  • Yes, it works. Trouble is that you get tired of eating yogurt every single day (at least I did). But, yes, I tried it - stayed on it about 6 weeks - my stomach felt a lot better, BMs were more regular and normal, stomach upset and gas were at a minimum. But I also took over the counter medicine for IBS, changed my diet and drank more water. So, I wouldn't suggest relying solely on it - but I would certainly suggest adding it to a modified diet for a few weeks. Then maintaining with at least a 3x a week yogurt.

  • I like kefir. It has a lot more probiotics than yogurt and it is really easy to drink. Also buttermilk has the good bacteria that is great for the tummy.
