I have IBS-D, and have tried off and on to eat yogurt and take probiotics, but they don't seem to make a difference. I take calcium, which seems to help it the most. I had heard about the new yogurt "Activia", and bought some to try. Within about 5 days of eating it (once a day), I was constipated. I even had to quit taking my full calcium dose. I've heard lots of people get gas from it, which I do too. Then you year "you get gas because the good bacteria is killing off the bad bacteria".........but I'm not certain any of that has been scientifically proven. It says to try it for 2 weeks. But then what happens? Has our good gut flora been replaced, and we don't have to eat it every day??
Dannon seems to be a reputatble company. What do you think? Have any of you tried it and what were your results? Thanks.
