The first high potency probiotic in Australia.

450 BILLION LACTIC ACID BACTERIA PER SACHET VSL#3 is a patented preparation of live freeze- dried, lactic acid bacteria, developed to provide the optimal concentration and types of healthy bacteria for the gastrointestinal tract.

VSL#3 is different from other probiotic therapies in the high concentration of bacteria, the number and types of bacterial strains, and the growing body of clinical evidence which suggests it may be of use in a variety of gastrointestinal disorders.

Each packet contains at least 450 billion colony forming units (CFU) of bacteria from 8 beneficial strains.

For more information please visit: VSL

Each packet contains Maltose, Silicon dioxide and at least 450 billion colony forming units (CFU) of bacteria from 8 beneficial strains. There are 8 beneficial strains of bacteria present in VSL#3. These include: 4 strains of lactobacilli (L. casei, L. plantarum,L. acidophilus, and L.delbrueckii subspecies bulgaricus); 3 strains of bifidobacteria (B. longum, B. breve, and B. infantis); 1 strain of streptococcus (S. salivarius subspecies thermophilus).

These strains were chosen for their synergy (co-operative activity) and capability to colonise the lower intestine. In addition, these bacterial strains are a normal part of the human gut flora.


The usual quantity is 1 to 2 sachets per day. However, the amount required can vary from person to person and is dependent on person’s lifestyle and medical history.

You may find at times that the amount may change. Adjust the amount as necessary and see which amount works best for you. For further advice, please speak to your healthcare provider.

VSL#3 can be taken in a variety of ways. VSL#3 may be dissolved in water or added to yoghurt or fruit juice. VSL#3 may be prepared with food/water that is at room temperature or below, or has been refrigerated. VSL#3 must be consumed as soon as possible after it has been mixed. Do not prepare VSL#3 with any food/liquid that is warmer than room temperature (i.e. hot tea, soup, etc).

Do not dissolve VSL#3 in carbonated liquids.

VSL#3 should be stored in the refrigerator (2-8 degrees Celcius). If unavoidable, VSL#3 can be kept out of the refrigerator at room temperature (up to 25 degrees to up to 7 days) If it is stored at room temperature for more than 1 week, or exposed to prolonged high temperatures, the microorganisms in VSL#3 may become inactivated and can lose their effect. VSL#3 will be delivered to you in an insulated pack in order to prevent it from becoming over heated during transit. It is not unusual for the cool pack and product to appear warm on delivery. Please place VSL#3 in the refrigerator as soon as possible.

Prior to trying VSL, I had severe abdominal pain after ingestion of most plant foods. Aside from an initial couple days of bloating, my health improved markedly. I still react poorly to fructans, but VSL has at least allowed me to have decent variety in my diet. All other probiotics I had tried prior had no observable effect.

VSL#3 has been a lifesaver for me. It's the only product to have effectively controlled my IBS and various food intolerances. It was recommended by an Adelaide hospital. Various other treatments had failed.
