probiotic that will survive stomach acid and make it to my intestines. Thanks.

Ask your pharmacist.

I have only tried Colon Health and Digestive Advantage. They help me with lactose intolerance, but they do not last more than 2 days. Works longer than Lactaid pills, though.

I love GoodBellies. You can get it at Whole Foods and other good grocers.

What are your symptoms?

There isn’t a “best” because all of our bodies metabolize in different ways – we all have different guts.

I have used Advocare’s probiotic, called Probiotic Restore, and it has worked fine for me. But I am just one person with one gut.

My chiropractor just recommended insync. He said to make sure you buy one from a cooler… as the shelf-stable ones are more inert.

this cured my IBS. I don’t even have to take them now. Don’t get it from Amazon though. Get it from the chiller at your health food store. It must stay refrigerated.

I have yet to develop a routine where I take the probiotic regularly; since it stays in the fridge, I tend to forget it. So in all honesty, I can’t say how that one formula is. I personally choose MegaFood supplements, because their ingredients are sourced from food and aren’t synthetic – and they’ve been doing this since 1973, so it’s not someone trying to catch the ‘real foods’ trend, it’s some of those who started the movement. Most of their products are organic, or at least certified GMO-free, and/or gluten-free and some are even certified vegan. They recently started a transparency initiative, so people can see the products being made.
