My mom has had great luck with probiotic supplements, and uses them to treat a variety of different health issues, mainly, reccuring bladder infections and IBS. She uses NOVA probiotics (the 55 formula) daily they work very well she says. Good luck!View Thread
My dad has been diagnosed with IBS a few years ago, and I know that his favorite brand is NOVA Probiotics , he uses their Ultra Strength formula, which he says really helps. Whichever brand you do end up going with, make sure this brand is totally transparent about its ingredients and dosages, it's really important to know what you're taking. What really helps with NOVA is that the supplements have 14 different strains of probiotics and one prebiotic, so that really makes a difference. Good luck!View Thread
