I am fairly certain that it is this polysaccharide, not the good bacteria in VSL, that is irritating me. It's better since I mix the stuff with applesauce, instead of Activia (which unfortunately contains sugar and corn starch); but I ate 100% by the book yesterday, and today I have been ... gastrically unhappy, again.

A Clinical Herbalist I know says that she has had good experience with FloraSmart and UltimateFlora. These Renew Life products have only a fraction of the 450 billion bacteria boasted by VSL#3, but perhaps that is enough. Looking into their inactives and additives.
