No problem guys. I was so excited that something seems to be working I couldn't wait to tell others about it!
USE2BAGODDESS - I hope my system doesn't get used to the PB8 anytime soon! I don't think I could afford to take double or triple the dose. I've heard about aloe juice before but never tried it, How does it taste?
When I first started to use the PB 8 it worked great. Then it seemed like it didn't work as well. I still have some and take it, but have to take 5-8 pills at a time to get any benefit.
I wonder if it is just my system or could it be less effective the longer you take it? Perhaps my system had such a deficit going that when I first started taking it my system was like "YEAH!" now it is "oh, hey guys over there with the others."
Hey, when your 9lb yorkie out poops you for more than 2 years you have to develop a sense of humor; however, weird it may it become!
I have found that 1/2C of aloe vera juice has me working well right now. My biggest problem is that anything will work short term for me but as soon as my body gets use to it it quits working.
DS1222~Thanks for the tip on the new product. I will consider trying Nutrition Now PB 8 to see if it works better than the Digestive Advantage does for me. Always looking for something else to help me with my IBS-C!

Hi everyone, tried a new probiotic which seems to be helping with my IBS-C so I wanted to share.
I was using digestive advantage but ran out last week and never got around to purchasing more which led to a flare up in symptoms. I was in Whole Foods recently and asked the woman working in the supplement section if she could recommend anything. She told me "Nutrition Now PB 8" is a great choice because it has 8 different strains of bacilli and is stronger with 7 billion organisms per capsule. I've only used this for two days now but noticed a vast improvement in symptoms. No more pain, gas, discomfort, and has even seemed to improve my constipation, which digestive advantage didn't do.
Anyway, I know how hard it can be for people to find a product that works so I wanted to share this with the group! I hope it continues to work for me!
