Yes, I have been using Culterelle for over 6 months now. It has helped me considerably and has practically eliminated bloating and painful gas for me. I may add, antibiotics played a huge part in my IBS over the years, they obviously destroyed the good bacteria and the Culterelle has reinstated it. Hope this helps you.

Probiotics are bacteria that are cultured in the laboratory and then used to re-balance the microflora of the gut. There can be many reasons for depletion of the microflora namely stress, poor diet, excessive alcohol, oral contraceptives, steroids and antibiotics. Also, the level of friendly bacteria decline with ageing. Whatever you use, be sure it can withstand stomach acid. If it can't, do not use it with food. Also know whether it needs refrigeration or not. Reading labels is important for obtaining information.It is my understanding that the body may initially produce more gas with probiotics and then gradually help relieve this problem.I have been using Culturelle for over a year. It is a special strain of friendly bacteria. It is made to work where it belongs in the large intestines. It can withstand stomach acid which can kill the friendly bacteria. It can be taken at any time with or without meals and is Not kept in the fridge since there is no need for this. It may control certain kinds of D (intestines with an overgrowth of harmful bacteria) and for me personally has controlled intestinal gas. I take one capsule a day and two if I start to get D. I can't find it in stores, it's there someplace, so I order it by phone. You can find out about it at: http://www.culturelle.com/index.html ------------------Take care, Forever Vikee

Mimi,I have been taking Culturelle for over a year. It helps me a lot with the gas and bloating. As Vickie said, it is hard to find in stores, but it arrives very quikly when you order it from the web site. I occasionally find it in my local CVS as well. It is definitely worth a try.Julia
