LP299v is Best Probiotic for IBS

by Jennifer
(South Africa)

On the 3 April I went to see my gynae. I had recently had a bout of very stubborn Thrush. He asked whether I had IBS. I have never been formally diagnosed with IBS but at the late age of 45 it finally dawned on me that that is what I had! He suggested a product called LP299v (marketed as such in South Africa). In 1 week I had substantial relief from all IBS symptoms. Another thing that I have noticed is that my eczema has started to clear up. I still try and stay of wheat, of course, which really aggravates my IBS. The Thrush has also gone, hopefully never to return!

I have not priced this product at other pharmacies, so it may be cheaper/more expensive elsewhere (South African Rand 262.85 for 60 capsules.) Apparently there is a box with 20 capsules available as well. As far as I am concerned, I would be willing to pay even more for a product that has given me this much relief! Initially I took 2 a day, one in the morning and one at night. Once the symptoms were mostly under control I cut back to 1 a day, but was told by my gynae that if I have a bad day with my IBS to take another.

Dawn answered: For anyone who wishes to try Lactobacillus plantarum 299v it is available in several brands in the US.
Jarrow Formulas Ideal Bowel Support 299v -- 30 Vegetarian Capsules is one of the best priced.

Nice one, Jennifer
by: Dawn

Thanks for your response, Jennifer. Because Lactobacillus plantarum 299v is sold world wide under different product names it is helpful for people to discover the names used in other countries. The probiotic bacteria is the same each time - just a different product name.

Great that it dealt to the thrush as well.

tu zen
by: peter

this product seems to have cleared up my geographic tongue, along with a daily dose of oregano oil. I have run out of my 30 capsules ( which cost over $35 )I really can't afford them, but I tried them, just to experiment.My tongue cleared up, but now that I have stopped taking them, my tongue is returning to it's problem. I guess I have a good bacteria problem which I might have to live with due to Tu Zen being so expensive.

Comment on Rx of IBS
by: Dr.kh.Nabakeshore, Manipur

Max. patients who are suffering from IBS are due to hypersecretion of acid ions through Gut-brain pathways,hence disturbed our intestinal Bacterial flora resulting to pain and frequent incomplete loose bowels. I don't think it's wise to prescribe probiotics (Lp299v) only, unless the pathways stop stimulation and destroying the IBF.

Excellent
by: Angela

I have been on Lp299v for the past 3 months.(Purchased in South Africa) I have also been careful with my food combinations and staying away from processed foods.

I have suffered with bad IBS for many years and periodic bouts of thrush. Both these conditions have cleared. I know they have been connected because of bad bacteria in the intestine.

I think this product is excellent and I am so grateful for finding it.

I am in England now and need to find it here.

LP299v
by: Janet

I was a major sufferer of IBS until I saw a Specialist who recommended LP299v. I took it for 6 months and have never looked back and have never had another IBS attack - amazing stuff. I'm a real "pro-biotic" lover.

GUT-BRAIN MESSAGES AND IBS
by: Anonymous

Dr. Nabakeshore, What you mentioned about Gut-Brain pathways and IBS is most interesting.

Kindly tell us more.

Is this perhaps something that can also be remedied? IBS and general stress leads to tinnitus, and I am told that tinnitus sounds are also brainsounds. I would so like to “re-wire” and be rid of IBS and tinnitus.

I have just started on Lp299v.

Thanks for this great page.

LP299v IBS and acidity
by: Annette

LP229v certainly aided my IBS, thank goodness!
I,m not sure if I am understanding this right - is there a connection between to much acidity causing chronic daily heartburn and the onset of flora imbalance in the intestines? And if so, how can this high acidity be reduced or cured? What can cause high acidity other than bad lifestyle?

Dawn answered: Yes, there is a link between too much acidity, heartburn and flora imbalance.

One study got good results with four selected probiotics Probiotical SpA (Novara, Italy), namely Lactobacillus rhamnosus LR06 (DSM 21981), Lactobacillus pentosus LPS01 (DSM 21980), Lactobacillus plantarum LP01 (LMG P-21021), and Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. delbrueckii LDD01 (DSM 22106).

Not sure if you can access those exact strains but note that Lp299v is a good strain of Lactobacillus plantarum.

`Good product
by: AnonymousRennea

This is a good product. Is using it myself. With IBS people must know your bowel is irritated by acid which come from eating something that is not good for you. Most of times it is an allergen like gluten, milkproducts,wheat,even yeast. Sulphates in foods and drinks can also cause less good bacteria. This will cause thrush in mounth or vagina(mucous membranes)and intestines where you can't see. So if you start with sores in your mouth or sensitivity down there you can try Lp299 first, but look at your diet,

Lp299v for cardiovascular system
by: Anonymous

And according to DR. Stephan Sinatra LP299v is good for cardiovascular system (lows blood pressure , etc.)

Dawn added "Results of a study at the Pomeranian Academy of Medicine in Poland, published today (20.11.2002) in the December issue of The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, show that the Lactobacillus plantarum 299v (LP299v) bacteria in the non-dairy fruit juice probiotic drink ProViva can reduce several of the most common risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease."

You can find this same probiotic in GoodBelly Cranberry Blueberry Probiotic Drink and TuZen.

Lp299v

I was wondering if Lp299v affects the pill at all?

Dawn answered
There is no evidence at all that any probiotic, including Lp299v, affects contraceptive pills.

when to take tablets NEW
by: Esme

Excellent product. Sorting out constipation, and boating. Could you please advise me what's the best, do you take 2 tablets with one meal or 1 tablet in morning and in evening or does it work better taking both tablets with supper.
