Until recently, it was available only by prescription. Now, it is readily available on Amazon.
VSL # 3 was initially used to repopulate a healthful bacteria flora into the GI tracts of individuals inflicted with Chron’s and Ulcerative Colitis. VSL # 3 is good stuff. You can easily Google VSL # 3 to learn about its unique profile.
I take VSL # 3, myself.
Ditto what MissMolly (Karen) wrote. My gastro recommended it two years ago - no other brands, just VSL#3. Amazon is my BFF but I personally wouldn't buy it on Amazon because VSL#3 needs to be refrigerated, I believe. When I buy it, I always have to go to the pharmacy counter because they store it in the frig there, not on the shelves. I buy it at Walgreens and Costco. Usually Walgreens will have a $5 off coupon and it ends up being the same price as Costco.
