Acidophilus

Hi all, I was diagnosed (after having a Colonoscopy and Endoscopy) with IBS in 1996 and initially suffered quite badly. A few years later I read an article about Seven Seas Multibionta Multivitamins and have to say that they improved my condition no end and I take them to this day and will never stop taking them, they also support my immune system and were voted, along with one other brand, the best and most effective multivitamin on the market.

Since around 2008 I have been suffering with more work stress and didn't know what to do, I took Acidophilus back then and they didn't seem to do anything then I read a post on here and the person said that they took them throughout the day at mealtimes. I bought some a couple of months ago now and started taking them at mealtimes and have to say that they have so far improved my condition - I have now dropped to 2 tablets a day and they seem to be keeping the condition at bay - if it gets bad again I will up the dose.

Just thought that sharing this may help some people but I know we are all different and I count myself as lucky as so far I've not suffered with IBS D.

Best of luck to everyone on this forum.

  • I have taken Symprove daily for a couple of years - look at the King's College trials. Most probiotics contain so few viable organisms they are useless. Symprove has good endorsements from the medics generally.

  • I took symprove but made my IBS-d worse if that's possible ! I was very hopeful after reading the study's .

  • I am mostly IBS/C - maybe that makes a difference. I suppose that's why recommending anything for IBS is so difficult.

  • I also found that Symprove exacerbated the diarrhoea and the pain.

  • I think I maybe just lucky but IBS is so difficult to treat that the same thing doesn't work for all. Unfortunately some people don't seem to be able to find anything that works for them. I count myself as lucky as I mainly have IBS C if anything, my main problem is wind and pain. Best of luck to you

  • Hi I've just read your post,when you say IBS do you mean chronic IBS.Also I was just looking through the seven seas multi vitamins and there's quite a few which one are you taking?

  • I take the Multibionta Vitality and have been taking them for a very long time now. When I first started taking them these were the only ones you could get. I always buy them on a 3 for 2 offer. They are cheapest in Sainsburys but Boots do them on a 3 for 2 quite frequently. Best of luck.

  • Thank you for your reply,and same to you good luck.

  • Thank you and hope you find something that eases the symptons
