Dietary Management of Ulcerative Colitis, Gastroenterological Conditions Aided With New Probiotic
ExeGi Pharma, based in Gaithersburg, Maryland, recently announced the launch of Visbiome and Visbiome Extra Strength, the company’s new probiotic formulations for the dietary management of gastroenterological conditions such as ulcerative colitis, an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Visbiome, a probiotic consisting of eight strains of live, freeze-dried lactic acid bacteria, includes the innovative blend that Prof. Claudio De Simone, M.D., Ph.D., developed – also known as the De Simone Formulation. It is therapeutically equivalent to the VSL#3 probiotic blend developed previously. Visbiome is a clinical food prepared for medical purposes that delivers highly-concentrated anti-inflammatory probiotic bacteria in order to normalize the flora in the gut and provide considerable relief for a sustained period of time from gastroenterological symptoms, including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), chronic pouchitis, and ulcerative colitis. "Patients who are managing conditions like ulcerative colitis, pouchitis and IBS often face a roller-coaster ride of ups and downs," Dr. Martin Floch, professor of medicine at Yale University and editor in chief of the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology said in a press release. "In my clinical practice, I've seen first-hand how the De Simone Formulation has helped my patients achieve stability in their conditions. It's so important that they can continue to access the formulation that we both trust and that's yielded tangible results." De Simone first partne

    It is not clear whether this probiotic is identical to VSL#3. Is it?

    A few years ago I tried VSL#3 for over a year and found no relief from my mild UC. This included several months using the prescription version of VSL#3.

    Also, the literature I have read is ambivalent about whether the delivery of probiotics to the colon is functional. Can anyone please refer me to some studies that cover this issue?

    My latest, and sadly perhaps my last, experience with probiotics was with Multi Flora Senior. Once again, I saw no improvement.
